Enthone Introduces ENLUBE® Plus PTFE

27 March 2015

PFOS-free Dispersion for Electroless Nickel PTFE Coatings

WEST HAVEN, Connecticut, USA, March 25, 2015 – ENLUBE Plus PTFE advanced, PFOS-free dispersion has been introduced by Enthone. When used in combination with an Enthone electroless nickel process, the system delivers a single, integrated solution that produces EN PTFE coatings with superior wear resistance. Engineered to meet automotive, industrial, defense and electronics application requirements, a 50% increase in deposition rate with a PTFE build-in rate of up to 30% may be achieved, versus conventional EN PTFE systems.

ENLUBE Plus PTFE eliminates the need to inventory multiple dispersions and EN processes while meeting exacting OEM requirements. Unlike competitive systems, ENLUBE Plus PTFE imparts extremely smooth and uniform deposits that are not prone to “orange skin” appearances or edge pull back. Capable of plating high thicknesses, ENLUBE Plus PTFE is both PFOS-free and Cd/Pb-free and maintains a shelf-life of 12 months.

Helmut Horsthemke, Enthone Global Product Manager – Wear Resistant Coatings, said, “ENLUBE Plus PTFE is engineered to provide an advanced, EN PTFE coating when used in combination with select Enthone ENfinity® and ENPLATE® electroless nickel processes. ENLUBE Plus PTFE enables EN PTFE applicators to potentially overcome the limitations of existing technology, and thereby expand additional business opportunities.”
