Nickel PTFE has natural self lubricating properties, which eliminate the need for liquid lubricants on components. The coating is not only slippery; it also has low sliding wear.
Nickel PTFE – Lubricity and Wear Resistance
Lubricity plays an important part in optimising wear resistance because it inhibits contact between the mating surfaces, reducing friction between them and therefore reducing heat which may be generated.
This self lubrication reduces the wear of nickel plated components through friction, therefore creating minimal coating weight loss. Due to nickel’s self lubrication, friction between parts is significantly reduced.
We have customers in the automotive, aerospace and oil and gas industries that all use Nickel PTFE as their choice of durable, dry lubrication and anti-galling coating.
Reduce friction between components
Reduced friction between nickel plated components reduces heat generation and reduces the formation of wear particles. Reduced friction also improves efficiency.
Protect against wear with dry lubrication
The self lubricating properties of a nickel PTFE coating also prevents wear because the moving parts are kept apart.
What can nickel PTFE be used on?
- Valve seats and pump bearings
- Circuit breakers
- Mould tools
- Machine tools
- Clutches and splines
- Cylinder liners
