Durability

the ITAC Effect

Fixing, enhancing, protecting and preserving for long term performance, reliability, and dependability.

We appreciate our technical coatings are often the finishing requirement for any product that is built to last. Itac ensure only the best polymers, additives and solvents are used for each application to promote a product’s reliability and longevity. We aim to enhance our partner’s and end user’s reputation. Product failure is not an option!

JUST SOME OF OUR

'Durabilty' effects

Abrasion Resistance

UV Resistance

Anti-Corrosion

Abrasion Resistance

The degree of abrasion resistance of a coating will be a function of the physical properties of the polymeric species used in that coating. Subtle changes in the nature of the polymers and additives used can adjust this resistance to abrasion. Abrasion resistance is normally a required feature in products such as conveyor systems, life rafts, canopies, and upholstery.

UV Resistance

When ultraviolet (UV) light shines on adhesives and coatings they are always subject to a degree of deterioration with time. This deterioration can be a change in the physical properties (e.g. embrittlement), optical properties (e.g. colour fade) or any number of other deterioration routes. Certain additives can be used that reduce the rate of deterioration and extend the operational life of the coating or adhesive.

Anti-Corrosion

Anti corrosion refers to the protection of metal surfaces from corrosion in certain environments. Corrosion is the oxidation of a refined metal into a more chemically stable form such as an oxide. Corrosion typically requires the presence of moisture and oxygen and is accelerated in the presence of certain chemical species such as some salts. Anti-corrosion coatings are normally coatings that stop one (or more) of the essential species from being present (usually water) although coatings can be formulated with sacrificial elements that are changed chemically in preference to corrosion taking place. Steel roofing sheets, pipework and external metal construction are typical facets of industry where anti-corrosion coatings are applied.
