Low Coefficient of Friction Coatings

Low Coefficient of Friction Coatings

As coating specialists, Metallic Bonds provides a wide range of coatings such as our low coefficient of friction coatings. This high performance coating decreases friction and drag to allow parts and components to function at higher speeds. Faster moving parts and components translate into greater manufacturing output for you, regardless of the application.

Because the coatings include durable materials such as ceramics, carbides, and molybdenum, they serve as replacements for chrome plating and provide a much higher degree of hardness than the base metal. Pump shafts, mechanical seals, and grinder spindles are just a few examples of component parts that can benefit from low coefficient of friction coatings. Our coatings will not distort, warp, crack or render any metallurgical change to base metal. Masking can be utilized to ensure the coating is only applied where specified. Low coefficient of friction coatings, which can be ground to single digit finishes and tight tolerances, function similar to fluoropolymer coatings and are highly resistant to solvents, acids, and other corrosive elements. Typically, the Plasma Spray process is used when applying a low coefficient of friction coating.
