Sliding and Detachment

Technical features

VICOTE PEEK-PTFE coatings were developed to improve the performance of mechanical components through the maximum reduction of friction coefficient, both static or dynamic, even if we have corrosive conditions.

These are mainly composed by PTFE, which, besides being an excellent solid lubricant, allows to improve the characteristics of mechanical components with high performances.


The main benefits of those coatings are the following:

  • no direct metal-metal contact

  • very low friction coefficient (0.05 to 0.020)

  • the coefficient of static friction is lower than the dynamic one

  • no stick-slip

  • corrosion protection

  • reduction of heat and friction noise
