Plating of Germany to develop a new electroless nickel, PTFE and nanodiamond composite coating. Electroless nickel-PTFE (EN-PTFE) coatings provide excellent anti-adhesive and low friction properties but are traditionally soft and wear quickly in abrasive conditions. PTFE is polytet- rafl uoroethylene, or Tefl on. By adding nanodiamond particles to the EN-PTFE coating, Carbodeon has been able to improve the abrasive wear resistance of these coatings without compromising the sliding or release properties. Nanodiamond material consists of small, spherical diamond nanoparticles that are specially treated to make them disperse in coating liquids and carry a positive electrical charge on their surfaces. In the plating process, the diamond particles behave similarly to positively charged metal ions and, together with the nickel and the PTFE material, co- deposit onto the component.


Key performance characteristics are: t Excellent resistance to adhesive and abrasive wear with a Taber Wear Index 30% better than the equivalent EN-PTFE coatings.


t Coatings can also be heat treated, bringing the Taber Wear Index down to 14 or lower.


t Coeffi cient of friction matches existing EN-PTFE systems – less than 0.2 when measured against steel counterparts.


t No increase in wear of the counterpart.


t The process contains no hexavalent chromium and so is environmentally friendly.


t Low diamond content makes these coatings affordable and easy to apply.


Target applications include automo- tive components, including engine parts, chassis parts and body mechanisms;


ONCE YOU SEE IT, YOU’RE GOING TO NEED TO TRY IT.


We challenged large and small shops around the world to try Dynamic toolpaths. The results are nothing short of amazing. Dramatically shorter cycle times, with extended tool life and less strain on machines.
