Electroless Nickel with Teflon

Electroless nickel-PTFE is a nickel-phosphorous-polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) co-deposit on metal substrates. The process yields a surface with the engineering properties of nickel and the additional lubricity of PTFE.

Key Properties for electroless nickel PTFE:

  • Corrosion Resistance
  • Wear Resistance
  • Uniform Deposit
  • Lubrication
  • Low Friction
  • Safer in electronics where conventional lubricants could be damaging


Benefits of Electroless Nickel Plating with PTFE

The consistent distribution of PTFE particles and EN provides a continuously renewing source of PTFE during normal wear, giving this powerful material a number of engineering benefits, including:

  • Improved release qualities in molding operations, eliminating the need for mold release sprays, and extending the lifespan of the mold itself
  • Reduced noise and lengthened lifespan for cutting tools and dies
  • Electroless Nickel plating with PTFE is dark gray in appearance, making it an appropriate, non-reflective coating option for military applications

Our PTFE/Electroless Nickel Composites can be applied over a variety of substrates, including stainless steel, copper, aluminum, or brass.

At TMF we offer electroless nickel with Teflon to:
