Nedox

Enhances the performance of common metal alloys

By offering superior protection against wear, friction and corrosion, Nedox® can help less durable metals achieve the longevity and performance of chrome and stainless steel.

Nedox exceeds the physical properties of common industry coatings such as nickel plating, electroless nickel plating, sulfamate nickel, co-dep electroless nickel and polymer impregnated electroless nickel.

Nedox is well-known for its ability to eliminate stick-slip and galling in a wide variety of applications. It also performs well in chemically corrosive environments—including washdown and uranium-enrichment applications with UF6 exposure. Nedox is also highly resistant to salt spray.
