Patent DE103 27 494 A1
SICcast® does not, as usual, merely repair worn parts by adding in the lost areas again.
Before coating, material is first applied to processing machines. This processing ensures that there is sufficient space for a homogeneous silicon carbide coating.
After coating, the parts will be processed to the finished size using diamond tools. This way, the parts have a complete and even silicon carbide coating in the original size after coating and finishing.
The service life of the wear protection layer is usually 3-8x longer than that of genuine spare parts.
Additionally, the savings for such silicon carbide coatings are between 40 – 80% as compared to the original spare parts price.
