By embedding about 25 Vol-% PTFE into a coat of electroless nickel, its excellent properties can be improved even more. This coating is significant because of its anti-adhesiveness. By minimising sliding friction, it helps with hard-to-remove injection moulded parts and when components need to be frequently assembled, removed or adjusted.
In the field of automotives, Nipflon® coating makes headrest adjustment easier.
In plastic injection moulding, many materials stick to the tools or are difficult to remove, for example through undercutting. A coat of Nipflon® avoids these problems.
