IMPREX PARTS PROCESSING
Our Job Shop offers quick turnaround for porosity sealing in metal castings, powdered and sintered metal parts, and electronic components. High-quality impregnation is the solution to eliminate porosity, and turn leakers into usable parts.
WHAT CAN BE IMPREXED?
Any metal castings that need to undergo drastic temperature changes, moisture, vibration, or hydrostatic, hydraulic, or pneumatic pressure can be impregnated. Imprex’s vacuum pressure impregnation systems can seal porosity in automotive parts, motors, generators, coil windings, transformers, pumps, electronic equipment, and more.
WHAT CAUSES METAL CASTING DEFECTS?
If small gas bubbles are trapped while a metal casting is still liquid, voids can form when the metal cools. These voids in the metal are called porosity, and cause leakage when the casting is pressure-tested. Imprex impregnation seals porosity and makes parts pressure-tight.
