The Specialized Nylon Coating Process On Metal

May 18 2018

The specialized nylon coating process will be an emphatic success provided that all instructions are carried out to the letter. Here then, is just a brief example of how clear instructions on nylon coating for metal are laid down.

Firstly, specific application directions are provided. Thereafter, a curing timetable is provided. And finally storage temperature requirements are given for when the nylon coating material is no longer required and needs to be sealed and stored away for later use. The material does, however, only have a six month shelf life, so users do need to plan for this. The nylon coating materials will be applied to metal surfaces that need protection from corrosive elements. That, incidentally, forms part of the application instructions.

The liquid formula is applied easily through dipping, painting or spraying. It is applied to all surfaces that specifically require protection from aircraft fuels, oil, lubricants, salt spray, water and phosphate ester hydraulic fluids. The coating also provides excellent high impact abrasion resistance, flexibility and toughness at temperatures ranging from minus seventy degrees Fahrenheit to over three hundred degrees Fahrenheit.

In regard to application instructions, the following rules apply. All surfaces must be carefully cleaned of oils, grease and dust prior to applying the nylon coating. Also, the container must be shaken before being opened. Wet surfaces need to air dry in a dust and lint free area. When spraying the coating, it is recommended that a specialized nylon thinner be applied at a twenty five percent to fifty percent volume ratio. This is necessary to avoid what is known as cob-webbing.

And after the coating work is completed, all equipment needs to be cleaned with a specialized nylon thinner formula. Curing begins by allowing one to two hours to achieve a tack free environment.
