Low friction co-efficient coatings for dentistry equipment

High accuracy and a low co-efficient of friction are the key requirements for miniature high speed bearings, as used in dentistry drills. We have developed a special formula of Armourcote® thin film coating system for this application. Find out more Armourcote® coatings


Innovative surface coating for hospital body scanner magnets

A leading supplier of body scanning magnets required a coating to release resin from their mould tools. This application required not only surface release but excellent abrasion and wear resistance from the resin system used. The Armourcote® 4500 Series coating, the result of three years’ research and development, provided the solution. Find out more Armourcote® coatings
