PTFE (Teflon®) is an excellent coating to provide low friction values on parts, especially where two parts are sliding together. It is especially useful on tools, molds, dies, cylinders, gun parts, bearings etc. and provides self lubricating properties to the parts it is applied to.

Our PTFE Electroless Nickel system plates a mid-phosphorous nickel plating, with 20-25% PTFE deposits, and plates, in many cases, twice as fast as conventional EN/PTFE processes.

The coating is not effective for corrosion resistance, so where corrosion resistance and lubricity are desired, plate the part first with our regular EN system, then plate with the PTFE system.

The system is easy to operate, requiring no complex chemistry knowledge, expensive pumps, or filtration. The included glass tank allows heating over a hot plate or stove top, eliminating the need for any electrics.

Mild solution agitation is recommended during the plating cycle to keep the PTFE particles mixed. Manual movement of the part in the bath would be sufficient, or the more enterprising user could construct a simple mechanical mixer.

Simply mix the chemicals in the supplied tank, add the PTFE dispersion and heat to 190 deg F. Immerse your cleaned part into the solution and plate.

The system plates at a rate of 0.2-0.4 mil per hour.
