Electroless nickel PTFE is a special blended coating to protect metal components. After applying the coating, components will gain a tough, low-friction surface. This will extend the life of components and protect them from harsh conditions.

Electroless Nickel PTFE Features

Electroless nickel plating is unique because electrical current is not used in the process. Nickel ions are reduced in a chemical agent to make this possible. Electroless nickel deposits are protective and uniform in thickness.

PTFE is a fluorocarbon coating that will optimize equipment performance. PTFE reduces downtime and also extends lubrication of parts. When you combine electroless nickel plating with PTFE, you can protect any component with a coating that is durable and beneficial.

Electroless nickel PTFE protects components from solvents, varying temperatures, and lubricants that do no work on equipment. The coating formula is typically used for valves, aluminum cylinders and pistons, carburetor components, pump rotors, and mold cores. Electroless nickel PTFE features a self-lubricating and low-friction surface, good wear and corrosion resistance, and uniform thickness of coating.
