Wear Resistant Coatings

Machine Reliability and Long Lifetimes Start With Wear-Mitigating Surface Treatments

Protecting metal surfaces from conditions that lead to wear will ensure your parts perform reliably. Because part surfaces across many industries are susceptible to wear, it pays to partner with a surface treatment provider that can tailor the right coating to your application, avoiding wear before problems arise.

We engineered our surface treatments to deliver properties that keep coefficients of friction low to prevent sliding wear, protect parts from corrosion, and improve surface hardness to resist abrasion and galling. Simply bring us your application information and data, and we’ll recommend a coating capable of withstanding the various wear mechanisms that erode part reliability. The result: maximum productivity and long machine lifetimes.

Ideal Surface Treatments



Friction-lowering hard anodizing composite for high-temperature applications


  • Wear, abrasion, galling and corrosion protection
  • Hardnesses greater than 67 Rc
  • Uniform thicknesses from 0.0001 to 0.0003 inch
  • Precise reproduction of substrate surface morphologies
  • Resists most organic and inorganic compounds


Enhanced thermal spray composite coating for extended wear life.


  • Resists abrasion, corrosion and wear
  • Protects and restores metal parts
  • Creates a non-porous, moisture-proof surface
  • An EWR as low as 0.1 mg per 1,000 cycles
  • Resilient under bending loads


Electroless nickel coating provides superior protection against wear, friction and corrosion.


  • Helps less-durable metals achieve the longevity and performance of chrome and stainless steel
  • Surface hardnesses up to Rc 68
  • Eliminates stick-slip and enables easy cleanup
  • Chemical, acid and alkaline resistance


This hard anodizing surface treatment dramatically improves the surface hardness of aluminum versus other processes.


  • Protects against abrasive wear mechanisms and galling
  • Surface hardnesses between Rc 40 and Rc 65
  • Low coefficient of friction (COF)
  • Reduces stick-slip behavior and the resulting vibrations in sliding motion applications
  • Replaces more expensive substrates


Aerospace and Defense

Our surface treatments stand up to harsh military and aerospace conditions. Plasmadize and Dynaloy operate at high temperatures, while Tufram exhibits both a low COF and no outgassing. Magnagold resists wear, as well as acids, alkalis, fluxes, solder and weld spatter.
