With the broadest range of engineered coatings anywhere, we can solve all of your most challenging friction, wear, contamination and release problems.

Featured Applications



Industrial

Our surface-enhancement coatings impart corrosion protection, chemical resistance, super-hardness and dry lubrication to a variety of industrial machines and components.



Food Processing

From extruders to dies to knives, our USDA- and FDA-compliant engineered coatings can eliminate food adhesion, wear and lubricants, which helps keep your food processing equipment running clean.



Packaging

By protecting moving machine components from wear and providing release properties where needed, engineered coatings can drastically reduce packaging machine downtime and increase yields.



Oil and Gas

Our engineered coatings have proven themselves in the most demanding downhole applications, protecting oil and gas tooling from galling, abrasion, impact and corrosion.


Use Friction Calculation Tools

Online Friction Calculator

If you need coefficient of friction values for your engineering calculations, General Magnaplate's Friction Calculator web application can help. The application provides static and dynamic coefficients of friction (COF) for more than 200 pairings of commonly used materials and engineered coatings.

Choose Surface Treatments Early To Avoid Future Problems

Surface Treatement
Too often the coating of parts is an afterthought for design engineers. Rather than being a part of the discussion in the early stages of design, designers try to solve problems with coatings at the point of manufacturing—or even after manufacturing.

Prevent a Hot Mess: How Our CS-1331 Coatings Wipe Away PVC Residue

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is known for its versatility, but you don’t want to get it on your metal parts. This widely used plastic is highly abrasive and, if it builds up on machine surfaces, can cause wear. That’s why it’s important to be vigilant about preventing residue from forming on machine parts that make contact with PVC plastic. To mitigate the effects of PVC residue, you can look for a coating with stick-release properties. However, it can be hard to find a surface treatment that releases PVC effectively at the high temperatures that cause PVC sticking.
