PLASMADIZE(reg) TNS Series of self-lubricating thermal spray coating provides protection against corrosion and wear resistance and improves the performance reliability of small and large metal parts. The coating is a composite of developments in metals, ceramics, polymers, and dry lubricants, and eliminates adhesive residue buildup. The materials are combined to produce a "synergistic" surface enhancement with a low coefficient of friction. Applications include those where adhesive residue and buildup can cause problems.
