FOR BOTH EXCELLENT RELEASE AND SLIDING APPLICATIONS

Nyflon® is a co-deposit of electroless nickel and PTFE (Teflon©) that you can apply to all common tool steels, as well as stainless steel, copper, brass, and aluminum.

Unlike competing electroless nickel/PTFE coatings, which involve the application of PTFE to the electroless nickel layer in a secondary process, the PTFE element of Nyflon® is a component of the electroless nickel bath itself. This denser, more uniform distribution of PTFE particles within the entire thickness of the deposit ensures lubrication constancy throughout the lifetime of the application.

At standard deposits in the range of .0002/.0005″, Nyflon® is recommended for sliding applications, in which a coefficient of friction as low as .07 is achievable, and plastics-forming applications from injection molding to thermoforming, where it provides excellent release of the formed part from the tool.

Nyflon® also provides exceptional corrosion resistance due to a high-phos EN base layer and hydrophobic nature of the PTFE co-deposit. Lab testing has achieved more than 1,000 hours of B117 Salt Spray.
