IPCOTE

The Ipcote range was originally introduced at the request of Rolls-Royce Aero Engines for use as a high corrosion resistant, high temperature resistant coating for use on compressor blades and allied engine parts as a commercially available alternative to a proprietary range of imported US products. Subsequently, the coating range has been adopted by a large number of additional manufacturers of aero engines and industrial gas turbines, as well as being introduced as a cadmium replacement on undercarriages and fasteners.

Initially the range was purely based on inorganic technology, which by their very nature contained both trivalent and hexavalent chrome.Recent introduction of environmental and safety legislation has highlighted the use of chrome containing products. Whilst the levels of hexavalent chrome in most of the products are minimal, in most cases below all current environmental limits, there are ongoing developments to remove all chrome compounds. We can now offer a single component chrome free coating, based on organic chemistry, and thus containing solvents, which has been tested to Rolls-Royce MSRR 9253. In addition we are testing with clients, a chrome free inorganic basecoat.
