VICOTE® Coatings, VICTREX® PEEK™ Polymer, High Temperature Performance Powder Coatings for Strength and Durabilty
By John Robinson, Global Technical Leader, VICOTE® Coatings
Victrex plc is an innovative world leader in high performance materials through the manufacture of VICTREX® PEEK™ polymer, a unique high performance, versatile, easy to process thermoplastic. Victrex is dedicated to the development of polyketone-based products and services, including APTIV™ films and VICOTE® Coating.
Renowned for its high temperature performance, VICTREX PEEK polymer is a semi crystalline polymer with a melting point of 340°C (644°F) and a Tg of 143°C (289°F). Its enhanced properties make it suitable for use in many markets ranging from aerospace, energy, electronics, automotive, food processing, medical, semiconductors, textiles and more.
The key properties of VICTREX PEEK polymer are its high temperature performance, excellent friction and wear resistance, excellent chemical resistance, low flammability, smoke and toxic gas emission, hydrolysis resistance, electrical performance, high strength to weight ratio, and dimensional stability.
Based on VICTREX PEEK polymer, VICOTE Coatings offer exceptional scratch and wear resistance, high temperature performance, strength and durability to improve the wear performance and life of the coated part in an application. Although Fluoropolymers have historically dominated the coatings industry they have certain limitations especially in service conditions where high temperature combined with wear and abrasion or erosion are involved.
A VICTREX PEEK coating can provide corrosion resistance at thinner DFT’s than many Fluoropolymers. The thinner coating in conjunction with the lower density makes VICTREX PEEK a cost effective alternative to the more traditional corrosion coatings. Typically a VICOTE coating has around 60% of the density of a Fluoropolymer coating making it a competitive coating on a volumetric cost basis, but in addition, the higher mechanical properties and excellent permeation resistance means that performance can be achieved with thinner coatings. Being a one-coat system, VICOTE Coatings can be applied to the substrate without a primer increasing the efficiency of application and reducing the overall systems cost.
VICTREX PEEK polymer has exceptional hydrolysis resistance and high temperature water and steam has little effect - also it is inherently pure polymer with low levels of extractable ionic species. VICTREX PEEK polymer has good electrical properties over a wide temperature range and has excellent wear, abrasion and cut through resistance which is ideal for demanding applications in aggressive environments that require exposure to extreme conditions such as high temperature, chemicals and abrasion. Providing the inherent properties of VICTREX PEEK polymer, VICOTE Coatings are suitable for use in a wide variety of markets ranging from industrial and automotive, semiconductor and electronics, pharmaceutical, to consumer. VICOTE Coatings can help to extend application life, improve product performance and functionality, reduce systems cost and facilitate design freedom to achieve product differentiation in applications including; chemical processing and transport components, vessels, pipes, valves, and ball seats, industrial mixers and agitators, textile manufacturing, equipment components, ultra-pure water systems, process tanks, and appliances.
VICTREX PEEK polymer has for many years been available as a high performance engineering resin for use in the injection moulding, extrusion and compression moulding processes. In May 2006 Victrex launched the VICOTE Coating range of powder coating products designated the 700 Series based on the VICTREX PEEK high performance engineering polymer and launched a global marketing initiative to promote VICOTE Coating for powder coating applications. Victrex has developed processing techniques for VICTREX PEEK polymer to be applied as a powder coating utilising conventional electrostatic equipment.
VICOTE Powder Coating:
VICOTE powder coatings open up exciting new opportunities across a wide range of industries where parts require enhanced corrosion protection, wear and cut through resistance. These coated parts range in diversity from components in Oil and Gas, Ultra Pure Water Systems, Industrial, Pharmaceutical and Food Processing applications. VICOTE 700 Series powders have excellent radiation resistance and can withstand high doses of Gamma radiation without embrittlement.
For some applications in the Oil and Gas and Chemical Plant Industry VICOTE may be the only cost effective answer especially if a combination of properties such as chemical resistance, wear, abrasion and erosion resistance in conjunction with high temperature are service condition requirements.
A key advantage of coating with VICOTE Coating is that it provides a highly cost effective means of enhancing part performance. Single parts and small volume production runs are suited to application of VICOTE Coating as are larger automated parts production. When a layer of high-build VICTREX PEEK polymer is applied to a substrate it confers all the properties of VICTREX PEEK polymer to that application and helps retain the structural benefit of the substrate.
VICTREX PEEK polymer is an inherently pure polymer. Applications in the food industry are possible because of VICOTE Coating’s FDA compliance for food contact use. The VICOTE 700 Series powder coatings are also RoHS compliant and are halogen free according to the IEC 61294 definition.
VICOTE Coating can be applied by conventional electrostatic coating equipment onto a diverse range of components and substrates. Furthermore the processes are environmentally friendly as they minimise water contamination and air pollution. There are no VOC’s given off with environmentally friendly VICOTE powder coatings.
Electrostatic powder coating has formed the main focus of the Victrex development programme to introduce VICOTE Coatings to the coating market. This is one of the two most widely used coating techniques, the equipment being relatively inexpensive to purchase for a small scale coating operation, but fully automatic coating lines can also be utilised for applying VICOTE if the production runs warrant it.
There is little difference between Electrostatic spray coating with say Nylon or Fluoropolymer powder and a VICOTE Coating powder with regards to the application equipment. The main difference is that VICTREX PEEK polymer is processed at higher temperatures than nearly all other polymers and thus there is a requirement that the ovens have high temperature capability. Ovens that can operate continuously at temperatures up to 430°C are required to enable the polymer to melt and flow out. The powder coating equipment used to spray VICOTE Coating should be thoroughly cleaned of any other polymer residue before introducing VICOTE Coating into the system otherwise surface defects can result due to cross contamination. A Ten Step guide for powder coating with VICOTE Coating is available from Victrex on request along with a processing and application guide.
Electrostatic powder coating is a cold powder deposition technique with a simple pre-treatment of the substrate by de-greasing and grit blasting; most de-greasing solvents would be suitable and Aluminium Oxide provides a suitable media for forming a mechanical key the part to be coated. A surface profile with a Ra of typically 20% of the total coating DFT (Dry Film Thickness) is required to obtain the optimum adhesion. VICOTE powder coatings are applied by spraying fine powder with a nominal particle size of 50 microns onto either a cold or heated part surface. After application of the powder the part is heated in an oven to around 400°C where the powder melts to form a continuous film. The process can be repeated to build up the required coating thickness, typically 2 coats are required. After the final coat and melt flow out in the oven the part can be cooled in air to the solid semi crystalline state. VICOTE powder coatings can be applied typically between 100 microns and 1mm and have been applied on a variety of substrates including Carbon Steel, Stainless Steel, Cast Steel and Aluminium.
Victrex has been recently developing new powder coating grades based on VICOTE Coating which will offer an even higher level of adhesion to metal substrates than the standard powders and will be suitable for coating of internal surfaces such as pipes and other parts with ID’s. Initial tests have shown that there is no de-lamination of the coating from the substrate when subjected to thermal shock testing from 250°C (482°F) into cold water.
