CAP Technologies Cleaning Demo
CAP Technologies offers a patented, environmentally friendly, unique single process for the surface texturing, cleaning, and/or coating of metals. Electro Plasma Technology (EPT) process allows CAP Technologies to process materials of different sizes and shapes, while retaining the properties of the base metal, at a price comparable to existing processes. Our process allows multiple strands of wire/rod to be processed at the same time, while greatly reducing corrosive properties. The EPT process of depositing coatings produces results significantly better than coatings deposited using conventional methods.
Real World Example of CAP’s Corrosion Protection:
As an example of the superior corrosion resistance properties EPT applied coatings have in real world conditions, take a look at the spool of wire above. This wire was manufactured in early August of 2015 from 1080C 5.5mm (7/32″) rod. When CAP processed the rod, about 8 µm of Zn was applied to it. The rod was then drawn down to 2.04mm (.080″), resulting in the coating thickness to be reduced proportionately to about 2.5 µm. The wire was kept in a non-climate-controlled facility where the temperatures varied from 30-110° F, with humidity levels in excess of 90% at many times.
On August 13th, 2016 CAP Technologies LLC and most of the surrounding area were affected by the devastating flooding that took place in Louisiana. The city of Denham Springs, where CAP resides, took over 27″ of rain in a 36 hour period. The Amite River overflowed it’s banks and CAP took on nearly 4′ of water as a result. This spool of wire was well below the water level and stayed submerged for about 3 days until the water receded.
The spool has been in CAP’s warehouse since the flood (4 months at the time this was written), and still exhibits no sign of rust. To sum it up, this EPT applied Zn coating from CAP that is 2.5µm thick at the wire-size protected this wire from rust in a wide range of temperatures and humidity for a year, then was submerged completely in flood water for 3 days, then left in the same varying conditions of the warehouse for 4 months, and still shows no sign of rusting. Imagine what our coating can do for you!
