Epoxy Coated Strand with Resin Coating Layer
Epoxy coated strand is a new product developed from common PC strand. The surface of the common PC strand commonly dose not have any coating layer. While the epoxy coated strand's surface has a layer of epoxy resin which will combine with the steel during stressing without cracking or losing adhesion. In the coating process, it will not pollute the surrounding environment and the wire tensile strength is without losing. At the same time, the coating layer is able to resist physical wearing and chemical corrosion. Now, the technology of coating type and filling type has already been matured. Our new technology can promote the coat thickness and evenness. In addition, we have very strict standard for every working procedure. Therefore, the quality of our products is guaranteed and we can produce steel strands according to the customers' specific requirements.
Resin coating layer with high bonding force, good chemical resistance, good electrical insulation, good stability makes the strand have better performance in practical using.
Epoxy coated strand with a coating layer is convenient for construction and maintenance.
Epoxy coated strand is widely used in external cables, PC structures subject to salt damage, heavy duty corrosion resistant anchors, materials subject to long-term exposure, tension materials on stay cable bridge, etc.
Epoxy coated strand with high corrosion resistance has a wide application. Its strand diameter changes from 6.35 mm to 15.25 mm and coated layer thickness changes from 0.38 mm to 1.15 mm. All can be produced according to your specific requirements.
