Coping with contamination -
with the right Coating system

Optimum protection for every application

Coatings and their fields of application

NORD drive solutions are prepared for coating for individual installation by the customer. Our coating systems have been successfully tested by an independent laboratory - including:

  • Cross cut test according to DIN EN ISO 2409 to test the adhesion of the paint system.
  • Salt spray test according to DIN EN ISO 9227 to test corrosion resistance.
  • Evaluation of degree of delamination according to DIN EN ISO 4628-8.

Special colours according to RAL, BS, Munsell, Pantone or even according to colour samples can be supplied at extra charge within 5working days.

Tested paint systems for special requirements

The paint systems used by NORD uses are resistant to chemicals.They have been tested for their resistance to all important substances which could have a negative environmental effect. After full drying of the paint system, NORD paints are suitable for foodstuffs and fulfil the NSF / ANSI 51-2009e test criteria. No furthertop coats are required.Antibacterial paints are possible for all paint systems. For this, a final clear lacquer containing antimicrobial silver ion particles (layer thickness approx. 40μm) is applied, which does not affect the color.

Powder coating for decentralized drive technology

Because of their extremely robust and durable properties, powder coatings are very suitable for the electrical industry. Surfaces which are treated in this way are resistant to impact, scratches and wear. They are resistant to weather and chemicals and are even more robust than conventional NORD paints. In the electrical industry, the anti-static properties of electrically conducting powder paints are relevant for the prevention of static charging of the drive units. Potential interference is eliminated and down time probability is minimized. The subject of environmental protection is becoming increasingly important in the field of surface coatings. Powder coating does not use solvents, but rather dry powder, which is melted onto the work-piece in a kiln, or oven.
