Blade coatings are primarily utilized in various industries to prolong blade life. These coatings enhance wear resistance by increasing hardness of cutting edge and by filling the small ridges or valleys formed during the sharpening/grinding process.
Coated slitting blades increases production in numerous industries by reducing tool breakage, tool costs and scrap rates. A wide range of eco-friendly technologies including high solids solvent borne and water-based liquid are utilized in production of blade coatings. These coatings offer excellent inter-coat and substrate adhesion as well as enhanced fill.
Growing wind power sector and increasing demand for eco-friendly coatings are major factors that drive the growth of blade coatings market. Water based blade coatings though eco-friendly require a lot of time for drying which limit their use in certain applications. Moreover it is difficult to obtain thin films in powder coating which serve as a restraint for market expansion. However, increasing demand of blade coatings from emerging economies is expected to provide potential growth opportunities for blade coatings market.
