Nickel PTFE Self Lubricating Corrosion Resistant Coating

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
  • Connectors
  • Fasteners
  • Circuit breakers
  • Mould tools
  • Machine tools
  • Spindles
  • Clutches and splines
  • Cylinder liners
  • Medical moulds

Lubrication and Corrosion Resistance for Sliding Wear Applications

us’s unique plating solution, Ni-PTFE, is the latest technology in self lubricating coatings, combining the hardness of electroless nickel with the natural lubricating properties of Polytetrafluoreothylene (PTFE).

Ni-PTFE is a nickel coating with a slippery, low friction surface, with low sliding wear.

This highly advanced plating process is commonly used in a variety of industries where its properties are particularly useful and valuable.

 

Ni-PTFE is often used in the following industries:

  • Automotive
  • Machinery
  • Engineering
  • Mold and Die

Ni-PTFE is a great choice for sliding wear applications because of its self lubricating properties. Ni-PTFE is perfect in instances where conventional lubricants would be harmful for the components involved. For example, it can be used for components in electronic equipment, and other types of equipment where a conventional lubricant would be harmful.

Benefits of Ni-PTFE

  • Low friction and wear due to its self lubricating properties.
  • Hard surface with high load-carrying capacity.
  • Allows for even coverage of a component with better control of the thickness levels of the coating.
  • Better anti-galling and anti-seizure.
  • Smoother, more attractive surface.

If you are in need of a metal coating that combines hardness with lubricity, Ni-PTFE is the perfect solution.
