Features about Perforated Planks You Need to Know

Currently, the use of perforated planks is very common. So, do you know what the characteristics of perforated planks are?

Perforated planks have the characteristics of slip resistance, rust resistance, and corrosion resistance. They are also aesthetically pleasing, stable, and durable. The perforated holes can be in the shape of raised chevrons, raised crosses, or circular, as shown in the diagram, and they are all CNC punched.

Perforated planks are suitable for outdoor applications in sewage treatment, water supply, power plants, and other industrial sectors. They can be used as vehicle anti-slip pedals, train steps, ladder treads, and also for machinery and indoor decorative anti-slip purposes. The scope of perforated planks operation includes perforated planks, metal mesh, river guardrails, welded structural components, stamped parts, and stainless steel anti-theft mesh fences, among others.

AGICO relies on advanced production testing equipment, standardized production processes, and strict quality management to ensure high-quality products.

The decorative patterns on the surface of perforated planks have what benefits?

The decorative patterns on the surface of the product enhance its aesthetic appeal. By adding patterns to the surface, perforated planks can be used as decorative pieces. If the surface of the product has minor scratches or small areas of indentation, they will not be very noticeable. The surface patterns can increase the strength of perforated planks and reduce surface wrinkling. The perforation methods of perforated planks are as follows: Continuous punching in one direction: This method involves stacking rectangular punching mesh dies to process long holes, cut edges, etc.

Characteristics of perforated planks:

  • The multi-layer sand control filter assembly provides efficient sand control performance by effectively blocking formation sand particles, meeting the sand control needs in downhole operations.
  • The filter holes are evenly distributed, offering high permeability and anti-plugging properties.
  • Large filtration area, low flow resistance, and high oil recovery rate.
  • Made of stainless steel with excellent corrosion resistance, it can withstand acid, alkali, and salt corrosion, making it suitable for the special requirements of oil wells. The gaps will not gradually enlarge due to corrosion.
  • The multi-layer structure is welded together, ensuring the stability of the filter holes and providing strong resistance to deformation. The outer protective casing can also be spiral welded.

Perforated planks have surface corrosion protection in the form of hot-dip galvanizing and powder coating.

Hot-dip galvanizing involves immersing the workpiece in molten zinc after degreasing, acid pickling, immersion in flux, and drying. The appearance of hot-dip galvanized perforated planks is slightly rougher than electroplated zinc, presenting a silver-white color. The production process may create water patterns and a few drips, especially at one end of the workpiece. However, the zinc coating in hot-dip galvanizing is tens of times thicker than electroplated zinc, providing stronger corrosion resistance, several times that of electroplated zinc.

Powder coating utilizes the phenomenon of corona discharge to make the powder coating adhere to the workpiece. The process is as follows: The powder coating is supplied through a powder supply system and introduced into the spray gun by compressed air. At the front end of the spray gun, high voltage generated by a high-voltage electrostatic generator causes corona discharge, creating a dense charge near it. When the powder is sprayed out of the nozzle, charged coating particles are formed. These particles are attracted to the workpiece with opposite polarity due to the static electricity. As more powder is sprayed, more charges accumulate. When a certain thickness is reached, electrostatic repulsion prevents further adhesion, resulting in a powder coating layer of a certain thickness on the entire workpiece. The workpiece is then heated to melt, level, and cure the powder, forming a hard coating film on the surface.
