Coating to make Titanium non-conductive for handheld device in work environment





January 13, 2009

To whom it may concern,

I apologize if this question has already been answered, but I am trying to find the best type of coating for titanium that will prevent most if not all conductivity. The application is for a hand held device that will be used in an industrial fabrication setting where there is a lot of welding and other processes that could cause arching/electrocution in the event of an accident. Not being a materials person myself, I am unsure as to what might adhere best, decrease conductivity best and so forth. I am considering a spray on coating, or even something that can be pulled over the piece of metal, however whatever it is must be very rugged, durable and tight fitting (i.e. rubber sleeve). I really appreciate any and all help.

Best Regards,
Mike

From your description of the risks involved, you absolutely have to refer to all applicable safety standards and get professional advice. An opinion from a chat forum is simply not enough.
