NEDOX :

 
 
 
• Dramatically increases surface hardness
• Resists corrosion by chemicals and acids
• Prevents abrasive wear and galling
• Self-lubricating for extended wear
• Provides superior mold release
• Permanently dry-lubricated for very low COF
• Speeds cleanup and sanitation maintenance
• Many meet NSF, FDA, USDA, and AgriCanada codes
 
 
Engineering Data and Performance Characteristics of NEDOX : 
1) Corrosion Resistance :
NEDOX "synergistic" coatings are superior in corrosion resistance to chromium or standard Electrolytic-Nickel Plated Coatings. A 0.025mm coating shows little or no corrosion after 14 months of continuous exposure to atmosphere and salt water. Good resistance to most common chemicals. Certain coatings show no effect after 90 days immersion in pH 3.0 - 9.5 solutions. Some NEDOX coatings are especially resistant to phosphate-free bleach used in wash down solutions in food processing and packaging operations. NEDOX Coatings on aluminum also provide resistance to a wide range of chemicals.
 
2 ) Wear Resistance :
Hardness is up to Rc 68 (940 Vickers scale) - better than hard chrome plate. There is no degradation of fatigue strength. NEDOX coatings also eliminate the likelihood of galling or seizing.
 

 
 
FOA / USDA / NSF / AgriCanada Compliance :
Compliance with FDA, USDA, NSF, and AgriCanada codes makes many NEDOX coatings particularly advantageous for food and pharmaceutical applications. These non-stick coatings eliminate the potential growth of mold and bacteria by creating a dense, non-porous surface. They are used extensively on processing, packaging and handling equipments to prevent product residue from clinging to machinery and add the benefits of quicker equipment cleanup and sanitation maintenance.
 
Non-stick Release Properties :
Very few solid substances, even adhesives, adhesive backed products or glues, will permanently adhere to the proprietary polymer-impregnated surface of a NEDOX coated part. Most substances, such as plastics, rubber or slurries, release easily. Some extremely tacky materials may exhibit mild temporary adhesion.
 
A Few Typical Applications :
Aircraft, aerospace, chemical processing equipment, electronic equipment, food processing, heat sinks, meters (gas & electric), molds (release media), packaging equipment, pharmaceutical processing, pumps, sealing equipment, textile manufacturing, ball valves and nuclear applications.
 
NEDOX Family of "Synergistic" Coatings :
SF-2 Hardness (up to Rc 65) combined with lubricity. USDA / FDA / NSF / AgriCanada-compliant. NASA materia #20386*.
SF-2R Same as SF-2, but with superior mold release. USDA / FDA / NSF-compliant.
MR-3(U-4) Excellent mold release for plastics, urethane epoxies and rubber. Recommended for UV curing .
l-SLK Combines release properties of 615 with the wear properties of SF-2. USDA / FDA-compliant.
