Aero engine gets a soft landing
TempCoat® - The Ultimate Solution
The coating of components to resolve problems or improve their performance is a regular occurrence at Impreglon. What happens less often is that we receive a jig or frame that is used to hold a component while it is machined or assembled.
Such was the case recently when an aero engine manufacturer identified a problem with a sub-assembly. The sub-assembly needed to be securely held in place while a component was fitted to it. Because of the sensitive nature of the sub-assembly, it was not possible to hard clamp it into place without first protecting its underside. The underside was not allowed to be damaged. Attempts were made to use padding, but it could not be properly secured and the padding quite easily wore through.
After a search on the internet, the client contacted Impreglon to see if we could supply a solution. Needless to say, Impreglon could and did supply the solution - TempCoat®. This is a high film build polyurethane coating available in different colors. With four different hardness levels, the coating is ideal for situations where soft grip is required. Application of TempCoat® onto the frame used to hold the sub-assembly allowed the sub-assembly to be securely held without damaging it.
