PFI Has Served the Molding Industry’s Coating Needs for 30 Years

Contracting with PFI for a permanent mold release coating means working with a team that has been serving companies like yours for over 30 years. Across this time in business, we have perfected our coating and plating processes, taken advantage of industry innovations, and have even developed proprietary mold coating solutions to meet the diverse needs of our customer base.

Offering Proprietary Mold Release Coatings like Dura Slick and Lubricoat

Two of our most popular mold release coating solutions are Dura Slick and Lubricoat, both of which are proprietary to PFI. Dura Slick is an excellent solution for injection mold release coatings and can also be used to salvage old mold components to extend their functional lifespan. Dura Slick offers a low coefficient of friction makeup and can handle higher heat environments thanks to its 1,650°f breakdown temperature, making it durable in a wide range of injection mold release environments. Our other proprietary coating is known as Lubricoat, which includes Teflon in its chemical makeup. The addition of Teflon in this Nickel-Phosphorous solution increases its lubricity and makes it ideal for aiding in the release of plastic from mold components. Dura Slick and Lubricoat may both serve well as permanent mold release coating solutions, but these proprietary options are just two long lasting solutions offered by the PFI team.

Choose Electroless Nickel Plating Specialists

If electroless nickel plating is determined to be the solution best suited for your mold release, there is no better team to contract with to handle the job than PFI. Our electroless nickel solutions offer extremely high heat and wear resistance and prevent the coated substrate from conducting electricity. In addition to its durability, our electroless nickel plating can be applied in a range of thickness that allows for flexibility. The thinnest application we can offer is 0.000025” and we can also apply electroless nickel as thick as 0.020” depending on your needs. While electroless nickel is not suited to every permanent mold release coating job, you will want to consider it as an option and discuss it with our team given its versatility.
