When the electroless nickel plating is co-deposited with PTFE Teflon, the result is an extremely hard and wear resistant coating that has an extremely low coefficient of friction. Since the Teflon is deposited along with the nickel, if wear does occur new, fresh PTFE Teflon is exposed that keeps the surface lubricated.
Create moving parts, such as slides or bearings, with improved efficiency and quieter operation
Long life lubrication, especially useful for parts that can not be changed or repaired easily
Better operation of moving parts in harsh and aggressive environments.
Self lubricated parts that can be used when standard lubrication is not advised.
