Thermal coatings

All Griekspoor coatings are marketed under the trade name TOPCOAT®. All TOPCOAT® coatings meet the demands of the latest version of the NBD 10300, the coating specification for (ceramic) coatings developed and used by the Dutch department of waterways.

"Thermal coatings" are 'hard' coatings. These coatings are thermally applied: with the use of an energy source the coating material is applied to the product. GTC uses plasma, HVOF (High Velocity Oxygen Fuel), and laser as an energy source. This results in a hard coating, extremely wear-resistant and corrosion-resistant, that is finished to the specified fit and roughness. Griekspoor Thermal Coatings coats products up to a length of 23 meters, a diameter of 1 meter, and a weight of 20 tonnes.

** Thicker bond coat equals better corrosion resistance.

*** Thicker if necessary (on request)

 

TOPCOAT® Ceramic coating (TC)

TOPCOAT® ceramic coating (TC)

TOPCOAT® Our 'standard' TOPCOAT® is our earliest developed coating and is applied since 1987. For a number of years this was the only coating that could be supplied for hydraulic applications. (They can choose any colour as long as it is black).…
TOPCOAT® ULTRA Ceramic coating (TCU)

TOPCOAT® ULTRA ceramic coating (TCU)

TOPCOAT® Ultra This ceramic coating is mainly used where a very high degree of chemical resistance against strong acids or bases is required. The coating is tribologically similar to the standard TOPCOAT®. The colour is dark grey/green. The coating…
