High Corrosion & High Temperature Resistance
Indestructible Paint’s Ipcote range of sacrificial aluminium basecoats and sealcoats are high corrosion resistant and high temperature coatings, designed for use in challenging environments such as aero engine, aircraft landing gear, power generation and marine situations.
The range has been developed and refined over a number of years. It was originally introduced at the request of Rolls-Royce Aero Engines for use on compressor blades and allied engine parts as a commercially available alternative to a proprietary range of imported US products. Subsequently, the coating range has been adopted by a large number of additional manufacturers of aero engines and industrial gas turbines, as well as being introduced as a cadmium replacement on undercarriages and fasteners.
Chrome Free Alternatives
Initially the range was purely based on inorganic technology, which by its very nature contained both trivalent and hexavalent chrome. Recent introduction of environmental and safety legislation has highlighted the use of chrome containing products. Whilst the levels of hexavalent chrome in most of the products are minimal, and in most cases below all current environmental limits, there are ongoing developments to remove all chrome compounds. We can now offer a single component chrome free coating, based on organic chemistry, and thus containing solvents, which has been tested to Rolls Royce MSRR 9253. In addition, we are testing with clients, a chrome free inorganic basecoat and sealcoat.
CFIPAL, currently being tested in the aerospace and power generation industry, has been developed as a chrome-free version of our diffused aluminide coating (IP1041) that is designed to provide protection for gas turbine hot section parts at temperatures up to 1000°C. Often used on nickel-based turbine alloy materials, the coating imparts a high temperature oxidation-resistant silicon-aluminide coating for turbine components in all areas of industrial and aero-gas turbine application

IP9183-R1 High Heat Resistant Sacrificial Aluminium Coating
MSRR 9140, OMAT 7/46B, PCS2550, ITP SM-903, LB 598, GEA50TF1 Class E, Snecma – DMR74–052
Sacrificial Aluminium Coating that is part of a range of corrosion resistant coatings designed for use in challenging environments such as aero engine, power generation and marine situations. Spray applied Ipcote is used, on turbine blades, rotors, shafts and landing gear to protect components from salt laden atmospheres, high temperature oxidation, chemicals and abrasives.
IP9184 Ipseal High Temperature Inorganic Seal
MSRR 9140, OMAT 7/168B/G, LB598, ITP SMM-903, PCS 2550, GEA50TF196 Class F
is an inorganic protective coating used as a barrier on Ipcote IP9183-R1, IP9253, PL219, Ipthin IP9356.
All of the Ipcote coatings are conductive, sacrificial coatings and inherently porous. Ipseal seals this porosity without detracting from their sacrificial properties. It also creates an electrically non-conductive barrier coat.

IP9442 Smoothcote – Smooth Surface Finish Sacrificial Aluminium Coating
Sacrificial aluminium coating providing a very smooth surface finish, necessary to reduce friction and to enhance efficiency in aero engines. IP9442 has a typical sprayed surface finish of approximately 20 micro inches thus presenting little resistance to air flow or roughness, resulting in low dirt and carbon deposit pick up. When polished, finishes of less than 10 micro inches have been achieved.

Smoothseal is an inorganic protective coating used as a barrier on Ipcote IP9183-R1, IP9253, PL219, Ipthin IP9356. Smoothseal cures to provide an ultra-smooth finish to improve dirt shedding and air flow properties. All of the Ipcote coatings are conductive, sacrificial coatings and inherently porous. Smoothseal seals this porosity without detracting from their sacrificial properties. It also creates an electrically non-conductive barrier coat.
IP9447-R1 Green Smoothseal
A light green, inorganic protective coating used as a barrier normally on Smoothcote IP9442 to give an ultra-smooth finish. Smoothseal, seals any porosity within the sacrificial aluminium coatings that it covers and creates an electrically non-conductive barrier coat.
IP1041 IPAL Diffusion Coating
MSRR1041, OMAT 7/129A
Ipal IP1041 diffused aluminide coating is designed as a protective coating for gas turbine hot section parts at temperatures up to 1000ºC. Ipal IP1041 is used for sulphidation protection in industrial and marine gas turbines. Often used on nickel based turbine alloy materials the coating imparts a high temperature oxidation resistant aluminide coating for turbine components in all areas of industrial and aero gas turbine use.
IP9356 IPThin Thin Film High Heat Resistant Sacrificial Aluminium Coating
MSRR 9356, ITP SMM-919, OMAT 7/167A, NATO STOCK 8030998646844
Sacrificial Aluminium Coating IP9356 is used on turbine blades, rotors, shafts and landing gear to protect components from salt laden atmospheres, high temperature oxidation, chemicals and abrasives.
IP9064-KHAKI 2 Pack Epoxy Khaki Sealcoat
DTD 5555; 5567, MSRR 9064, BSX 32, BSX 33 (Type A & B), HCP 355 (AEC’s Paint Procedure), Def Stan 80-161
A 2 part air drying epoxy finish for use over IP9183-R1 Ipcote. This coating is based on the binder system used to meet the specifications shown below. The cured coating is resistant to abrasion, corrosion and most aircraft operating fluids and chemical.
The Ipcote Roller is designed for use with one litre and five litre screw top Ipcote plastic bottles. Suitable for mixing non-flammable products only, such as the Ipcote Range – supplied by Indestructible Paint Limited, in the manufacturer’s original containers
The machine runs at fixed speed and is fitted with an interlocked rear hinged lid and an overload protected starter. It is fitted with a cooling fan, drawing fresh air in through the stainless steel cover and discharging through ventilation holes in the left hand side of the machine when viewed from the front.
