A Co-Deposit of Electroless Nickel and PTFE Coating for both Excellent Release and Sliding Applications
Nyflon® is a co-deposit of electroless Nickel and PTFE (Teflon©) that can be applied to all common tool steels and stainless steel, copper, brass, and aluminum.
While some competitive coatings apply only a top coat of PTFE that is quickly worn, the Nyflon® coating contains evenly dispersed nanoparticles of PTFE throughout the coating matrix. The result is improved lubrication throughout the coating life while also benefiting from the increased hardness and corrosion resistance of the nickel co-deposit.
Nyflon®, when applied at .0003”-.0005” has a co-efficient of friction as low as .07, so is excellent for release applications such as plastic molding and thermo forming. These release qualities make it a go-to coating for packaging and blister-pack molding.
Nyflon® also provides exceptional corrosion resistance due to a high-phos EN base layer and hydrophobic nature of the PTFE co-deposit. Over 1,000 hours of salt spray testing per ASTM B117 is achievable.
