Metalmembranes fabricates integrated ceramic layers on titanium and aluminum metal products by a plasma electrolytic oxide (PEO) coating. Metalmembranes has gained considerable experience for the formation of these protective layers on various grades of aluminum and titanium. Also different reinforcement materials can be applied to give the porous layer additional functionality (Teflon, sol-gel etc). These products find application in aluminum gears, implants, boat parts, pumps, erosion resistant screen filters, corrosion resistant tubing etc. The properties of the layer are:
The hardness of these layer formed by PEO is superior compared to other treatment methods.
The benefits are:
