ITSC 2018 Review

10 May 2018

Spreading the word about PTFE Group masking materials - the best in the industry!

PTFE Group of Companies recently exhibited at ASM's ITSC 2018, the premier exposition for Thermal Spray professionals. The 2018 show was held May 7 - 9 in Orlando, FL at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center. Scott Glenn (Director of Sales - North America), Tim Connelly (Global Adhesive Product Manager), Sean Morin (Manager of Strategic and Key Accounts - US), and Lucas Pruch (Inside Sales - Thermal Spray Masking) were in the booth showing visitors how to reduce masking times by 50% or better by using our 170-10s Green Thermal Spray Masking Tape and other PTFE Group masking materials.

Particular interest was shown towards HVMT Orange masking tape which has proven to be the best tape available for masking against gas fuelled HVOF - and can also be used as a secondary masking material for liquid fuelled HVOF. The team heard positive feedback on the conformability of the tape and it's resistance to the harsh temperature and abrasion of HVOF coating systems. Visitors were also interested in learning about pre-cut profiles and engineered kits that not only reduce masking time on repetitive part profiles and multi-part engine components, but also significantly improve safety by eliminating the need to cut profile shapes by hand. 

If you missed seeing us in Orlando last week and want to learn more about improving masking efficiency and reducing time and costs, contact any member of our team.
