Service Detail from Omnikote Ltd.
This market sector demands specialist coatings, complicated masking techniques, resistance to aggressive environments and tight tolerances. Our prototype and specials department often develops coating solutions, examples being an elastomeric coating that enables a steel component to be ultrasonically welded to a high-tech fabric for an airbag and an impact resistant polyurethane rubber coating which is transparent to radar, for aircraft nose cones. We also apply Infra Red Reflective (IRR) coatings.
Much of our work in this area is coated in Nylon because of its inherent abrasion and impact resistance.
Automotive applications include chassis for off-road vehicles, our Nylon-LF (IMDS registered) coating that was developed specifically to solve the problem of squeaks and rattles from door latches, and wear resistant coatings on clutch release forks .
