Abakan Introduces Disruptive Materials for Billion Dollar Metal Processing Equipment Market

Published August 7, 2014
Abakan Inc., an emerging leader in the advanced coatings and metal formulations markets, has completed initial field-testing, on full-sized production equipment, of its proprietary nanocomposite liquid metal corrosion-resistant coating, PComP M, with a leading steel producer. The company is also working with several of the world's largest steel companies to validate component life extension on zinc pot rolls used extensively in the continuous hot dip galvanizing process, as well as other components used in the handling and processing of molten metals.

"PComP M was developed to extend the useful life of zinc pot rolls and other components exposed to liquid metal," stated MesoCoat, Inc. CEO Stephen C. Goss. "PComP M has demonstrated vastly improved molten metal corrosion resistance, combined with increased durability and reliability in the rapidly changing temperature environment encountered in molten metal contact, as compared to conventional materials. Based on demonstrated useful life improvement obtained in laboratory tests, we believe PcomP M can provide significant cost savings to our industrial customers while generating a handsome new revenue stream. We expect to receive additional orders within the next 90 days."

"Our PComP M coating is comparable to Teflon* for non-stick cookware," explained Goss. "We protect the base metal, including rolls used in galvanizing and aluminizing lines, die casting molds and in several other similar applications that involve molten metal. PComP M coatings ensure that the molten metal does not damage or degrade the rolls, molds, and other components that are exposed to liquid metals during the galvanizing and other molten metal handling process. Metals also do not adhere to the coated parts, reducing clean-up time. PcomP M significantly extends the useful life of these components leading to considerable cost savings through reduction of early replacement, refurbishment, recoating, and maintenance expenses. Extended component life also results in tremendous savings in energy consumption while reducing production losses."

"The economics are very simple," continued Goss. "In over 3,000 hours of simulated testing, PComP M coatings have extended useful component life by 6 to 10 times compared to the current state of the art coatings under similar test environments. For costs comparable to those of current coatings methods, even at only a two times increase in useful life, our PComP M coatings could save galvanizers millions of dollars every year."
