    Surface treatments and the problems they solve

    Controlled Shot Peening
     

    Controlled Shot Peening
    Tensile stresses induced during welding, grinding, machining and heat treatment are replaced with beneficial compressive stresses proven to prevent fatigue and stress corrosion cracking.

    Shot Peen Forming
     

    Shot Peen Forming
    Creates curvature in aircraft wing skins to enhance lift and efficiency and to protect against fatigue. Also used to correct the distortion of components following manufacturing.

    Laser Peening
     

    Laser Peening
    Laser peening induces compressive stress with precision accuracy into key areas of a component up to 5 to 10 times deeper than other conventional cold working techniques.

    C.A.S.E. Isotropic Finishing Super finishing

    C.A.S.E. Isotropic Finishing Super finishing
    Removes surface asperities to create a mirror like finish, reducing macro and micro-pitting, oil temperature and noise whilst promoting lubricant retention.

    Thermal Spray Coatings
     

    Thermal Spray Coatings
    Wear resistant and barrier coatings such as HVOF, arc and flame spray, protecting against high temperatures, wear, corrosion and oxidation, as well as restoring parts to their original condition.

    Engineered Coatings
     

    Engineered Coatings
    The correct coating system will improve part wear life and reduce maintenance costs. Protecting against environmental damage and corrosion. We can also develop coatings for new applications.

    Parylene Conformal Coatings

    Parylene Conformal Coatings
    Parylene is a highly lubricious and ultra thin conformal coating with outstanding chemical, moisture and electrical barrier protection for metals, elastomers, electronics and plastic.

    Wet Treatments (Anodising)

    Wet Treatments (Anodising)
    Wet processing techniques improve atmospheric and chemical corrosive resistance and also enhance the application of paint primer and adhesives.

    Material Analysis and Testing

    Material Analysis and Testing
    IMR Test Labs offer mechanical and metallurgical testing including material testing, failure analysis, chemical analysis and weld testing to ensure design and manufacturing integrity.

    Onsite Services
     

    Onsite Services
    Specialist teams can be mobilised worldwide to repair large or fixed equipment, reducing shipping costs and downtime to the same specification as in-house processing.

    Peentex Architectural Finishes

    Textured and Architectural Finishes (Peentex)
    PEENTEX protects internal and external cladding, street furniture and signage. Creates a decorative finish for architectural purposes on metal, glass, wood and acrylic. Non-slip textured finish for tooling and equipment.

    Peenflex Protective Mouldings

    Protective Mouldings (Peenflex)
    PEENFLEX damage and abrasion resistant mouldings protect parts through the various stages of processing, lifting, moving, storage and despatch. Uniquely made for each application.
