The Duraslik™ coating for cartridge heaters, developed by Durex Industries, allows any cartridge heater to be removed with relative ease after long term use.
The patented non-stick coating acts as a corrosion inhibitor and solid lubricant when the heater is inserted into a drilled hole and energized.
The Duraslik™ coating is bonded directly to the heater sheath for ease of handling. This coating acts as a solid lubricant once the heater has been energized in service. There is no need for additional release agents to be applied to the heater sheath prior to insertion. In addition, the Duraslik™ coating inhibits corrosion and facilitates an even heat transfer in the application, effectively lengthening the service life of the heater itself. The coating is available on all standard and metric sheath sizes. All Durex cartridge heaters are high density swaged units and are manufactured to customer specifications.
