Micro Surface Corporation is an ISO 9001:2008 certified international engineered coatings firm that began in the early 1980's located in the Midwest an hour outside of Chicago, Illinois. Micro Surface has successfully transferred technology from NASA to the commercial market and has utilized other aerospace developments and university research programs to solve industrial problems of wear, corrosion, lubrication, friction & release with coatings.
Having started the business with the WS2 (Tungsten Disulfide) Coating Technology, Micro Surface now applies over 200 coatings and surface treatments such as Teflon® (PTFE) and Powder Coating to a variety of components from the medical, plastic, automotive, food processing and chemical industries. The company also has licensees for WS2 Coating Technology in the U.K., Germany, Canada, China, Japan and Italy.
Release coatings are developed to address specific applications from Rubber molding, thermoplastic molding and extrusion, adhesives or food stuffs. Micro Surface performs spiral flow studies to determine which coatings provide the best release from tooling using the most common resins and rubber compounds in the industry. Case studies provide our customers with current data so that Bata testing is not required. FDA, NSF, USDA, and Agri Canada approved coatings are proven products that work in multiple applications and environments.
Several coatings can be used for lubrication. Dry lubricants such as Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS2) or Tungsten Disulfide (WS2) are used most often but in different applications. Tungsten Disulfide (WS2) is used where close tolerances, high heat, or clean room environments are present. The MoS2 coating is used more as a sacrificial coating where "wear in" is necessary and a thicker coating is desirable. MicroLube and our line of greases are excellent products, designed for heavy industrial applications or the food grades for processing situations. Normal wash down solutions do not remove the grease from bearing applications.
Normally wear is associated with material loss, which can deteriorate the function of the component. Abrasive wear is quite common. It can be prevented or reduced by hardening the the surfaces, providing a lubricant (either wet or dry), and preparing the surface finish (RMS) to meet the needs of the forces, stresses and environment of the application.
Corrosion is caused by many factors but the most common is the environment in which the parts function. From Salt Spray at sea to chemical attacks, coatings can provide different levels of resistance from 500 hours to 5,000 hours. The use of Hylar, Kynar, Fusion Bonded epoxies, latex or matrix plating's of nickel with Teflon, Boron, or Silicon Carbide address multiple applications from pharmaceutical, food processing, oil or gas exploration, military, to automotive. A complete family of solutions for corrosion issues.
Micro Surface provides coatings from the leading powder coat manufacturers around the global. Difficult masking projects and special effects projects are those that are easily address by our staff of professional. Our variety of guns and 5 ovens allows us to be flexible and attentive to your needs to produce a top-quality finish. Our multiple shifts, with quick turnaround times, will meet your production schedules.
A versatile offering of non-stick coatings designed for many applications which provide increased release, durability, low friction and heat resistance. Distinctive properties offered by PTFE, PFA, FEP, & ETFE coatings offer solutions for many applications.
With it's global network of licensees, Micro Surface is the global leader in Tungsten Disulfide (WS2) and for over 25 years has lead the way with its use in a variety of applications. Beyond the use of Tungsten Disulfide (WS2) as a coating, Micro Surface Corporation is pioneering in research for additives used in greases and oils. The sharing of data between licensees creates a global research effort for applications of coatings and additives for lubricants with NANO powders. From North America to Asia to Europe, Micro Surface and its partners continue to discover new product uses and solutions to lubrication, release, and wear.Tungsten Disulfide Info
