E4 Power is proud to be an authorized
Distributor and Applicator for Polyflake Products
Developed in Europe and made from chemical resistant highly modified resins, mixed with glass flakes, Polyflake® can repair, rebuild and protect equipment to original standards at a much lower cost than replacement. Since 1987 the company has dedicated itself to the development and application of anti-corrosion materials for both new and heavily corroded parts. Polyflake® has been a leader in the corrosion restoration industry for 32 years and we take pride in our environmental impact and safety considerations in relation to our products.
Polyflake® has European and International Certifications and full Marine Liability Insurance.
Corrosion, erosion and cavitation are all too often a problem in marine enviroment. Replacing heavily corroded and damaged parts is an expensive and time consuming business. Our coating range offers a solution to almost every corrosion problem. Whether these corroded parts are, metal, concrete or plastic, we have a effective and durable solution.We offer the best solution for your coating requirements with our fully trained crew. Starting out by a site visit, evaluation, as well documentation. This will follow with a proposal for the best approach to achieve the highest quality. Due course we will document each step as well the final result. Thickness testing and Holyday (Spark) Testing are standard procedure.
How does it work?
The Polyflake® system is a controlled polymerisation process through which the resin is bonded to the original bare metal. In a three-phase process, the corroded or damaged machine parts are restored to their original specifications. The formulations can be varied to produce spray, brush or trowel grades to meet the specific needs of each application, and suit the corrosive, chemical and mechanical conditions to be encountered.
The principle of using fillers of flakes is to reduce permeability, to protect against chemicle agents and to enhance fire resistance. Polyflake® uses C-glass flakes specifically developed for their chemical resistance. These glassflakes mixed with Polyflake's high performance modified resin produce the Polyflake Coatings which will substantially protect metal and non-ferrous surfaces, even in severe corrosive environments.
Linings and coatings containing glassflakes show superior resistance to abrasion and impact. They enhance a vacuum bond with the substrate to the extent that no undercutting will occur.
Because the glassflakes are only 3-4 microns thick, there can be as many as 300 parallel overlapping glassflakes in a 2mm thick lining - thus a very tortuous path is offered to liquid of vapour penetration.
Examination of underlying surfaces after removal of the Polyflake® coatings showed that no under-film oxide had been formed. This proves that the product is highly resistant to penetration of oxygen and other corrosive chemicals and agents.
Glassflakes control the shrinkage stress normally associated with resins during their cure and reduce the co-efficient of expansion of the resin to match closely that of aluminium.
Coupled with the already excellent adhesion properties, the glassflakes enable the bond with steel to be maintained at temperatures as high as 170℃.
