NICKLON™ is the go-to in many applications. It offers corrosion and oxidation protection equal to Electroless Nickel, with excellent lubricity and wear resistance due to the co-deposit of Electroless Nickel and P.T.F.E. As a result, it’s ideal for grease-free conditions, often eliminating the need for release sprays.


  • Application possible in 0.0005
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Excellent lubristic characteristics
  • Enhances resin flow by 4-8%
  • Autocatalytic application ensures a uniform application in complex details
  • Will mimic the finish of the base material
