Coating Materials

Type CoatingGeneral QualitiesSuggested Applications
AluminumHighly resistant to heat, hot water and corrosive gases. Excellent heat distribution and reflection.Hot water storage tanks; vegetable oil tanks; exhaust manifolds, railway tank cars; airplane cylinder fins; sun deflection on glass; boat hulls and marine applications; capacitor cases; non-metallic surfaces; electrical circuit boards; motor bell housing; heat exchanger tubes; irrigation equipment, pattern build up; piston heads and valve seats; refinery equipment shielding and grounding on plastic radio parts; refrigerator coils and components; smoke stacks; sheet metal repair; industrial handling equipment; covering tubing welds; external diesel cylinder liners, heat distribution on cookware; towers; paint base.
BabbitExcellent bearing wearability.Large bearings (can be sprayed without molds), refrigeration pistons.
BrassMachines well, takes a good finish.Reclaiming defective or work brass casting; decorative ware and artwork; brass repair work.
BronzeExcellent wear resistance; exceptional machineability; denase coatings (especially Al, Bronze).Water wheel runners; pump casting; and impellers; bushings; valve plugs; molds motor block bearings; shafts; decorative coatings.
CopperHigh heat and electrical conductivity.Carbon brushes (for better electrical contact); electrical circuits, shielding plastic radio parts; solder connections; sprayed on glass for solder seals.
IronExcellent machining qualities.Repairing castings.
LeadGood corrosion protection fast deposits and dense coatings.X-ray shields and x-ray tube housings; protecting fan blades acid fimes balancing.
Molybdenum (Molybond)Self-bonding for steel surface preparation.Piston rings, crankshafts, pressfit applications; mixing machine blades; mandrels; ring hubs; packing glad areas; plug gauges; rear axle seals; spindles; transmission shafting and seals; aluminum castings; hard surfacing aluminum and other materials.
MonelExcellent machining qualities; highly resisttant to corrosion.Repairing castings.
NickelGood machine finishing; excellent corrosion protection.Machine elements subject to corrosion but not requiring high wearability. (Excellent for repairing defective castings hen used with Mogul Dot-Weld Equipment).
Nickel-ChromeHigh temperature applications.Undercoating for ceramic deposits improves bond. Spraying heating elements.
SteelHard finishes, good machineability.Clutch plates; shaft build-up bell housing or bearing press fits; plug type valves; sprayed on aluminum parts for better wearing qualities (available in various hardnesses).
Chrome Steel (Tufton)Bright, hard finish, highly resistant to wear.For hard wearing surfaces; packing glands, pump rods; crankshafts.
StainlessExcellent corrosion protection and superior wearability.Clutch plates, shafting build-up; crankshafts; electrical motors and generator bell housings and shafts; inking roll buildup; centrifugal and rotary pumps; roller bearings; pump couplings keyways; impellers; ring hubs; gear box parts and all surfaces; packing glands; rear axle seals; transmission bearing housing; plug type valves; Teflon undercoating. (Available in various grades.)
TinHigh purity for food applicationsProtection of dairy and food product equipment.
ZincSuperior corrosion resistance and bonding qualitiesStorage tanks; bridges, towers, laundry extractor baskets; conveyor equipment, mine cars, refrigeration equipment, building up pistons skirts; boat hulls and marine applications; capacitor cases; electrical circuits; motor bell hosing; irrigation equipment; covering tubing welds; oil well derricks; pattern buildups; pipe seal rings; covering plaster and wood refinery equipment; wind tunnels; conduit fittings; packing house, repair of welded, galvanized atmospheric corrosion resistance.
