REITZ corrosion protection variants offer the highest levels of hygiene and durability. We supply a broad spectrum of effective corrosion protection measures which have proven their reliability under practical conditions and are tailored exactly to meet your application specifications.

PAINT AND SURFACE COATING

Primer, intermediate and top coats
A paint finish is a simple but well-proven form of corrosion protection. All RAL colours and a variety of paint systems are available.

Chrome-plated, nickel-plated, galvanised design
Galvanising with corrosion-resistant layers provides components with reliable protection. There are sound reasons for choosing high-performance chrome, nickel or zinc-based protection, depending on the application and requirement involved. 

RUBBER AND SPECIAL COATING

Rubber and special coating with Halar® and Säkaphen®
Halar® is a high-performance thermoplastic fluoroplastic which is highly resistant to chemicals and provides excellent corrosion protection and thermal properties. Halar® is abrasion resistant, has excellent anti-adhesion properties, a smooth, non-porous surface and contains no solvents. Stove enamel finishes from Säkaphen® offer high-end corrosion protection against aggressive media. Säkaphen® guarantees excellent protection against strong acids and alkaline media, particularly at high temperatures.

CHEMICAL SURFACE TREATMENT

The main purpose of chemical treatment is to achieve a high surface quality.

Pickling
Pickling to protect and clean the surface rigorously removes oxides, particularly heat tinting (e.g. in the vicinity of welds), other discolouring and corrosion spots.

Passivating
In the case of steel and many other metals, it may be practical under certain circumstances not to leave development of a protective passivation layer to chance. Creation of the passivation layer is accelerated in a targeted manner through the process.

Electropolishing
Employing an external power source, this electrochemical removal procedure reduces microroughness and improves the smoothness of the metal. As a result, dirt and other residues find it more difficult to stick and the component surfaces can be cleaned more effectively.

MECHANICAL SURFACE TREATMENT

When combined with chemical surface treatments, mechanical processes achieve the required polish and sheen. 

Vibratory grinding
Impellers and surfaces in contact with the product are initially pickled and passivated in many cases before achieving an optimum surface quality through vibratory grinding. The workpiece is ground with abrasive media in a vibration container during this, achieving a precise removal of material.

Sandblasting and glass bead blasting
Similar to vibratory grinding, sandblasting and glass bead blasting are employed to achieve maximum homogeneity of surfaces and the side effect of material solidification. Uniform deburring, oil removal, degreasing, descaling, smoothing, polishing, cleaning, rounding of corners and grinding are the corrosion-reducing options this treatment offers.
