The Science Of Precision Coatings

Machined Components

Key Benefits:

  • Wear resistance, extend life of components and systems
  • Thin even deposit will not affect part tolerances, weight or balance
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Reduces galling due to micronodular surface, can run against itself with less friction
  • Applicable to nearly all metals
  • Cold process, will not affect part geometry
  • High precision, effective deposits as low as .00005”, typical range of .0001 to .0003
  • High effective temperature range
  • Improved corrosion resistance, similar to 440 SS
  • Certifiable to AMS 2438 and most customer driven specifications

From fundamental components such as shafts, gears, and bearings, to the more complex components found in automated lines, packaging machines, and specialized machinery of every type, Armoloy of Illinois can engineer a unique coating solution to extend the life of your parts.

Armoloy TDC® and XADC® provide excellent wear resistance and corrosion protection for machine tools of all geometries. Electroless Nickel and Nyflon® coatings offer even further protection from corrosion and offer moderate improvement in wear.  In the case of Nyflon®, high corrosion resistance and vastly improved lubricity are the primary benefits.

Specializing in high-precision applications, Armoloy of Illinois works within close tolerances, applying as little as .000050″ to the component surface. A cold process, the Armoloy system prevents distortion and dimensional changes from occurring in the base metal.

Both the Armoloy TDC® and XADC® coatings are ideal for working against themselves in sliding, metal-to-metal applications, reducing coefficients of friction to as low as .09 and eliminating galling.  All coatings are applicable to nearly all ferrous and nonferrous metals.

Common applications include shafts, bearings, cams, gears, rolls, seals, and specialized components for automated machinery.

The Armoloy family of coatings are specifically designed to keep machinery and equipment running longer. For increased wear life, reduced friction, protection from corrosion and galling, and many other benefits, Armoloy of Illinois provides a full range of metallic surface coatings to the manufacturing community. High precision is our specialty.

Armoloy provides industry-leading protective metallic coatings that benefit various industries, including food processing/packaging, oil/gas extraction, Aerospace, medical, and nuclear industries, to name a few. Metal surface treatments tailored to these applications must withstand extremely harsh conditions and provide added durability capable of extending the life of components and systems. Our experienced staff can help engineer the right metal finishing solution to your application.

Our proprietary metal surface treatments are fully compliant with the industry's most rigorous requirements and certifications. At less than 170ᵒF, the Armoloy metal finish process is considered a "cold process" that will not distort or anneal coated parts. The Armoloy coatings form a hard protective metallic surface with an absolute bond to the base metal that will not affect part tolerances or balance. This thin, precision coating will improve surface hardness and lubricity while dramatically increasing your coated parts' wear life. Our stringent quality requirements and onsite product testing will ensure your parts meet strict industry standards.

Armoloy offers a variety of coating solutions engineered to solve your coating needs. The Armoloy TDC/XADC coating will not flake, chip or peel from your base material ensuring a safe coating process that is food and medical application safe. Your maintenance and machinery expenses will lessen thanks to the coating's increased wear resistance leading to decreased downtime and replacement costs. Don't settle for traditional metallic plating shortcomings when you can have the Armoloy family of coatings protecting your valuable automated systems and components.
