Ipsen Offers Corrosion Prevention With Ivadizer
January 18, 2012
Whether your business is fasteners or aerospace components Ipsen's Ivadizer is the Ion Vapor Deposition (IVD) vacuum vessel you need. This physical vapor deposition process is used to apply pure aluminum coatings to various substrates, mainly for corrosion protection. The Ivadizer is a better, greener way to prevent corrosion than the old cadmium processes. Processes using cadmium have excellent corrosion resistance and good wear, but as we have known for some time now cadmium is toxic and can cause many unneeded problems. In recent news one manufacturing plant reported that more than 200 workers had excessive amounts of cadmium in their blood and were required to seek medical attention with recovery time lasting up to three months. Unlike cadmium, aluminum is environmentally clean, nontoxic and safe for operating personnel to handle and use. Ipsen's Ivadizer provides a safe process with all the benefits of the old cadmium process - superior corrosion resistance, excellent coating protection without loss of strength, provides ultimate substrate for paint adhesion and flexible load configurations. The base material is not affected by this process and is a pollution free process.
