As a means of corrosion prevention, rubber coating is used in cases where maintenance-free and long-life protection is required e.f. against strong acids or alkali. 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, 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.
Quality and service options
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.
