Ideal for magnesium alloys, Magnadize is a proprietary coating that uses supplementary polymers or dry film lubricants to protect against wear and prevent outgassing. Depending on the application, we can modify Magnadize surface treatments with supplementary polymers or dry film lubricants to provide corrosion resistance, lubricity and friction for both the application and for the magnesium alloy being used.
Magnadize surpasses other current methods of magnesium treatment for preventing oxidation and galling, and has an exceptionally low coefficient of friction (COF). Thanks to its wide operating temperature range, Magnadize is effective in harsh vacuum and low-temperature conditions in space. It is also well-suited for industrial applications, such as frames and housings, gearboxes, wheels, compressor components, air-operated tools and parts with weight or inertia constraints.
Magnadize out-rivals other common industry coatings like magnesium anodizing or HAE anodizing.
