Armourcote surface coating

Armourcote®

Anti-friction Reinforced PTFE Coatings

Armourcote® is the ultimate coating for applications requiring exceptional non-stick, abrasion resistance and low friction co-efficient properties.
Armourcote
A result of our ongoing research and development, Armourcote® composite coatings overcome the basic limitations of softness which are inherent in traditional fluoropolymer and fluorocarbon systems whilst retaining all the required properties of the polymers.

Key Properties

Typical Applications

  • Surface release (non-stick)
  • Excellent abrasion resistance
  • Low co-efficient of friction
  • Mixing bowls and vessels
  • Vibratory conveyer systems
  • Dough hoppers and moulders
  • Paper dying cylinders
  • Textile dye troughs

Armourcote® 1000 Series

Armourcote® 1000 series reinforces the polymer coating with a flame spray metal reinforcement matrix pre-treatment system.

The benefits of this system are improved wear resistance and lower friction, leading to improved abrasion resistance. Loads are taken up by the reinforcement peaks and any wear and abrasion that occurs exposes more of the fluoropolymer coatings. The peaks of reinforcement are continuously smeared with the coating which results in a smooth wear and abrasion resistant, low friction finish. Controlled surface roughness, which provides improved surface release, is another benefit of the reinforcement matrix.
