    The majority of gas turbines require a coating system to protect the components from heat, corrosion or erosion. Component Coating and Repair Services (‘CCRS’) specialise in the development and application of organic and inorganic overlay and diffusion coatings (IP1041), dry film lubricants, barrier coatings and aluminium sacrificial coatings (IP9183). IPCOTE and IPSEAL corrosion protection, erosion protection. Following are the coatings we provide:

    • Anti-fouling
    • Dry film lubricants
    • IPAL diffusion coating for ‘hot end’ sulphidation protection
    • Smooth-Seal Sacrificial Coating System
    • Indestructible paint and coating systems (approved equivalent of SermeTel® coatings)
    • Repair and refurbishment coatings for compressor blades and vanes, combustion/flame tubes, replacement honeycomb seals and re-coating of turbine blades, vanes and nozzle guide vanes (NGVs).
    • Teflon Coatings
    • Rockhard Stoving Enamels and Lacquers
    • Phosphating
    • Barrier coatings
    • Aluminium sacrificial coatings

    Key characteristics for these coatings are :-

    • Protect against corrosion and particle erosion
    • Temperature resistant
    • No embrittlement of high strength steel
    • Sacrificial to ferrous alloys
    • Resistant to aerospace oil, fuel and hydraulic fluid
    • Suitable for application to both external and internal surfaces – smooth, low profile film
    • Easily repairable without dismantling or oven curing the component
    • Environmentally friendly – REACh compliant, water based and solvent free
    • Durable and damage resistant

    CCRS has the capability to process a wide range, size and complexity of components, from small compressor blades to the latest in landing gear components.

    Onsite coating services

    Bespoke onsite coating application services are also available on request.
