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 electro–chemical-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.

Tfe-Lok® in various applications

Tfe-Lok® surfaces are used wherever wear problems, “stick” problems or electrostatical

charging appear.

Tfe-Lok® surfaces ensure a smooth manufacturing process and therefore less “down” time.
