News - EPTAFLON BLUE
 
 
EPTAFLON is a special treatment applied to our fittings, particularly useful in extreme conditions of use or in critical areas in Petrolchemical plants, Chemical environments, desalination plants, Marine and Ocean structures including Offshore platforms or undersea applications.

EPTAFLON, based on fluorocarbon and polymers, is a protective and corrosion resistant surface coating, capable to form a barrier and to resist to acids, solvents and salty fogs.
 
 
PROPERTIES
 
Raccordo EptaflonEPTAFLON has a double structure with a very high corrosion resistant effect.

EPTAFLON has been tested and appreciated in all outdoor and marine environments, in deserts and industrial plants, the barrier made by this special cover is unique.

EPTAFLON doesn't absorb water or oil, this will inhibites filtration and corrosion. It also provide a permanent lubrication over a wide temperature range.

EPTAFLON, basing on its fluorocarbon polymer components, performs both to high and low temperatures, from -200 to + 200°C.

The fluorocarbon polymer film is thin but extremely strong, perfect to avoid crevice corrosion, galvanic corrosion or pitting corrosion and it is a perfect barrier to chemical corrosion. Doesn't delaminate from the substrate even with sudden changes of temperature.
 
Can be applied on all metals, Carbon or Stainless steel, Aluminium alloy, Nickel alloy, Titanium alloy.
 
 
DURABILITY
 
More than 5000 hours of corrosion resistance. EPTAFLON has been tested by TUV RHEINLAND who aknowledges its attitude to resists against rust corrosion.

Salt spray test in Saline Fog Chamber, according to ASTM B 117 hs been performed on the full range of our products, giving evidence that with EPTAFLON it is possible to widely overcome more than 5000 hours in Salty Fog, with a rust percentage, Red or White (oxydation) quite below the prescriptions of the above mentioned normative.

Additional Hardness Tests acc. to ASTM D 3363-05 and ASTM D4060-10, have been performed by Breda Institute in Milan, with excellent results.
 
 
APPLICATION PROCESS
 
EPTAFLON, so called since there are minimum 7 separate stages to get the final product:
1. Degreasing with steam or solvents to remove all the impurity on the surface
2. Sand-Blasting, to eliminate micro-roughness of the surface and for a better adherence of protective film
3. Phosphating phase
4. Zinc application
5. Pre-treatment with a protective film which is improving anticorrosive resistance and create a solid body to accept further coatings
6. Application of Fluorocarbon polymer film, with automatic spray system, to get a constant thickness of about 30 microns, or more
7. Polymerization and curing in electric oven, at 150/200°C
