About Sterling Impreglon Asia Pte Ltd
Impreglon Asia Pte Ltd, started by importing brush plating equipment and the chemicals for sale to perform such repairs since 1977. The company, known back then as Vanguard Pacific Far East Pte. Ltd., the owner realized that “one-off repairs services” using brush plating equipment for ship’s propulsion equipment were in greater demand than the demand for purchase of such equipment. Hence, the birth of Sterling Impreglon Asia Pte Ltd in 1988 to reflect the offering of repair services using brush plating technology. The brush plating services were offered to ship’s engines, generators, motors, winches, intermediate propeller shafts, rudder hydraulics just to name a few. Even port services like the “container stackers” used brush plating to return their extra long (25 feet) hydraulic shafts back into service. Sterling’s services expanded beyond our shores to countries worldwide encompassing industries other than the marine sector. Other industries that brush plating are used extensively are oil production, printing, paper or pulp industries, mining, power generation, high-end electronics, and ordnance. There is a wealth of experience since 1977 to the current day where Sterling brush plating has evolved from its infancy to being acknowledged worldwide by its peers.
The talk will cover the technology solution of surface repairs using metal plating techniques. A life demonstration will be conducted during the talk.
