Product quality, maintenance costs, and production requirements drive engineering improvements where surface technologies play an important role in steel production.

Specific areas of steel production where coatings
are used include:

  • Gas ducting system from molten metal
  • Gas injection tuyeres, lances and nozzles
  • Molten steel process- ceramic nozzles
  • Continuous casting moulds
  • Continuous casting rolls
  • Various processing rolls (i.e. bridle, deflection, and annealing furnace rolls)
