FortiPhySM UltraEndurance Coating by Phygen is Tough, Hard Surface Wear Resistance Coating Used in Wood Products Tooling Challenges

Phygen’s UltraEndurance hard surface coating, a wear resistance coating reducing premature wear and breaking of wood products tooling.The wood products industry uses a variety of processes, such as sawing (for logging and lumber production), flaking and chipping (for pulp and paper production), and precision cutting and lathe work (for veneer, plywood, and secondary wood products). Regardless of the process, metal cutting blades are subjected to difficult conditions for long hours, without the benefits of lubrication or coolant.

Depending upon the wood source, hardness and abrasiveness can vary widely from one run to the next. Scrap and recycled wood can cause variations within the same run. Blades must maintain precise cutting angles and stay sharp to prevent gouging, overheating, and breakage. UltraEndurance™ wear resistance coating from Phygen can keep cutting blades sharper and tougher, reduce maintenance, and improve quality and productivity.

High-performance FortiPhySM coatings by Phygen can reduce the problems of premature wear and breakage. FortiPhy is a tough, hard coating, with exceptionally high adhesion. It is applied using a patented process that ensures an unprecedented level of process control and coating uniformity.

FortiPhy's nanocrystalline structure is free of pores, columnar structures, and inclusions, any of which could lead to cracks, corrosion, and uneven wear. An important benefit of FortiPhy corrosion resistant coating is its coefficient of friction, which is lower than most commonly used polymers and polycarbonate coatings.
