An important research into an alternative, environmentally non-invasive surface cleaning process for various metals was conducted as a collaborative effort between the Jožef Stefan Institute, Dolenjske Toplice-based company FerroČrtalič, whose development has been focusing on ecological technological solutions in the field of surface treatment technology for as many as 57 years, and the Joanneum Research Institute from Austria. The aim of the research was to determine the effects of the environmentally friendly dry ice cleaning process on the surface of aluminium alloys and the resulting impact on the adhesion quality of protective coatings.
For a global fire door manufacturer which – with its existing manual surface treatment process – was unable to meet high standards in terms of coating adhesion, something which is essential…
We recently completed a new blast room for a Slovenian company specialized in the manufacture of railroad cars and other large, complex steel assemblies.
The blast room, whose dimensions are 17m × 7m × 7m, is intended for manual blasting of large welded structures (train cars), with a partial degree of operational automation with special emphasis on ecologically clean and safe work.
