Powder and aqueous dispersion VICOTE™ Coatings.
Thermoplastic coatings that deliver durability and strength.
VICOTE™ 700 Series powder coatings are made-to-order. Powder sizes are available in a range from 10 microns up to 50 microns, as well as in various melt viscosities depending on the film thickness and level of melt flow required.
VICOTE™ 700 Series includes coarse powder grades (50 microns), which are designed for use in electrostatic coating processes. The selected grade will depend on the coating thickness required, the geometry of the part and the temperature requirements.
Victrex's durable polymer coatings deliver significant benefits to OEMs and end-users, including improved product performance and functionality, extended lifetime and reduced systems cost.
More detailed information on this thermoplastic coating can be found in the technical datasheets.
Thermoplastic coatings that are optimized for critical wear components.
VICOTE™ 800 Series liquid dispersions are used when thinner coatings are required, where difficult geometries must be coated, and in instances where enhanced properties such as release are critical to performance.
With these thermoplastic dispersion coatings, thicknesses from 25 to 50 microns are applied using conventional gravity, suction or high-volume, low-pressure (HVLP) spray coating equipment. Electrostatic Dissipative (ESD) grades of the 800 Series aqueous dispersions are available to give coaters more control over electrical dissipation to prevent build-up of an electrical charge.
VICOTE™ Coatings have been specified by leading brands in markets ranging from food processing, textile and industrial to automotive, oil and gas and electronics, as they deliver high-performance in extreme environments.

Electrostatic and spraying techniques for high-performance VICOTE™ Coatings.
VICTREX™ PEEK-based VICOTE™ thermoplastic polymer coatings can be applied using electrostatic or conventional dispersion spray techniques. VICOTE™ 700 Series powder coatings can be applied by conventional electrostatic coating equipment either in manual or automatic powder booths using negative Corona charges.
VICOTE™ 800 Series aqueous dispersions can be applied using conventional gravity, suction or high-volume, low-pressure (HVLP) spray coating equipment.
Powders can be sprayed directly onto the substrate. The powder melts to form the polymer coating, which typically has a dry film thickness (DFT) of 100 – 1000 microns (4-40 mil).
Typical applications include food processing parts, pump components, dampers, bushings, cylinder head gaskets and bearings. Read the coating procedures in the flyer below to learn more.
The formulated aqueous-based polymer coating is sprayed onto the substrate, which is subsequently heated to form a thin film, typically between 25 and 50 microns.
Dispersions allow a wider range of formulation options to enhance wear and release properties. Typical applications include cookware, irons, engine piston rings, bearing cages and moulds.
