Poly-Ond is Electroless nickel (nickel phosphorous) impregnated with teflon throughout the entire coating. Nickel for wear resistance, phosphorous for corrosion protection, and teflon for lubricity and release.
The standard thickness is 0.0005 inch. The overall thickness range is from 0.000050 to 0.005 inch per surface.
The normal hardness is Rc 58-62 or 700 VHN. The Poly-Ond finish can be heat treated to RC 68-70 or 1000 VHN. More Info
The Poly-Ond coating is uniformly distributed over the entire surface including internal and external areas.
The coating ranges from bright to semi-bright to a matte finish depending on the finish of the basis material before coating. The color is similar to stainless steel.
Poly-Ond can be chemically stripped from the basis material.
The coating should be mechanically cleaned. Polishing paste, scotchbrite pad, brass or a stainless steel brush can be used. DO N0T USE blasting media or strong alkaline material.
