COATINGS Applying Premier Premcote Tape System Aluminising capabilities extended As the leading global supplier of coatings protective against metal dusting, coking, oxidation and sulfidation we have listened to what our customers have told us they need and over the last 5 years extended our furnace capability for long and large components and expanded our capabilities for measurement and control. Aluminising, correctly processed, remains the most effective long term protection mechanism against metal dusting and we have built our reputation for detailed consideration of all processing requirements up over 30 years. As the preferred supplier for an increasing number of customer’s and their steam reforming technology, we intend to continue working alongside, whether for ammonia, methanol or hydrogen production, with the next generation of technology developments.

Marco Marchetti, founder and CEO, explained: “Currently, we do a lot of work with the building and construction sector, synthesizing active ingredients with specific properties – for example, antibacterial or anti-odor products – for use in paints and coatings. Moving forwards, we plan to use our background in biomaterials to expand into biomedical applications. Reproducible synthesis depends on strict control of reaction parameters such as pH, temperature, time and rate of reagent addition, which can all affect the properties of the active ingredient. It is particularly important to control the reaction pH, temperature and stirring, since even slight changes can compromise the end product.” For more information, visit product/orb-jacketed-reactor NEW SPOTLIGHT INFRA-RED EMITTER FROM HERAEUS NOBLELIGHT The new Spotlight infra- red emitter from Heraeus Noblelight precisely targets a concentrated beam of infra-red energy onto surfaces of of plastic components which offer difficult access to allow deburring, clenching or welding. As such, it is ideally suited for automotive industry and for all industrial sectors where plastic components need to be further processed after moulding. The innovative emitter will be shown be shown for the first time at the Fakuma exhibition which takes place in October in Friedrichshafen, Germany. 62 PECM Issue 36 Heraeus Noblelight offers the complete palette of infra- red from near infra-red (NIR) to medium wave carbon technology (CIR). Heraeus Noblelight also carries out tests with specific materials and advises on the choice of the emitter best suited to a specific process. www.heraeus- Tel: 0151 353 2710 Fax: 0151 353 2719 PELSEAL TECHNOLOGIES’ NEW PLV2020 AEROSOL COATING FEATURES THE PROPERTIES OF VITON™ FLUOROELASTOMER IN A CONVENIENT, 12 OZ. SPRAY CAN Pelseal Technologies, LLC (, a manufacturer of more than 800 high-performance liquid fluoroelastomer coatings, adhesives, sealants and caulks, has introduced PLV2020, a Viton™-based formulation in an aerosol spray can. PLV2020 enables the quick application of a chemically resistant, rubbery, Viton™ fluoroelastomer coating. It has a higher solids content compared to other aerosol coatings for better deposition and thickness, so fewer coats are required. As a Viton™ formulation, PLV2020 provides resistance to corrosive liquids including sulfuric, nitric and hydrochloric acids; oil and fuel; hydrocarbons and chlorinated solvents. It exhibits robust performance in a broad temperature range of -40C degrees to +205C degrees.
