We already told in a previous post on industrial maintenance that the industrial process of hot and cold rolling is the one used to shape the metal. This process itself does not have much of a mystery, since what it is about is introducing the metallic material between a pair, or more, of rollers in order to reduce it and make it more uniform. Two processes, different results Remembering some of its characteristics, we can say that the choice of one process or another depends to a large extent on the result that we need to achieve. In this sense, cold lamination, which is produced at room temperature, provides high-quality finishes, with more uniformity and shine, as well as greater resistance and elasticity. For its part, hot rolling treats the metal at very high temperatures that exceed between 0.3 and 0.5 times the melting temperature, which provides a material that is easier to work with, improving its moldability and performance, but offers less finishing. uniform as well as a more porous structure. Industrial maintenance Belzona’s polymer repair compounds and coatings for the repair and protection of installations such as roofs, concrete constructions, walls and equipment including pipes, pumps, heat exchangers, manholes and conveyors. Belzona offers polymer repair compounds and coatings for the repair and protection of installations such as roofs, concrete constructions including floors, walls, and a wide range of equipment including pipes, pumps, heat exchangers, manholes and conveyors. . Belzona’s wide range of materials are specifically designed to provide long-term erosion and corrosion protection together with excellent chemical resistance. Our low temperature cure solutions eliminate the hazards of hot work repairs, while at the same time reducing the need for equipment replacement, extending equipment life and minimizing downtime. Our metal repair compounds and coatings are suitable for other areas, including: silos cracks skylights lintels crossbars Deck loading docks fire stairs HVAC ducts Repair of damaged and worn concrete walls Worn or damaged concrete walls, chimneys and elevated surfaces can be repaired using lightweight materials, such as Belzona 4141 (Magma-Build), reducing downtime and avoiding the need for costly structural rebuilding of your facility. Leaky expansion joints can be easily repaired with materials such as Belzona 2211 (MP Hi-Build Elastomer), which provides excellent tear, impact and abrasion resistance. Water-repellent wall coatings, such as Belzona 5122 (Clear Cladding Concentrate), offer long-term protection against moisture ingress, which could lead to cracking and peeling of concrete walls, without losing the natural appearance of the surface . Environmental barrier coatings, such as Belzona 5111 (Ceramic Cladding) and Belzona 5151 (Hi-Build Cladding), are suitable for long-term protection against physical, chemical and bacterial attack and can be easily applied by brush or spray without the need for special tools. industrial maintenance Specific solutions for industrial maintenance But whatever the lamination process to which the metals are subjected and what the final product is intended for, needs can always arise, whether we are talking about the construction or reconstruction process itself or the repair of the metals, capable of adapting to the own needs depending on the size, the application temperature, the damage suffered and even the speed with which the restoration is required. That is why at Rodator we offer solutions perfectly suited to each need, with a wide range of possibilities with the quality and guarantee of Belzona. facility maintenance Coatings, sealings, restorations, anti-corrosion, friction or erosion, are some of the specific solutions for the repair and reconstruction of metals that you can find in the specific products of the Rodator catalog, because we are aware of the need to offer fast, efficient solutions. and durable to the different engineering and industrial maintenance problems, including cold and hot lamination processes.
