Anti Scale Compounds

Billets and ingots of metal are heated to high temperatures before further processes like hot rolling and hot forging. Scaling / oxidation and decarburisation occur on these billets and ingots during heating at high temperatures. Between 1.5% up to 5% of metal is lost due to scaling at high temperatures. Apart from material loss, scaling causes a number of issues like bad surface finish due to pit marks, reduced forging die life due to impact of hard scale on die during closed die forging, and mill skid situation in hot rolling. Scales fallen in furnace damage the hearth of the furnace and also the induction heater refractory and coils. Removal of scale from the plant is an unproductive, labour intensive work. Decarburisation occuring at high temperatures leaves the metal unfit for making critical components like rails, sensitive automotive parts like leaf-springs, etc., where decarburisation needs to be maintained as low as possible.After forming, the forged, cast or rolled components need to be heat-treated. During heat treatment, scaling causes problems of pit marks, poor surface finish, non-uniform heating and increased shot-blasting / acid pickling time due to heavy scaling.Use of ESPON anti-scale protective coatings manufactured by Steel Plant Specialities LLP ensures that scaling is prevented or substantially reduced. During hot rolling of expensive grades of steel such as stainless steel and alloy steels, a 50% reduction in total scale loss on ingots or billets is ensured. This leads to substantial savings due to increased yield. Decarburisation level can be consistently controlled in hot rolling and hot forging. During heat treatment, ESPON protective anti-scale coatings have often achieved zero scaling. However, results vary depending on various factors. Substantially reduced scaling during heat treatment leads to improved surface finish, reduced shot blasting time, reduced rejections and reduced quench cracking.

ESPON-SR Anti Scale Compound is a protective coating that prevents or reduces scaling and de-carburization during heat treatment process. This anti-scale protective coating is suitable to be used in different heat treatment processes including tempering, annealing, normalizing and hardening. ESPON-SR anti-scale protective coating can be applied by brushing, spraying or dipping. Especially in operations like re-heat-treatment of fully machined parts, where there is no allowance for scaling, ESPON-SR has proven to achieve scale-free heat treatment. Use of ESPON-SR Anti Scale Coating also ensures superior surface finish of heat treated components. ESPON-SR is non-flammable and non-hazardous.

 

Benefits of ESPON-SR Anti Scale Compound:

 

  • Prevents scaling and de-carburization during heat treatment and re-heat-treatment process

  • Can be applied by brushing, spraying or dipping

  • ESPON-SR anti scale compound offered provide vital savings on capital investments as existing furnace can be used for scale free heat treatment which otherwise is not possible without highly capital-intensive controlled atmosphere furnace

  • ESPON-SR can be used to protect fully machined parts during re-heat-treatment. It helps in preventing component rejection due to pit marks formed by scaling.

  • ESPON-SR can be used in heat treatment operations ranging up to 1000 deg. C.

  • ESPON-SR anti scale compound can be easily removed post heat treatment process.

  • ESPON-SR is especially useful in operations where coating needs to be removed easily and further processes like shot-blasting or grinding are not possible.
