CFC Thermal Coatings and specialist services RS+SH24F

Specialist CFC Thermal Coatings offer a number of benefits to CFC composites, further enhancing their performance while reducing C/C dust contamination. Surface coatings allow users to also protect their CFC applications from abrasion, allow the production to be used in non-vacuum furnaces, to increase its life, durability and in some cases to use it in even higher temperature environments.

Neftec is partnered with KoMiCo a global leader in specialists Thermal coatings for a wide range of applications. Working with KoMico we can tailor our coatings to your needs offering bespoke services. With our CFC and KoMiC’s Thermal coatings we offer ultra reliable, precisely applied and help further increase the performance of our CFC composites.

Our CFC Coatings offer many unique advantages over traditional CFC coatings. The ability for us to tailor make a CFC coating that is specific to our customers needs allows them to enhance their workflow while reducing their overall costs.  And just like our CFC composites, our coatings are performance driven.

CFC Pore Impregnation

All CFC Composites have a porous structure. These pores vary in size, for long-fibre CFC they are not a uniformed size and can be quite large. While short-fibre the porous structure is more uniformed but are much smaller.

The porous structures do not cause any issues for general heat-treatment applications. Where they can sometimes be a problem for users would like to use CFC for oil quenching applications or in areas where there is higher than normal oxygen seepage into the hot zone.

Neftec has developed a targeted CFC Pore impregnation method for their entire PC range of CFC composites. It is specifically aimed for our PC range of C/C Composites to have higher resistance to oxidisation in high-temperature environments where oxygen maybe present.

Our Pore impregnation allows for the small pores to be filled completely. This reduction in small sores allows for far better Oxidisation resistance. It also provides better quench performance. Due to only larger pores present it makes far easier to wash after oil quenching. The larger pores do not retain the oil and water like the small pore structure.
