Piston rod ready for take off with TOPCOAT® and LPM®


This piston rod is ready for take off. We applied TOPCOAT®. Prepairing this piston rod with our 'standard' TOPCOAT® makes it suitable for almost all aggressive and corrosive environments.

Typical applications for his coating are:

  1. Hydraulic components, such as piston rods
  2. Plungers
  3. Components for the automotive industry
  4. Wear resistant sealing surfaces
  5. Wear resistant sleeve bearing surfaces
  6. Replacement and recoating of Ceramax

The techniques we applied are plasma spraying and LPM® (Linear Positioning Measurement)

Benefits of plasma spraying

  • Fine micro structure
  • Low porosity
  • Excellent corrosion resistance
  • High process flexibility
  • Good tensile strength
  • Versatile and comprehensive range of materials
  • High production capacity with low costs

What is LPM® (Linear Positioning Measurement)

The Griekspoor Linear Positioning Measurement system (LPM) is composed of a combination of one special sensor and a rod with a specific profile below the coating surface. There are two magnetic strength transducers in the sensor that “look” through the coating to the underlying rod profile. When the rod moves in either direction the transducer generates an incremental block signal that is processed in a counter.
