Coventya Introduces Eco-Friendly PTFE Composite Coating
Coventya’s ENOVA 115 PTFE process is an electroless nickel-phosphorus plating system that is PFOS/PFOA free.
Coventya Inc. (Brooklyn Heights, Ohio) has introduced ENOVA 115 PTFE, a
PTFE composite coating that meets the PFOS/PFOA free technology and is ROHS compliant.
The ENOVA 115 PTFE process is an electroless nickel-phosphorus plating system that incorporates polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) as occluded particles in a high phosphorus electroless nickel deposit matrix with a capability range from 15–25% by volume PTFE inclusion. This unique process is specially designed to produce a consistent amount of uniformly dispersed PTFE throughout the EN deposit.
ENVOA 115 PTFE deposits are excellent for providing very low friction values, especially in applications where sliding wear is present and the wear mechanism is induced by light, well-distributed loads. The release and anti-stick properties of ENVOA 115 PTFE deposits are excellent, resulting in increased life for tools, molds, dies and other coated surfaces.
