EnP / PTFE Plating

Electroless nickel-PTFE composite coatings have several trade names including NIFLOR, ICE, APTICOTE, SURTECH, ARMOURCOTE are used in many applications which require a hard and lubricious coating.
The coating consists of a matrix consisting of Approximately 75% nickel and the remainder as a PTFE powder uniformly dispersed through the coating.
