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. Call the friendly team at us or email  for more information.
