A reliable solution to premature bearing failure and prolongs bearing lifetimes by up to 500%, dramatically reducing shutdowns and the need for maintenance.
A simple spray application of ARMOR Bearings Coated Protection will immediately prevent contamination ingress and stop corrosion in the bearing housing and bolts as well as reducing the need for purging grease. The built-in inhibiting oils coats all surfaces and allows the shaft to rotate within the coating. This process uses a specially-designed application unit to apply the thermoplastic material. The units melt the material into a liquid which can then be sprayed on to the target substrate. The thermoplastic material is solid at normal temperatures and once applied it cools rapidly to form a tough, perfectly fitting second skin that protects the entire bearing, inside and out.
It is manufactured using a UV-resistant thermoplastic polymer that incorporates a slow-release inhibiting oil. ARMOR Bearings Coated Protection is re-usable and recyclable. The material fully encapsulates but does not bond to the substrate, so it can also be sprayed directly on to and around the bearing shaft. The inhibiting oil allows the shaft to rotate freely within the coating which prevents the build up and entry of debris and moisture into the bearing, providing unrivalled protection. The slow-release inhibiting oil prevents corrosion in the bearing casing and fixing bolts as well as lubricating the rotating shaft.
