Saint-Gobain Thermal Spray Flexicord
Coating Solutions that Have You Covered
Saint-Gobain Coating Solutions created its line of thermal spray Flexicord products to deliver excellent resistance to thermal cycling, abrasion, corrosion & dielectric exposure. These flame spray coatings provide the optimal wear-resistant barrier to extend the life of parts & equipment in demanding applications. Regardless of the shape, size or composition of the substrate, Saint-Gobain has a cost-effective Flexicord coating solution.
Flexicord thermal spray consumables are used in tandem with Saint-Gobain’s proprietary Master Jet® & Top Jet flame spray unit for optimal coating efficiency. Flexicord products provide the ultimate easy-to-apply protective coatings that ensure reliable performance for a range of process conditions efficiently & effectively.
How Do Thermal Spray Flexicord Products Extend Surface Life?
The flame spray process extends the life of components by imparting a melted consumable coating material – in the form of a flexible cord – using a handy or automatic flame spray gun. The molten material is sprayed onto the component, generally at a temperature below 250º F (121º C), without altering the nature of the substrate.
The flame spray process is generally easier to set up. Saint-Gobain’s Master Jet® , Top Jet and Master Jet® Auto flame spray units deliver coatings on external components, while our ID Gun covers internal diameter surfaces. Compared with HVOF and plasma sprayed coatings, Saint-Gobain’s Flexicord consumables impart coatings with less internal stress, allowing thicker coatings with better thermal cycling resistance & wear protection.
The Saint-Gobain Flexicord Advantage
Saint-Gobain’s strictly controlled raw materials & close attention to quality throughout the manufacturing process ensure a uniform product with lot-to-lot consistency for guaranteed reliability & predictable performance.
