  3. 3Anti-corrosion solutions

    Anti-corrosion solutions (acid/alkali)

    Specific industries face critical events of damage and loss in many mechanical components due to corrosión problems. Under certain work conditions in foreshore or acid/alkaline medium, corrosión it is an inevitable issue.

    We can implement the most modern and sophisticated methods of process management, manufacturing and quality, with varied quantitative and qualitative tools, but eventually, corrosion will come to us possibly in less time than what we had anticipated.

    The advanced metallurgical coatings, are an alternative of high productivity with an excellent cost-benefit ratio, placing at the head of the most used alternatives in industries with high levels of damage/loss of mechanical components by corrosión. This is the case of the canned food industry, food cut and preservation industry, agri-processing, meat processing, fishing and seafood products industry, chemical industry, mining, energy, construction components, injection molding processes with gas reléase of fluoride/chlorine ions, aluminum injection and the full range of diez, molds and tooling.

    Each event that implies the discard of a mechanical component due to loss by corrosión requires of an specific solution. Whether the work is done in wet, acidic or alkaline médiums, ASPER tools offer a wide range of advanced coatings specific for each kind industry to counteract events of acidic, alkaline, atmospheric or galvanic corrosion.

    Our tools are supplied under a custom-made solution; that is, after an initial in-situ assessment of the customer problems and needs, we proceed to the development of the most suitable solution in terms of tool design, high precisión manufacture, steel heat treatment conditions, steel surface treatment by nitriding or carburizing (if necessary) so we can finally proceed to the application of a coating with specific functions to serve as a barrier against corrosión thus minimizing, or even eliminating, the leading precursors to this problem.

    Our tools, based on a custom made anti-wear solution, have a longer useful life and reduce significantly the frequency of stops on the process line, achieving a higher productivity with less times of recuperation or change of mechanical components. Depending on your industry and specific applications, this will translate on net savings in the order of 40% to 45% for canning foods, agri-processes and chemical industries and 35% to 40% in plastic/aluminium injection molding.

    If you are experiencing corrosion troubles in some of your process lines, contact us for schedule a free-of-charge visit to your plant, so we can run an in-situ assessment of your needs in order to optimize your plant processes with one or more of our tools and coatings.

    Titanium Nitride (TiN): By far the most widely used in the coating industry for its excellent cost-benefit ratio and the great contribution to useful life over the tools on which is used. It is used to counteract the effects of wear by friction or adhesion, but had lower performance in corrosive environments or in processes where its common the  use of some kind of liquid of corrosive conditions in contact with the tool; however, even in corrosive environments the lifetime is appreciable. Excellent surface hardness (~2,300 Vickers, equivalent to 86HRC), good friction coefficient (0.40) and an adhesion that resists forces up to 70N/mm2. The thickness of the TiN layer varies in a range of 3μm~5μm which it is perfect for remaing below the manufacture tolerances demands and that added to the use of steels of excellent resilience allow that such a hard layer can work with excellent levels of toughness and flexibility notwithstanding of the high levels of hardness. All of this makes TiN the predominant coating in industry.

    Chromium nitride (CrN): The perfect coating for corrosive problems. This is a coating with higher surface hardness and lower friction coefficient than TiN, but has a greater resistance to corrosive media, extending substantially the life of precision tools in processes of such characteristics. Of appreciable hardness (~1,800 Vickers equivalent to 79HRC), good friction coefficient (0.50) and an adhesion that resists forces up to 70N/mm2. The layer thickness of CrN it is around of 20μm, allowing the machining process below most of manufacture tolerances. Under more limited tolerances it is posible to begin with a planning of the machining proces in order to consider then thermical treatment and then the coating process so we can achieve a quality of manufacturing under the most demanding tolerances. Such thickness countervail the hardness needs covered by TiN coatings and give CrN outstanding features to combat the most agresive corrosive media while maintaining an excellent cost-benefit ratio.

    Aluminium Chromium Nitride (AlCrN): High performance nano-structured coating. AlCrN combines a the high performance of TiN in terms of friction and adhesion wear resistence with CrN corrosion resistencia with an additional surplus: It serves as a thermical barrier because it can work under 1,200ºC, making this coating the perfect alternative for cold forming manufacture process, punching and all kind of applications where high teperatures drives precision tools to wear by thermal shock. Its main features are a hardness of 3,200 Vickers (equivalent to more than 90HRC),  has the lowest coefficient of friction with minimum levels of up to 0.28, an adhesion that resists forces up to 80N/mm2 with a layer thickness of just 1μm~4μm which allows a quick machining process with less time involved on planning because this range allow us to work under the most demanding manufacture tolerances achiving the highest performance in terms of hardness, thoughness, corrosion resistance and thermal barrier, making this a very versatile and highly productive coating.
