This is an autocatalytic deposition process. Here the PTFE particles are co-deposited along with Nickel - Phosphorous alloy deposit. The hardness of the nickel structure is 550 HV which can be raised to 750 HV by heat treatment.
Advantages of Nickel-PTFE Coating:
Low Friction Coefficient
Self Lubricating Surface
No stick / Slip Problems
Uniform Coating Thickness
Good Corrosion Resistance
Clutch Components Pneumatic Equipment Hydraulic Cylinders Fuel System Components
