The solution against oxidation

While oxidation is one of the most common problems affecting metals, fortunately there are techniques and methods available to deal with this. The Corrotect® coating is one of the most effective solutions in this respect, thanks to the protection provided to the to the bearing rolling and sealing surfaces from oxidation, thanks to the application of a thin electrolytic coating.

It is also worth highlighting the prevention of corrosion in machined surfaces, chamfers and radiuses, as well as its penetration in the sealing systems, provided by the Corrotect® coating. This system protects the metal sheen and significantly increases its shelf life compared with noncoated surfaces. Furthermore, the application of Corrotect® technology allows the exchange between any same-sized bearings.

The Corrotect® coating has successfully passed the salt spray test, and has been certified with DIN EN ISO 9 227, ASTM B117. This test certifies its effectiveness against condensation, rainwater, excessively alkaline or acidic water or water containing high levels of salt.
