Conventional chrome or nickel coatings are no longer sufficient to meet the highest demands. SuperChrome® is the perfect solution.

Ball valves (corrosion and wear protection)

Ball valves

Ball valves are used in some of the most severe conditions, including in steam applications, in the oil & gas industry, mining, fluid transfer and fracking, etc. The use of exotic alloys to get the required metallurgical results has proven cost-prohibitive.

Low wear, chemical resistance

Ball valves must be able to conduct the product flow, to limit it or to stop it reliably and they should require only minimal maintenance. Wear, corrosion resistance and chemical resistance are therefore the key aspects when selecting the correct coating for this application.

SuperChrome® and ArmorClad®

Using SuperChrome® I, SuperChrome® II and ArmorClad® considerably improves the chemical resistance, and it improves resistance to wear and corrosion in both alkaline and acidic environments. These applications enable ball valve manufacturers to use less exotic alloys and achieve the same or even better results.

Reduced maintenance, increased cost efficiency

Reduced maintenance, longer product service life, lower costs and high product quality.

Excellent protection from wear

StarCoat® metal and carbide coating systems are applied with high-speed thermal spraying techniques to achieve exceptional resistance to wear. The low proportion of pores creates an extremely hard surface of up to 70 HRc.

SuperChrome® belongs to the StarCoat® family. It is a cost-efficient alternative to conventional hard chromes, with high resistance to wear and corrosion. This coating is a favorite for rolls in wet applications like in the paper industry.

ArmorClad® is another member of the StarCoat® range. It provides an even harder carbide surface that is virtually pore-free and can withstand even the sharpest knives. When mechanically finished, this coating is particularly well suited for counter-cutting cylinders used to cut paper, cardboard and films.

Coating thicknesses: 100 µm to 800 µm
Surface roughnesses (Ra): approx. 0.2 µm (mech. finished) up to 30 µm
Temperature range: -40 °C to +950 °C
Surface hardness: 53 to 70 HRc

Mud rotor (corrosion and wear protection)

Mud rotors

Mud rotors not only suffer from high levels of wear, but also corrosion, erosion and chrome de-lamination. The drilling times are also short. Most mud rotors have historically been chrome plated or nickel plated.

Protection from wear and warping

Increased drilling times, reduced wear and repair times and increased corrosion resistance are required. The coating must be capable of handling horizontal and vertical warping.

SuperChrome® and ArmorClad®

Using SuperChrome® I, SuperChrome® II and ArmorClad® considerably improves the chemical resistance, increases wear resistance and improves corrosion resistance in both alkaline and acidic environments. The use of a thermal spray substrate and a fluoropolymer top coat allows for a lower friction coefficient from the start. No polishing step is required.

Reduced wear, shorter repair times

The main benefits are shorter repair times, reduced porosity, a harder coating material and a variety of coating systems that can be adapted to the specific application. Moving away from hard chrome eliminates the historical issues of fractures in the coating, which promote de-lamination of the coating and enable pollution to penetrate to the substrate material.

Mandrels (corrosion and wear protection)

Mandrels

Mandrels are extremely prone to wear and frequently suffer from corrosion, erosion and chrome de-lamination. The high costs for tool rental also only enable short drilling times. Most hydraulic mandrels have historically been chrome plated or nickel plated. However, due to the flexing and drilling pressures, these traditional coatings have limitations.

Longer drilling times, reduced wear

Suitable coatings must be selected, which extend the drilling times, reduce wear, increase corrosion resistance and reduce repair requirements.

SuperChrome® and ArmorClad®

Using SuperChrome® I, SuperChrome® II and ArmorClad® considerably improves the chemical resistance, increases wear resistance and improves corrosion resistance in both alkaline and acidic environments.

Longer product service life, increased efficiency

The main benefits are lower porosity, a harder coating, quicker repair times and a longer service life. Moving away from hard chrome eliminates the historical issues of fractures in the coating, which promote de-lamination of the coating and enable pollution to penetrate to the substrate material.
