Rubber can be used to coat structural steels, stainless steels, acid-resistant and duplex steels, aluminium, brass, and in some cases also concrete
As a means of corrosion prevention, rubber coating is used in cases where maintenance-free and long-life protection against strong acids or alkali is required. In particular, corrosion caused by chlorides contained in seawater can effectively be prevented for decades with the application of rubber coating. In the mining industry in particular, rubber coating has been successfully used as wear protection. The elastic properties of rubber offer efficient protection against wear-causing load and stress. Processes where items are simultaneously subjected to both chemical corrosion and mechanical wear can be protected by using rubber coating. Special rubber compounds are available for such uses.
Our certified quality system is based on SFS-EN 14879-1 that guides structural design and manufacture, and SFS-EN 14879-4 that contains rubber coating guidelines and quality assurance documentation.
In our plant in Kiikka, the largest autoclave we use are 3.8 m in diameter and 12 m in length. Object size imposes no limitations to the rubber coating work we do at customers’ sites.
The raw materials we use are either our own compounds that we have been using for years or the result of cooperation done with international companies.
