Coatings and Linings Technology Range

Solvent Free Epoxy and Polyurea, Polyurethane Systems

Plural component hot applied coating is the modern, fast, efficient and reliable method for the factory application of high performance materials to critical pipelines and equipments.

Also favored as a field rehabilitation and field joint coating system because of its tough, abrasion resistance capability, pipe can be bedded and backfilled almost immediately after completing which is of vital importance to the timely completion of fabrication and rehabilitation projects. IMCO offers a complete factory and field service for both new and existing equipment and pipelines.

Typical Applications:
  • External Buried Pipelines, Pipeline Field Joints, Bends valves etc
  • Water/ Waste Water Treatment Plants, Potable Water Reservoirs.
  • Cooling Towers Basins, Building Water Proofing etc
Glassflake Reinforced Polyester / Pure Epoxy System / Vinyl Ester

Glass flake coatings and linings are widely used in situations of extreme chemical and abrasion environments. Based on polyester, vinylester or bisphenol or epoxy resins, heavily loaded with mica chip, they provide a tough and extremely durable to even the most arduous of service conditions. These linings can be both factory and field applied by IMCO qualified installers.

Typical Applications:
  • Internal Pipe Spools / Bends / Fittings / Valves
  • Internal Separator Vessels
  • Seawater Intake Lines / Absorbers / Scrubbers
  • High Chemical Resistance
Thermal Metal Spray - Zinc / Monel /Aluminum / Stainless Steel

The electric arc and flame spray application of exotic metal coatings is rapidly becoming more and more popular world-wide for the long term protection of steel surfaces against extreme marine, high temperature and corrosive chemical environments, especially for areas where extended life to first maintenance is essential

IMCO offers a complete factory and field installation service employing the most modern of techniques and equipment enabling rapid and economical production. Flame sprayed deposition represents one of the highest integrity coating systems available on the market today.

Typical Applications:
  • Splash-zone Area of Riser Pipes / Jacket legs / Conductors
  • External Pipe Spool / Valves / Fittings / Bends
  • External Steel Flare Booms
  • Bridges
  • Structural Steel Members
Features:
  • Extreme Corrosion Resistance
  • Excellent Chemical Resistance
  • High Temperature Resistance
  • Extremely Durable – Extended Service Life
Ceramic Linings and Coatings

With the near diamond hardness of alumina oxide and ceramic composites, we are now able to extend the life of processing equipment 10-15 times over the past standard technology. Ceramic lining had become the standard best practice of coal processing and related operations to maximize return on investments. Coal processing operations realize huge returns with use of our Ceramic Lining Technology.

Features of ZuperCrete:
  • Chemical bond with substrate not just a layer.
  • Single Coat Protection
  • Dual Component Spray
  • Passivation Layer
Typical of ZuperCrete:
  • Quick Dry
  • Quick Return to Service
  • Single Coat Protection
Abrasive Blasting

The team at IMCO has the ability, expertise and equipment to produce abrasive blast surface in severely corroded and pitted confined spaces and of new steel surfaces in a time bound manner. This includes but is not limited to preload tanks, mud pit tanks, void tanks and spaces, potable water tanks, diesel oil tanks and many more.

Our Capabilities
  • Garnet Blasting
  • Grit Blasting
  • Shot Blasting
  • Glass Bead Blasting
  • Wet Abrasive Blasting
Corrosion Mitigation And Management

Your production or processing facility may be relatively new, or it may have been operating for a number of years. It will have been well engineered and constructed and is doubtless generally well maintained. There will be parts of your facility however, that might be considered the “heart” of the manufacturing or processing that by the very nature of their function endure some of the most severely corrosive environments imaginable.

These are the “wear parts” of your Industry. IMCO offers services ranging from

  • Inspection
  • Condition Assessment and Evaluation
  • Specification Preparation
  • Project Management
  • Project Implementation including specialist coating lining services.
Flaker Drum Restoration

Flaker Drums are used to convert molten chemical in to solid flakes. This is achieved by forming a thin layer of molten product on the outside surface of a rotating drum and causing this to be solidified by spraying cooling water from inside surface of the drum. An adjustable scrapper continuously removes the solidified from the drum surface in flake forms.

To keep up the quality of the flakes produced, condition of the drum play an important role. IMCO carries out thermal spraying on worn out Flaker Drums to give the component an enhanced service life.

IMCO provides the following services on the above:

  • Flaker Drum Rebuilding
  • Thermal Coating
  • Onsite grinding
  • Abrasive Blasting

Advantages of Thermal Spray :

  • Cost Effective
  • Large Build ups
  • Low heat application

Economic Application for:

  • Dimensional Restoration
  • Wear Resistance
  • Heat protection
  • Corrosion protection
  • Conveyer Screw Rebuilding

    Screw conveyors are used for bulk movement of materials. They can be applied to numerous industrial or commercial applications including Paper mills, Pharmaceutical, food production, refineries, etc, for either recovery or removal purposes, or to waste flows to convey separated screened solids.

    These conveyors come in contact with materials that are toxic, abrasive and sticky.

    To keep up the quality of the material conveyed, screws in the conveyer play an important role. IMCO carries out thermal spraying on worn out screws to give the component an enhanced service life.

    IMCO provides the following services on the above:

    • Screw Rebuilding
    • Thermal Coating
    • Rebuilding of profiles for variety of screw shapes
    • Onsite grinding
    • Dynamic Balancing

    Advantages of Thermal Spray :

    • Cost Effective
    • Large Build ups
    • Low heat application

    Economic Application for:

    • Dimensional Restoration
    • Wear Resistance
    • Heat protection
    • Corrosion protection
