Quartz-Ceramic Coating for Aerospace
CCM offers a very high specification coating technology for professional application within the aviation sector. The coatings provide long term protection which can be measured in years. This special coating was developed specifically for the exacting requirements of the aviation, automotive, marine and military sectors. It is exceptionally resistant to corrosion, abrasion and temperature fluctuations and can be applied to metal, plastic, glass, powder coated and painted surfaces.
Curing can be accelerated by the application of heat or the coating can cured at ambient temperature. The high-end 9H ceramic coating forms an extremely strong bond with the surface and forms an abrasion-resistant coating with very high adhesive properties. The thin transparent coating (DFT.10 Microns) has extreme strength with a hardness level of up to 9H. Suitable for all types of aircraft, helicopters, automobiles (including classic cars), motorbikes, caravans and boats.
Our Auto and Aerospace 9H Ceramics Coating is a glass coating based on silanes. The coating can be applied as either a thick layer of approximately 10 microns on to surfaces which are not highly reflective or the coating can be applied and then buffed thus reducing the coating thickness to approximately 2 microns. This latter procedure is normally used in the auto sector. The coating is neither paint, wax nor a sealant, and cannot flake off or be washed off. The coating forms a durable (“covalent”) bond with the paint, and it can only be removed by strong abrasive forces. The coating cannot be dissolved by standard chemicals which are commonly used in the auto sector.
The coating provides a highly glossy appearance but like all surfaces abrasion will eventually impact on the coating. The useful life of the coating will depend on the amount of abrasion that the surface is subjected to.
We use the familiar “pencil hardness” to describe the hardness of a layer. The measuring range is between 6B (smoothest) and 9H (hardest). The Auto and Aerospace 9H Ceramics Coating achieves a hardness grade of *8H (drying at indoor temperature) up to 9H (heat drying).
