R.T.U. slurries can be incorporated into high-temperature coating masking systems (R.T.U. M-7/B-4, M-10/B-4, M-107/B-4) where diffusion coating processes are above 1500°F or incorporated into low-temperature coating masking system (R.T.U. M8/B-4) where diffusion coating processes are below 1500°F.
Maskant materials are commonly used in the aerospace, automotive, and electronics manufacturing industries to act as a barrier and protect surfaces from paint, plating or etching during processing.
Maskants come in various forms, including wax, grease, and liquid, and are chosen based on the surface and process.
For example, we offer masking powder products for low-temperature coating of nickel-based superalloy parts, as well as products for high-temperature coating of engines.
After processing, the maskant material is removed – most commonly with a maskant stripper – revealing the unblemished finished product.
We offer maskant materials for a range of applications, including:
- High-temperature diffusion coating processes above 1500°F (815°C)
- Low-temperature diffusion coating processes below 1,500°F (815°C)
- Pure CVD coating processes
- Aluminum alloy diffusion coating processes
- Maskant slurry making
- Maskant slurry dilution
- Maskant stripping
