DANBURY, Conn., 6 Jan. 2015. Praxair Inc. (NYSE:PX) is introducing a line of chromium (VI)-free ceramic aluminum coatings for aerospace applications that are sustainably produced with the same high performance of legacy chrome-containing coatings.
The company’s SermeTel CF and SermaLoy J CF systems meet the stringent requirements of gas turbine OEM specifications and preserve the surface finish of engine components to extend the useful life of critical parts. The coatings are also compliant with Europe’s regulation for the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH).
SermeTel CF Coatings are chrome-free replacements of legacy SermeTel 5380, SermeTel 2F-1, and SermeTel 6F-1 coatings. They provide protection from corrosion, heat degradation, and fouling of components.
The SermaLoy J CF Coating is a chrome-free diffusion slurry that offers equivalent performance to traditional Sermaloy J coatings. SermaLoy J CF coatings provide protection against hot corrosion and oxidation in gas turbine engines and other severe environments.
Praxair Surface Technologies offers a comprehensive array of high-performance coatings and technologies to the aviation, energy and other industries. By continuously advancing coatings technologies, Praxair Surface Technologies helps customers improve environmental performance, decrease energy consumption, extend component life, improve productivity, minimize downtime, reduce operating costs and produce high-quality products.
