Special Coatings for Plastic Chains

Introduction

Plastic chains are widely used in various industries, from food and beverage to automotive and packaging. However, they may not always meet the specific requirements of each application, such as wear resistance, chemical resistance, or low friction. This is where special coatings come in – they can help enhance the properties of plastic chains and make them suitable for more demanding environments.

Types of Coatings

1. PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene)

PTFE is a non-stick coating that provides excellent release properties and low friction. It is commonly used in food processing and packaging applications, as well as in medical devices and semiconductor manufacturing. PTFE-coated plastic chains have a smooth surface that resists adhesion and buildup of dirt or debris.

2. DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon)

DLC is a hard and wear-resistant coating that is often used in automotive and aerospace applications. It can provide a low coefficient of friction and improve the durability of plastic chains under high stress or impact. DLC-coated plastic chains also have a dark black color that gives them a unique appearance.

3. Nylon

Nylon is a tough and flexible coating that can improve the impact resistance and abrasion resistance of plastic chains. It is commonly used in conveyor systems and heavy-duty equipment, as well as in marine and offshore applications. Nylon-coated plastic chains have a slightly rough texture that enhances their grip and handling.

Benefits of Coated Plastic Chains

  • Improved wear resistance
  • Increased chemical resistance
  • Reduced friction and noise
  • Enhanced durability and lifespan
  • Customizable colors and surface finishes

Q&A

1. What is the maximum temperature that a PTFE-coated plastic chain can withstand?

Typically, a PTFE-coated plastic chain can withstand temperatures up to 260°C (500°F), depending on the specific grade of PTFE and the duration of exposure.

2. Can DLC coatings be applied to any type of plastic chain?

No, DLC coatings require a certain level of surface hardness and smoothness in order to adhere properly. Not all plastic chains can meet these requirements, so it’s important to consult with a coating specialist before applying DLC.

3. How thick is a typical nylon coating on a plastic chain?

A typical nylon coating can range from 0.025 mm (0.001 in) to 0.254 mm (0.010 in), depending on the application and the desired level of protection.

4. Are Ever-Power’s plastic chains FDA-approved for food contact?

Yes, our plastic chains are made from FDA-approved materials and comply with food safety regulations. We can provide documentation upon request.

5. Can Ever-Power match a specific color or surface finish for a coated plastic chain?

Yes, we offer a range of standard and custom colors and surface finishes for our coated plastic chains. Our in-house color matching capabilities ensure consistent and accurate results. Contact us to discuss your specific requirements.
