Wear-Cote® Plus™ CFx
 

Our newest Patented advancement is Wear-Cote® Plus™ CFx. An electroless co-deposit incorporating the best of Wear-Cote® Electroless Nickel and exclusive sub-micron particles which exhibits a lower coefficient of friction and greater wear resistance then EN/PTFE (i.e. NIFLOR™, NEDOX®) without the electroless deposit available. Extensive comparative evaluations against other coatings has proven that Wear-Cote® Plus™ CFx is the most wear resistant/lowest coefficient of friction electroless co-deposit available. Specialized equipment designs (Patents Pending) assure uniform particle co-deposition and consistent quality duplication.

A generic acronym for PTFE, a fluorocarbon compound, polytetraflourethylene, made by polymerizing tetraflourethylene. CFx is made by reacting coke with elemental flourine. CFx - containing deposits exhibit lower coefficient of friction values than EN/PTFE - containing deposits when tested by ASTM G-77 plus better wear characteristics than EN/PTFE - containing deposits when tested by G83. A comprehensive technical brochure on Wear-Cote® Plus™ CFx is available upon request. The use of Electroless Nickel CFx composite coatings is protected by U.S. Patent No. 4,830,889 with foreign Patents granted and pending. The coating is marketed under the tradename Wear-Cote® Plus™ CFx.

A spectrum of applications include Packaging/Food Processing Equipment, Glass Molding, Petro/Chem, Computers, Aerospace, Electronics, Automotive and Plastic Injection Molds.
