There are so many different properties involved in nickel coatings that it is important to provide all of the information you possibly can to the expert you are working with in order to determine which is best for your application. You may discover that they recommend either Teflon or nickel alone or either of these two materials combined with something else. Only someone who works in this field every day can give you the best answer.

One modern coating is an electroless nickel plating that has 25 percent Teflon included in it. This particular layer is known for its resistance to corrosion and wear, as well as its adhesion and dry lubrication properties. It also has fantastic release properties, will not react with ethanol and can be used in numerous applications. There is some overlap in the industries in which these two types of coatings are used, including automotive, aerospace, electronics, chemical, and oil and gas industries.
