The General Magnaplate Corporation (Linden, New Jersey, USA) is both a pioneer and a world leader in the science of surface enhancement for metals and other substrates. Whether in the harsh environments of outer-space or on factory floors across the globe, Magnaplate applied “synergistic” coatings transforming low performance, plentiful and inexpensive metal parts into corrosion-resistant, chemical-resistant, super-hard, dry-lubricated products that last longer, are more cost-efficient, and perform faster.
General Magnaplate is perhaps best known for their synergistic ‘Nedox’ and ‘Tufram’ product ranges, respectively modified Electroless Nickel and Hard Anodising based. They offer a wide range of variations through proprietary blends and polymers, each coating system aimed at producing specific performance advantages, be it low friction, wear resistance, corrosion resistance, non-stick, anti-fretting or anti-galling.
General Magnaplate services all the major industrial sectors, and is able to cite a wide range of success stories, industrial problems solved by the application of specifically tailored coatings.
