MBI COATINGS, INC. – TRACTEC COATINGS

MBI Coatings applies engineered coatings designed for traction & grip using advanced HVOF, Plasma-spray, Arc spray, Powder and Wire flame sprayed coatings. Such coatings are used for mechanical grip type applications, non-slip and to maintain consistent feed such as on drive rollers and feed rollers.

We can produce a wide variety of textures according to your needs. Unlike glue-on sand-paper and other temporary methods, MBI’s Tractec coatings are considered permanent. The gripping surface we produce is extremely tough and long lasting. The coatings are repeatable, consistent and can be re-applied once they wear out after prolonged use.

Your material, being plastic, paper, fabric or foam, are transported consistently with fewer interruptions due to web breaks and poor web traction. Therefore, your maintenance is decreased and shut downs are averted.
Extreme Wear Resistance: Tractec is a long-term solution for applications that see serious abuse and wear. Unlike wraps and liners, Trac-Tec fuses to substrates, giving it superior adhesion, hardness, wear and abrasion resistance.
Adjustable Traction: TracTec has the ability to customized based on traction needs. For more aggressive traction, coating thickness is increased to “grip” parts, better (such as on a drive roll). If low friction is needed, TracTec is applied lighter and with materials that have smooth “peaks” so as to not interfere with running products.

TYPICAL PROPERTIES

  • Materials Used: Tungsten carbide, chrome  carbide, titanium carbide, hard stainless steel,  amorphous alloy, ceramics and more…
  • Hardness: Non-Marring to beyond 75Rc hardness
  • Bond Strength: Very high, Over 10,000psi (will not chip or flake)
  • Thickness: From  .003”  –  .100” build-up
  • Texture: Customizable; can be varied from fine Ra finish to 80 grit sand paper equivalence.  Can also be adjusted for either rounded “peaks” or a sharp, rough feel.
