Nickel Boron Nitride Coating – Hardness and Lubricity
Mold Coating for Hardness and Lubricity
All of our plating services for the molding industry are excellent selections for your rubber molds and for the release of plastics. In particular, our Nickel Boron Nitride hard coating is extremely popular with our customers.
Nickel Boron Nitride is a co-deposit of hard nickel and a boron nitride matrix, which gives this coating both hardness and lubricity. This coating has an extremely low coefficient of friction and wear resistance, and it also provides a high degree of corrosion protection. We recommend using this option for any selective plating you would like to have done on precision components and mold inserts.
