General Information

Where are linings generally possible?

Good adhesion between the lining and base material is a prerequisite for a successful outcome. Steel structures are to be lined in the vast majority of cases and the new lining technologies have made it possible to achieve a perfect result on metals such as aluminium, stainless steel etc. Non-metals such as concrete and even organic material have also been successfully lined. However, this method is so specialised that it cannot be detailed on this website. Contact with one of our experienced technicians is recommended in order to ascertain the technical requirements on an individual basis.

A designer should be aware at the component design stage that a protective lining can only be applied by hand and that those surfaces to be coated need to be easily accessible. Additionally, the costs of lining can be substantially reduced if accessibility is considered at the design phase. Tubular structures require special attention. Detailed information can be found in the standards series EN 14879/1-4 "coatings and linings made of organic materials for protection of industrial apparatus and plants against corrosion caused by aggressive media."

A workshop based lining of components or plant equipment will ensure the best result and the largest object that can be vulcanised in our vulcaniser should not exceed the given dimensions of 4,500 mm x 10,500mm. Metal structures that can not be accommodated within the dimensions should be partitionable.

Conventional vulcanization in a vulcanizer will ensure the best results for the adherence of protective linings. Boilers and other similar containers that are to be lined can also serve as a vulcanizer in their own right under certain conditions.
