Today, Irathane polyurethane elastomeric coating are extending the wear
life of vital plant an equipment everywhere. Designed for on site application,
they operate with unequalled reliability in the most severe abrasive and
corrosive environments, such as mineral processing and nuclear, coal-fired
or hydroelectric power generation.
Irathane has dominated the field of
polyurethane elastomeric systems for more than 25 years - producing coating
which are considerably tougher and longer lasting than the surface material
A reputation for quality
Irathane's range of easily applied primer, adhesive and topcoat systems
provide outstanding, long-term protection to most substances including Steel,
Aluminium, Fibreglass, Epoxy, Wood, Plastics, Rubbers and Concrete.
As a result, no other protective coatings company enjoys such a reputation
for quality performance.
IRATHANE GLASS FLAKE LINING SYSTEMS
Two main system
The Irathane range offers several routes to ensure the desired performance.
By combining the right resin "backbone" with the right size and
type of glass flake - or other filler - Irathane can provide the optimum
coating. This is achieved by selecting from either the 800 range or the
900 range. In any event, factors to be taken into consideration include:
chemical resistance, temperature resistance, stress areas, life expectancy,
cost and logistics.
By controlling the formulation and product characteristics, coatings can
be manufactured with minimal residual stress, a coefficient of expansion
similar to metal and excellent adhersion to metal concrete.
|Highly corrosion resistant.
Good in contact with dilute acids and alkalis at moderate temperatures.
Good cure characteristics in humid conditions.
