Wear causes downtime

Protecting industrial equipment like pumps, chutes, and ducts is crucial in the harsh environments experienced in power generation, steel manufacturing, mining, and other process industries. Industrial parts are often worn out by abrasion, erosion, chemical attack, corrosion, and mechanical damage. Parts that aren’t protected properly can decrease efficiency, reduce Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF), and require more frequent repair or replacement. 

Over time, the cumulative effects of machinery wear can lead to significant downtime. While individual instances of time between failure issues may only result in brief periods of downtime, the frequent occurrence of such problems can add up, causing prolonged periods of lost productivity.

LOCTITE® keeps you running

LOCTITE® wear prevention coatings address and resolve these issues. They safeguard, restore, and mend equipment exposed to challenging conditions such as impacts from large particles, rolling, sliding, or high-wear areas in wet slurry processing. By protecting your equipment, these products minimize frequent shutdowns and expensive repairs and extend its operational lifespan.

These solutions have been a proven high-quality and cost-effective solution for machinery and equipment repair and maintenance across many industries.

LOCTITE® wear prevention coatings are easily applied on surfaces of all sizes, don't require specialized labor or hazardous hot work like traditional methods, and offer the extra benefit of corrosion protection.
