We've created AFC 2103, a coating containing MoS2 (molybdenum disulphide) and PTFE providing excellent dry film lubrication whilst maintaining a low coefficient of friction. This enables our clients to use products where a secondary release agent is not advisable. 

Our coatings provide friction control and surface release solutions for a wide range of industrial applications where liquid lubricants cannot be used. By working closely with our key suppliers, precise formulations can be engineered to provide customised options that meet with your exact requirements.

If you let us know your operating conditions and service requirements we can select the right coating for the job.

Outstanding Wear Resistance
Our Self-Lubricating Coatings have outstanding wear resistance, helping you minimise downtime and production costs.
Low Coefficient of Friction
Our Self-Lubricating Coatings have a low coefficient of friction, helping you to extend your coatings lifespan.
Optimum Balance
Our Self-Lubricating Coatings have an optimum balance of low friction, hardness and durability.

What are the benefits?

By reducing wear, galling, and excessive heat generation on components gives reduced maintenance cost, machinery down time and operating limitations.

These types of coatings provide effective lubrication in a wide range of loads, in many cases exceeding 150,000 psi (10,500kg/cm²). They provide friction reduction and control in harsh conditions and are suitable for tough mechanical applications. The coatings are thermally cured and bonded to the base metal of the coated part.

Our service is delivered by an experienced skilled workforce and backed up by a comprehensive quality system and coating testing facility.
