General Engineering

The COATEC product portfolio “General Engineering” covers all products and coating systems for a multitude of industries.

COATEC is a supplier to many industries, whereby the coating requirements are just as varied as the industries themselves and the product portfolio “General Engineering” looks after the complete range of thermally sprayed materials.

In addition to coating new parts with special functional surfaces, component repairs is also an important activity. Besides refurbishing the components, coating them considerably prolongs their durability compared with uncoated components and furthermore provides them with high-quality enhancement.


  • Repair or dimensional correction of worn bearing seats
  • Repair of worn shafts, rollers, pistons, etc.

On the other hand, when coating new parts, the main objective is often functionalization of the base material. Apart from wear protection, the functions of a thermally sprayed coating may also for instance be to create electrical properties (electricity isolating or conducting).

Thermal spraying enables components made from the widest variety of materials to be coated so that the surface is prepared for the specific requirements of the customer such as guarding against wear, fretting corrosion, erosion, cavitation, and corrosion, or scaling and thermal shock to improve gliding performance, surface hardening/ductility, wettability, or reflection/absorption. Because of the wide variety of materials, there are hardly any limits to the functional surfaces available.

We would be pleased to develop with you a solution for your specific problems or requirements.

Typical components that these days have the widest variety of functional surfaces:

  • Hydraulic cylinder piston rods
  • Slide rings
  • Seal rings
  • Shaft sleeves
  • Sealing faces
  • Galettes
  • Shafts
  • Pipes
  • Insulating washers
  • Rollers
  • Ball bearings
  • Pump parts
  • Slide valves, etc.
