PTFE (Teflon®) Electroless Nickel Kit

Plates a high lubricity plate onto zincated aluminum, steel, nickel, copper, brass and bronze.

You must supply:  Distilled water, hanging wire or string, a small scale capable of weighing 1 gram, stove top or hotplate.

PTFE (Teflon®) is an excellent coating to provide low friction values on parts, especially where two parts are sliding together. It is especially useful on tools, molds, dies, cylinders, gun parts, bearings etc. and provides self lubricating properties to the parts it is applied to.

Our PTFE Electroless Nickel system plates a mid-phosphorous nickel plating, with 20-25% PTFE deposits, and plates, in many cases, twice as fast as conventional EN/PTFE processes.

The coating is not effective for corrosion resistance, so where corrosion resistance and lubricity are desired, plate the part first with our regular EN system, then plate with the PTFE system.

The system is easy to operate, requiring no complex chemistry knowledge, expensive pumps, or filtration.

Mild solution agitation is recommended during the plating cycle to keep the PTFE particles mixed. Manual movement of the part in the bath would be sufficient, or the more enterprising user could construct a simple mechanical mixer.

Simply mix the chemicals in the supplied tank, add the PTFE dispersion and heat to 190 deg F on a stove top or hot plate. Immerse your cleaned part into the solution and plate.

The system plates at a rate of 0.2-0.4 mil per hour.

Specifications:

  • Phosphorus Content - 7-9%
  • Hardness - 38 Rockwell / 54 Rockwell if heat treated at 750F for 1 hour
  • Coefficient of Friction - 0.1

Maximum Load*:                     150 sq.in.                  300 sq.in.                 450 sq.in.

Total Area of Parts

Each Kit Can Plate:                  2200 sq.in.                4400 sq.in.               6600 sq.in.

*Maximum Load: The area of parts that each bath will plate at once.

Using our simple credit system, the replenishment chemicals are added without requiring complicated titrations or chemistry procedures.

Due to the PTFE particles in the mixture, the bath will have to be disposed of and made new after approx 5 replenishments. The kits contains enough chemicals for 5 replenishments.
