We make our mark on economic efficiency.

printing industry

Paper processing procedures at high speeds develop forces which can take a serious toll, even on machine components made of steel. The dust caused by the paper friction also results in considerable cleaning requirements - factors that hinder smooth, uninterrupted production. Printing processes pose special challenges: preventing traces of ink, maintaining web tension without damaging the material and resistance to dust all require material surfaces that meet a wide variety of requirements at the same time. Impreglon offers its customers solutions with outstanding nonstick properties and high wear resistance thanks to tailor-made coating systems with special reinforcement materials. And the longer service life of the equipment, as well as improved production, save money.

Bookbinding machines (nonstick coatings)

Bookbinding machines

Most modern bookbinding machines use very powerful PUR adhesives to glue the spines. The adhesive is heated to the required processing temperature in a glue basin and applied to the spines of the books using multiple coating rolls.

Easy cleaning

At the end of the day, the equipment is shut down and the adhesive cools off and hardens. Extensive mechanical effort is required to remove the residue. Valuable time is wasted cleaning the glue basin and coating rolls. Cleaning normally has to be done on a daily basis before the bookbinding equipment is started up. The cleaning process damages the rolls and basin over time.

ChemCoat® & MagnaCoat®

The application of ChemCoat® and MagnaCoat® considerably improves the nonstick properties of glue basins and coating rolls. The hardened adhesive residue can be peeled off the basin and roll by hand, and the machine is quickly ready for use again.

Easy cleaning, cost efficiency

Cleaning time and machine downtime can be drastically reduced. Rolls and glue basins are not damaged.

High-quality nonstick coatings and slide coatings

The ChemCoat® coating procedure creates a high-quality surface coating with excellent nonstick properties and/or very good sliding properties. Thanks to our special infusion process, our ChemCoat® polymer coatings and fluoropolymer coatings are particularly well anchored to the substrate.

ChemCoat® nonstick coatings can be applied to aluminum, steel, stainless steel, ceramics and some coppers. They are used in particular in applications requiring good sliding and nonstick properties, as well as high wear resistance.

Coating thicknesses 7 µm to 70 µm
Temperature range: -40 °C to +260 °C
Surface roughnesses (Ra): up to approx. 1.5 µm
FDA approved: yes, with certain coating types
Fluoropolymer layer

Polymer coating systems for heavy-duty corrosion protection

MagnaCoat® coatings are thick-film polymer and fluoropolymer coatings with a virtually non-porous surface. They offer excellent corrosion resistance, good nonstick properties and high electrical impact resistance, even at high temperatures. The coatings also provide excellent barrier protection to resist aggressive chemicals.

MagnaCoat® polymer coatings can be applied to all surfaces made of aluminum, steel, stainless steel or other alloys.

Coating thicknesses: 100 µm to 800 µm
Temperature range: -40 °C to +260 °C
Surface roughnesses (Ra): up to approx. 1.5 µm
FDA approved: yes, with certain coating types

Ink pans (nonstick coatings)

Ink pans

Ink pans are essential in the printing industry and are constantly in use.

Quick cleaning

Every time the ink is changed, the leftover ink must be cleaned out of the ink pans and containers quickly so that the next print run can begin.

ChemCoat®

ChemCoat® ensures that ink residue no longer sticks. It cannot dry and adhere to the pan, making it easy to remove. The use of cleaning agents and rags is no longer necessary. The ink can be changed much more quickly.

Greater process efficiency, less damage

Reduction in cleaning and production time. Prevention of damage caused by scraping off dried ink residue.

Punch cylinders (antiwear protective coating)

Punch cylinders

When labels are printed, various shapes and sizes are stamped out of the roll of labels with punch cylinders.

Stability, resistance to wear

During the punching process, the blades on the counter-cutting cylinder keep colliding with the metal surface of the punch cylinder. The punch cutters begin to wear over time and become dull. The surface of the punch cylinder can be damaged.

StarCoat®

StarCoat® provides extremely durable protection from wear and effectively protects the punch and counter-cutting cylinders from damage and abrasion.

Increased productivity, fewer repairs

Increase in productivity due to more punch operations. Less frequent repairs and replacements.

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
