Tech-Ni-Plant has been established at Aston Science Park Birmingham for over 30 years. The company supplies a full range of surface treatment processes to moulders, toolmakers and in house processors which can:-
Improve Wear Resistance
Improve Corrosion Resistance
Increase Surface Hardness
A no risk, low temperature impregnation of nitrogen which improves wear resistance and micro hardness.
Hard Chromium and Electroless Nickel Plating
Corrosion resistant metal coatings also offering wear resistance. A uniform thickness range of 5-75 microns in nickel for protection of new tooling or adding size; and a deposit range of 5 microns to 0.4mm in chrome for protection or significant build up.
Eas-i-glide, Eas-i-dure and NiSil
Nickel based coatings with additives of PTFE or boron nitride for fantastic release properties or silicon carbide for extra wear resistance.
Titanium and Chromium Nitride
3-5 microns of high hard coatings offering metal to metal friction reduction; and Friction Guard Nano able to extend the life of parts in ceramic processing.
Diamond Like Coating
A thin hard carbon deposit black in colour also able to offer friction reduction.
Other services available include mould polishing and materials testing.
The company has strong research links with Universities, Trade Associations and Suppliers.
