- Linings and coatings containing glass flakes show superior resistance to abrasion and impact.
- Because the glass flakes are only 3-4 microns thick, there can be as many as 300 parallel overlapping glass flakes in a 2mm thick lining – thus a very tortuous path is offered to liquid of vapour penetration.
- Examination of underlying surfaces after removal of the Polyflake® coatings showed that no under-film oxide had been formed. This proves that the product is highly resistant to penetration of oxygen and other corrosive chemicals and agents.
- Coupled with the already excellent adhesion properties, the glass flakes enable the bond with steel to be maintained at temperatures as high as 170℃.
