As a licensee of the patented ThermadepSM process, Egyptian Coatings is proud to offer this one-step, water-based coating process to the heat treating industry. ThermadepSM is specifically well suited for many heat treated products such as agricultural equipment and springs. Easy to use, the process provides a consistent finish and is available in a variety of colors.
Dip a heated part (from 350° F to 1,200° F) into a bath of water-based polymer solution. After 5 to 50 seconds, remove the part from the bath and air dry it or bake it dry. There's no rinsing or additional steps needed. Parts coated with the ThermadepSM process are ready for immediate processing or shipping.
Because it's water-based, the ThermadepSM process has low VOCs or is VOC-free. This one-step process replaces the environmentally questionable procedures of oiling, painting and plating. By significantly reducing the use of hazardous materials, the workplace is safer for all employees.
ThermadepSM can cut expenses by eliminating the need to pretreat some parts before processing. Additionally, labor costs are reduced because painting, cleaning and additional handling are no longer necessary. These savings alone offset the low capital investment in the ThermadepSM process.
Preferred by one of the nation's largest manufacturers of agricultural equipment, the ThermadepSM process is gaining acceptance everywhere. It is ideal for protecting castings, forgings and other heat treated products requiring short-term protection. Egyptian Coatings also has developed ThermadepSM processes that are long lasting and highly competitive with zinc platings, black oxides and many other industrial coatings.
