Materials of construction

Your choice of construction material is primarily determined by the :

  • operating environment
  • service life
  • budget

Our products come in various materials. Your local BAC representative can assist you in choosing the best material option for your specific project.

The basic standard material is hot-dip galvanized steel. Featuring an excellent service life, effective maintainability and proper water treatment.

start tab: Baltiplus protection

We protect hot-dip galvanized steel with an external anti-corrosive enamel paint. Fastening hardware has a zinc phosphate organic corrosion protection. Use Baltiplus corrosion protection and

  • extend the service life of the equipment
  • avoid internal paint peeling

Baltibond hybrid coatingThe patented new generation Baltibond hybrid coating is a unique product.

A special hybrid polymer is electrostatically sprayed onto each individual galvanized steel component for complete and uniform surface coverage. All these components then undergo a heat-activated thermosetting cure process which fuse-bonds the polymer powder to the galvanized steel surfaces.

Use the new generation Baltibond hybrid coating and:

  • save money
  • extend the equipment service life
  • save water by applying higher cycles of concentration
  • facilitate cleaning with the smooth surface finish
  • respect the environment

Corrosion diagramUse stainless steel for corrosion critical applications. We offer AISi 304 or 316 and recommend 316 for applications with chloride concentrations exceeding 500 ppm in the circulating water. 

This corrosion diagram offers guidance as to which levels should be taken into account.
