Low Friction Coatings

An Effective Friction Reduction Strategy Requires the Right Coating

It can be hard to find a coating that reduces friction, all while satisfying your application's unique requirements.

We’re your ideal partner for developing an effective friction reduction strategy that addresses all your concerns. Our deep understanding of metal surface properties lets us review your application data and recommend the best coating with a low coefficient of friction (COF).

Not only will your engineered coating prevent wear, abrasion and galling caused by friction, your parts will last longer and perform better. That means lower maintenance and repair costs — plus energy savings.
