AURA Controls develops corrosion-resistant coating

March 10, 2015 – AURA Controls developed a corrosion-resistant coating that provides significantly better corrosive resistance and chemical inertness than that provided by traditional metals such as stainless steel and exotic alloys. Produced by bonding a chemical blend including carbon and silicon to the crystal structure of stainless steel, the material becomes part of the base metal, unlike traditional performance coatings and passivation processes.

The extremely flexible, chemically inert, and wear-resistant material provides more than 200 times the corrosion resistance of stainless steel and four times that of exotic alloys in both highly caustic and acidic applications. The fully inert surface will not absorb moisture or active compounds, reducing cycle times and improving accuracy in critical applications in the oil/gas, petrochemical, power generation, biotech, pharmaceutical, and aerospace industries.

Available in AURA’s line of pressure and flow control equipment, LumiShield increases component longevity and reduces product contamination in both acidic and caustic systems up to 5500 psig and over 400°F. Each LumiShield product is assembled in a Class 100 cleanroom, 100% helium leak-checked, and fully flow- and function-tested to ensure the highest levels of accuracy and durability available.
