Low Friction Coatings are ideal when ‘grippy’ is bad!
When friction appears, quality problems are never far behind. Excessive friction leads to increased heat and wear. Both of which are common problems in many engineering and manufacturing applications.
Alphatek has developed a range of effective Low Friction Coatings solutions to provide dry lubrication and dramatically reduce unwanted friction. Our solutions are typically applied by thermal spray processes. Many incorporate the application of metals, ceramics or fluoroplastics to create a super-thin yet amazingly robust Low Friction barrier.
We’ve created specialist Low Friction Coatings for all kinds of industrial and manufacturing challenges. From ball valves to gas turbines for the oil and gas industry, to jet engine components for use in aerospace applications. Our world class Low Friction Coatings can be found providing vital protection wherever unwanted friction is an issue.
