An incredibly hot affair... Our melting process

By means of melting, gas- and liquid-tight layers can be achieved which exhibit excellent resistance to all types of wear and withstand the highest mechanical loads.


The material applied in an injection process (mostly self-fluxing nickel and cobalt alloys) is fused with the base material at approx. 1000 °C in a further process step. The applied layers with lowered melting points are heated and melted by means of a fuel gas-oxygen flame or in a vacuum furnace. This process ensures that a firm bond with the substrate is obtained. Such coatings are proven to be among the most effective corrosion protection measures.


Properties and applications:

  • Increase in wear resistance for roll slitters
  • Gland packings in salt/brine plants
  • Bushings for wave tunnels in vessels (marine applications)
  • Piston rods
  • Hydraulic cylinders
