Durexium™ Melt Bolt Sensor Coating
Durex Industries is pleased to offer Durexium™, a multi-layer coating option, on all Melt Bolt Style Temperature Sensors. This multi-layer coating consists of 16 different layers of Titanium Nitride and Zirconium Nitride, which is using a cathodic arc PVD process at a temperature of 800 °F. The alternating layers produce a synergistic affect that results in a Vickers hardness of over 4400 Hv. This enhanced hardness combined with the coatings superior abrasion resistance and lubricity results in wear life of up to 12 times longer than typical non-coated sensors. This option has been shown to be especially effective when extruding or molding plastics reinforced with glass fiber or other abrasive materials. Durexium™ coating has also been proven to be effective in extremely abrasive pet food extrusion equipment resulting in drastic improvement in wear life over non-coated sensors.
