Our part in the green industry: electric motors
The energy transition in electric motors
- 0,12 .. 0,55 kW three-phase AC motors should at least be IE2
- 0,75 .. 1000 kW three-phase AC motors should at least be IE
Sustainably coating our electric motors
The full coating process of a Hendor electric motor takes several steps – you can read the full process here. These steps contain a total of 4 layers, consisting of an adhesion promotor, primer, basecoat, and a topcoat. The sustainability factor lies mostly in the primer. Most primers contain chromium trioxide (hexavalent chrome). Since we strive for maximum safety and sustainability, we decided to use a chromate-free and thus hexavalent chrome-free primer. Yet, the newest environmental friendly primer promotes a lesser adhesion. Therefore, we implemented a novel precoat to reach the best in class premium coating system with unseen adhesion power, and corrosion protection. With this precoat, we can use a chromate free primer while maintaining and even enhancing adhesion. The primer is a two component based epoxy with a total thickness of 20 micron. The total coating system delivers a 120 µm thick system with a PU based final finish.
As the industry progresses regarding sustainability, Hendor keeps a close eye on innovations, improvements, and initiatives in order to play its part in the matter. We are happy to have an open conversation about this topic and its influence on the surface finishing industry and/or our products. Please feel free to contact us in case you have questions.
