Corrosion resistance due to surface finish
Good corrosion resistance is achieved by providing the right surface protection. The environment in which the castors or wheels are to be used is of particular relevance when selecting the right surface finish. The following environments, for example, increase the requirement for corrosion resistance:
• Oils and fats
• Heat and cold
• Steam cleaning
• Hot water with alkaline solutions
• Acids and animal fats
Passivation, electrostatic powder coating and cathodic dip painting are among the many options for surface finishing. We find the best surface protection for each set of requirements to ensure the quality and durability of your castors and wheels.
"Stainless steel castors" for strict hygiene regulations
We use stainless steel to produce castors with very good corrosion resistance. This is also how we also manufacture our “stainless steel castors”. These are used in applications where particularly strict hygiene regulations apply. Such applications include catering equipment and hospital furniture, such as hospital beds. These devices, including the castors, must be disinfected frequently, for which stainless steel is ideal.
