We Find the Right Coating Solutions for your Applications

When it comes to coating applications, the industry has evolved, and so have we. Our pledge is to employ environmentally friendly coating systems. We exclusively work with chromate-free paints, ensuring compliance with REACH and RoHS regulations.

This commitment reflects our dedication to advancing our technologies to meet the diverse needs of our customers, whilst meeting our commitments in helping to create a more environmentally friendly world.

Finding the Correct Coatings: How LMT Can Guide You

We understand the challenges associated with new development work, and the headache of choosing the most effective coating for your products whilst staying within your budget.

This is why we have decided to launch our coating trial, comparing our previous data with new test results, to guide you in making the most informed decision. Whether it’s a wet paint application, powder coating, PTFE or PEO coating you need to achieve your product capabilities, the variety of these coating applications is almost endless.

In collaboration with third-party experts, we will conduct a series of coating trials on our Magnesium alloys in the coming months. The trials will focus on Elektron® 21 for Aerospace, AZ31 for Military/Defense, and SoluMag® 1100 for Oil & Gas industries.

We recognise that product performance under various conditions – be it high or low temperature, humidity, altitude, or stress tests like thermal shock, salt spray, and drop tests – is crucial. Whether you aim to extend the lifespan of SoluMag®, ensure durability of AZ80 or AZ31 in military applications, or maximise the heat and corrosion resistance of Elektron® 21, we are here to help.
