New Finish For JD Neuhaus Versatile Hoist Range Is Environment Optimised

J D Neuhaus (JDN) is implementing a new Hydro Coating on its industry-leading hoist range. The coating not only enhances quality and appearance, but is far more environmentally friendly.

JDN takes its corporate and social responsibilities extremely seriously, and moving from a standard hammer finish to the Hydro Coating will contribute to sustainable protection of the environment. In fact, the new Hydro Coating features a percentage of organic solvents that is less than 3%, which is significantly more environmentally-friendly than the former hammer finish. In addition, the coating is silicone-free, which means no wetting failures, an important consideration for automotive or coating plants.

Further benefits of the Hydro Coating include optimised adhesion, high resistance to corrosion and oil, and the potential to be diluted with water if required. It offers excellent surface quality, even when refitting, and complies fully with the VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) Directive.

JDN’s lifting equipment is designed to be used in the world’s toughest operating conditions, a fact supported by the company’s mantra of ‘engineered for extremes’. In sectors such as mining, offshore, energy, chemical and construction, safety is the number one priority. From an equipment perspective, this means reliability and robust manufacture, as the margins for failure are typically zero, particularly in long-lift and/or repetitive cycling applications.

In addition, the hoists are rated for use in explosion and hazardous dust-laden areas up to ATEX Zone 2, with even higher classifications available upon request. This means that JDN equipment will not generate any sparks or electrostatic discharge.

JDN hoists are fully functionality at all times, regardless of the presence of contaminants such as dust, dirt, heat, cold or seawater. Each component is actually manufactured to a level beyond its standard specification and rigorously tested to ensure that both performance and quality are maximised. The hoists are suitable for use in a wide variety of industries, from automotive, shipbuilding and steelmaking, through to food, glass, leather, printing and papermaking.
