Oxifree TM198 coating is melted down from a solid resin (in the supply unit) and applied using a heated hose and gun to fit the contours of any complex component. A key feature of the TM198 encapsulation system is the unique non adherence to the substrate, along with self lubricating properties, this allows the protected asset to move if required making it suitable for a wide range of applications subject to expansion/contraction or vibration.
Whilst other solutions require a shutdown and take time to install, Oxifree coating can be applied to live equipment and provides protection immediately, as it cools on impact, saving considerable downtime cost, and no disruption to production. This makes it complementary to (applied alongside and/or over) other protective solutions.
Once the asset is encapsulated, the surface within is protected from moisture and oxygen protecting it from further degradation.
This unique solution is only applied once and will provide many years of protection in the harshest of environments. Should inspection be required this can be done through the coating with the use of NDT /ANDT inspection techniques (Such as UT) or a small area cut away from the coating for visual inspection and can simply be refilled/resealed.
TM198 is ideal for flanges, valves, bearings, piping, pipe supports, clamps and parts protection (both in stock or transit).
