The ultimate low-friction, non-stick coating
Apticote 480A, our brand new ultra low-friction coating solution, offers performance enhancements across engineering & manufacturing applications.
The revolutionary nickel-polymer solution has been developed at the Poeton research & development centre to enable engineers to drive constant improvements and push the limits of conventional materials.
The key features of Apticote 480A
SUPERIOR LOW FRICTION
A dynamic co-efficient of friction of only 0.05 – 90% lower than standard electroless nickel and will remain stable and reliable over time.
The polymer infused surface prevents substances including glue and adhesives from sticking to the surface and slowing production.
ABRASIVE WEAR RESISTANCE
The wear rate of Apticote 480A is 85% lower than a standard electroless nickel coating and will help increase service life.
Apticote 480A will resist salt spray testing for up to 1500 hours before the first signs of corrosion are seen.
15-50 MICRONS THICK
Varying thicknesses will optimise the final coating to different applications, from achieving the best low friction to increased corrosion protection.
Suitable for use in direct food contact so you don’t have to worry about the safety of consumers.
