GENERAL CHARACTERISTICS

SILOX is a thin coating based on amorphous quartz which allows coating the part with a layer with chemical-physical characteristics similar to those of glass. The advantages are high transparency (99%), total chemical inertia and good scratch resistance (800 HV hardness). The deposit thicknesses range from a few nanometres up to 5 μm thus making it possible to coat parts with very tight tolerances.

MATERIALS SUBJECT TO COATING

Materials subject to coating are:

  • Aluminium and its alloys
  • Titanium and its alloys
  • Steels
  • Brass
  • Bronze
  • Glass
  • Ceramic materials
  • Elastomers

APPLICATIONS

Currently, the main fields of application are in the optical sector for resistance to opacification and UV, and the household sector for its stain-resistant and scratch-resistant properties which enable it to be used in the field of industrial electromechanics.
The total non-toxicity and the complete absence of heavy metals or solvents make it suitable for application in any sector.
