This process combines a super-finish and metal-based plate powder spray with dry lubrication properties. It improves the substrate properties:

  • surface state: reduces the Ra
  • hardness: improves the hardness of the substrate
  • wettability: increases the wettability of hydraulic fluids
  • reduces the friction coefficient up to 0,03 dynamic (WS2/WS2)
  • reduces wear in treated parts
  • anti-corrosion: offers an anti-corrosion barrier to all oxydisable metals


General features

  • Cold application, which prevents geometric and mechanical deformation in the part
  • Does not need firing or polymerisation
  • Constant thickness of 1µm (+/- 0,5)
  • Can be applied to finished and pre-treated parts
  • Co excess thickness on angles
  • Competitive process
  • Chemically stable covering
  • Resistant to pressure

This coating is environmentally-friendly and is perceived as an alternative to hard-chromium.
