Proven Corrosion Resistance
Ceralink Inc and BASF Catalysts compared HCl corrosion resistance of various alloys. After 60 tests, Silcolloy® 1000 (Silcosteel®-CR) improved corrosion resistance of super alloys (like Hasteloy-C, Hasteloy-B, T316, C-20, Zr, Ti and Ta) by 20X.
Silcolloy® 1000 can be applied to many alloys and ceramics without significantly changing part tolerance or durability. Because Silcolloy 1000 is a silicon coating, it prevents metal leaching and corrosion in sensitive processes such as:
- Semiconductor/electronics manufacturing
- Catalyst manufacturing and testing
- Medical diagnostics
- Gas chromatography
- Materials research and UHV systems
- High purity processes and instrumentation
Silcolloy improves processes and products by extending product life, preventing product contamination, improving sample accuracy, and reducing product manufacturing and material cost.
