Wear-resistant, anti-adhesive and anti-static surfaces
Tfe-Lok® is a patented process which results in an extremely durable, wear-resistant, antistatic surface. Our electrochemical-thermal treatments allows us to securely fasten different materials into the prepared surface, a so - called SNAP-FASTENER EFFECT. The resulting physical bond ensures a permanent combination of wear-resistance and low friction.
Base materials of Tfe-Lok® surfaces
In principle all base materials that can be improved by galvanization are suitable for Tfe-
Lok® including for most alloys of: steel, copper, nickel, bronze brass, aluminium and titan.
If you work with a rare alloy, please ask us.
