FORTECOAT Thermal Spray powders for Glass Mould Industry

Sentes-BIR offers ForteCoat range gas atomized, self-fluxing nickel based powders with succesfull results in glass industry.

Sentes-BIR's proprietary gas-atomization process ensures satellite-free, homogeneous and consistent powders. These perfectly spherical particles increase in the flow rate through spraying system passages, with fewer disturbances due to satellites.

The chemistry and particle size of ForteCoat powders are carefully controlled to insure consistent high quality coating properties. Coating in wide range of hardness is possible, depending on the specific alloy chosen.

Fuseweld (Powder Welding) Powders

With the fusewelding (powder welding) method, metal powder is sprayed onto base metal with an oxy-acetylene torch. Deposition thicknes may vary from 0,1 to 10 mm. In glass industry, due to their superior characteristics for edges and corner building, these powders are used for manufacturing original parts and also for repair of mould parts.
