Our Electroless Nickel Plating with Teflon for Military, Aerospace & More


One of the Cadillac coatings offered by Progress For Industry, Inc. is Lubricoat, an Electroless Nickel with Teflon plating selection. This chemical makeup of nickel, phosphorous, Teflon, and lubricity-inducing polymers, aid in the release of plastic from the mold component making it a favorite in the molding industry. Also, because of the presence of phosphorous and nickel, this industrial plating is excellent for corrosion protection. Electroless Nickel Teflon has a low coefficient of friction and a breakdown temperature of 650°F.

You can find a number of applications for electroless nickel plating with Teflon. Primarily, it can be used for the military, aerospace, and oil & gas industries due to its low coefficient of friction and high-temperature breakdown of 650°F. It also has such a high corrosion resistance to extend the life of your components.
