DESIGNED FOR AGGRESSIVE WEAR AND CORROSION PROTECTION AT HIGH TEMPERATURES
Composite Nickel Boron Nitride products designed for aggressive wear and corrosion environments and can withstand elevated temperatures up to 1562F. NBN out performs standard Nickel-Teflon in friction tests and withstands temperatures exceeding 880°C.
PLASTIC INJECTION MOLDING
- Wear resistance, especially glass filled resins
- Release, lubricity: 2x that of Nickel Teflon
- Withstands extreme temperatures: 880C/1562F
- Improved cycle times, lubricity
- Thin, even deposit for conformance to geometry without re-machining
- Can be re-applied many times over, minimizing cost of new molds
- Chemical attack resistance, gassing
- Low temp process will not affect part geometries
- Uniform cooling, improved cycle times
- Thermal conductivity, mirrors substrate, no hot/cold spots due to coating
- Easy to clean media debris and residue from critical areas, lubricity and release
- Results in reduced product defects, reduced downtime, scrap, and labor hours, increased production due to increase cycle times and reduced maintenance/setup and tear down, improved mold performance and reliability, higher margins on production runs, faster break even on mold manufacturing costs
Through precise, engineered deposits, Armoloy TDC®, Nickel Boron Nitride (NBN) and our Polymer coatings add incredible value to plastic injection molding applications, as well as those in the areas of extrusion and thermoforming.
Particularly in the case of glass-filled resins, the NBN coating improves cycle time and wear life by imparting a harder, more lubricious surface to molding components. Unlike many other surface treatments, the NBN coatings can be removed and reapplied, as wear life and maintenance schedules dictate, with no damage incurred by the base metal. Textured surfaces will retain their integrity after the NBN coating process. Considered a cold process, Nickel Boron Nitride prevents distortion, annealing, and dimensional changes from occurring in the base metal.
Increased material flow, reduced maintenance time, cleaner molds, and release of the formed part from the molding tool are additional advantages Nickel Boron Nitride offers to the plastics forming industry. In a current application for a high end office furniture manufacture, NBN coating was applied for improved wear resistance, flow rate, and release. Time between maintenance cycles of the mold, which included expensive tear down and loss of production can be increased.
In addition to standard molding steels such as A-2, S-7, and H-13, Nickel Boron Nitride can also be applied to stainless steel, copper, beryllium, and bronze alloys.
Common applications include core and cavity blocks, lifters, sleeves, ejector pins, bushings, rotating cores, and inserts.

From fundamental components such as shafts, gears, and bearings, to the more complex components found in automated lines, packaging machines, and specialized machinery of every type, Gull Industries/Armoloy of Texas can engineer a unique coating solution to extend the life of your parts.
Armoloy TDC® and NBN (Nickel Boron Nitride) provide excellent wear resistance and corrosion protection for machine tools of all geometries. Electroless Nickel and polymer coatings offer even further protection from corrosion and offer moderate improvement in wear. In the case of Nickel Boron Nitride, high corrosion and temperature resistance and vastly improved lubricity are the primary benefits.
Specializing in high-precision applications, Armoloy of Texas works within close tolerances, applying as little as .000050″ to the component surface. A cold process, the Armoloy system prevents distortion and dimensional changes from occurring in the base metal.
Armoloy TDC® , our polymer coatings and Nickel Boron Nitride are ideal for working against themselves in sliding, metal-to-metal applications, reducing coefficients of friction to as low as .06 and eliminating galling. All coatings are applicable to nearly all ferrous and nonferrous metals.
Common applications include shafts, bearings, cams, gears, rolls, seals, and specialized components for automated machinery.
