CeramaClad – Wear Resistant Abrasion Ceramic Epoxy Coating

CeramaCladTM Series – High performance wear resistant ceramic epoxy polymer coating

 

The Chemistry

As the surface protection needs of our clients grow due to operational changes in their processes, the technologies we continue to innovate evolve from breakthroughs in materials science and application methods to meet the toughest surface protection needs. FMP began designing a low temperature cure, high abrasion and chemical resistant coating technology many years ago. The goal was to design a technology that would be much more advanced and offer our clients with the ultimate in protection and the fastest return to service time of any material on the market. The technology path led to the development of a composite coating chemistry. By incorporating a hybridized novalac epoxy resin system with our existing proprietary high temperature ceramic chemistry, we were able to design a product that could offer low temperature cure and survive in a high temperature environment.

Further enhancements to the coating technology involves the use of new nano material science to improve the coating rheology, wear and impact resistance. Our proprietary rheology enhancer allows the coating to maintain edge retention and hang more than 40 mils on a vertical surface. This further reduces the application time, allowing the coating to be applied in a single coat application.

Innovation continues with the use of urethane and elastoplastic technology in our CeramaClad AR technology to further chance the coatings impact and abrasion resistant. CeramaClad AR offer the highest flex on any ceramic coating on the market today.

The Product

CeramaClad, is our newest series of high performance composite ceramic novolac epoxy technologies designed with extreme service in mind – high temperature, high abrasion, in a sulfuric acid environment. The application format of CeramaClad, is the most versatile in the industry, it can be applied by brush, airless spray or 2:1/4:1 heated plural component for maximum production throughout. The quick return to service allows contractors to apply the coating and inspect or reapply additional coats on a consecutive work shift basis. This eliminates any down time waiting for the coating to dry. Our range of extreme service and low temperature cure products are unmatched. There are a variety of CeramaClad formulas available for every facet of surface protection.

CeramaClad ARII [Versatile Sprayable Ceramic]

This is the fastest return to service in the CeramaClad series as it offers the optimal balance of chemical resistance and abrasion wear.  It’s 2:1 plural component format makes it easy to use compact cartridge tubes or heated plural component spray.

CeramaClad AR [Ultimate Abrasion Protection]

Application of CeramaClad AR is direct to a prepared steel substrate. This is a highly filled brush or trowel applied ceramic coating that is designed for maximum wear and impact resistance.  AR is a urethane epoxy hybrid coating incorporating ceramic and elastoplastic filler to form a composite coating that offers outstanding wear and impact resistance.

CeramaClad ARX [High Temperature Abrasion Resistance]

CeramaClad ARX is designed to handle high temperature resistance in the harshest of chemical environments in the power and oil and gas industry.

Patcher R4HT [High temperature patching compound]

Accessory Product Patcher. Patcher is a quick set metal rebuild product to be applied to fill pits, voids and rebuild lost metal prior to the application of CeramaClad.
