We are working with top motorsport customers to overcome wear issues on ferrous and non-ferrous materials for high performance parts.
Titanium is often used in performance-critical, high load-bearing and weight sensitive environments. But it is a technically challenging material and suffers from intense galling which limits its use in conjunction with traditional coating methods such as titanium surface oxidising, spray coatings and plating. Coating with Hardide has prevented titanium galling and has shown an excellent load-bearing capacity with an absence of wear, even under high load. Furthermore, the Hardide coating demonstrates strong adhesion and doesn’t require grinding to finish.
