Ever heard of a product called Nickelon
Q. I've heard Nickelon is a fabulous mold treatment and think the manufacturer is in California but can find nothing with a search for this trade name.

A. I believe that Nickelon is electroless nickel co-deposited with submicron Teflon particles. As you'd expect, this composite coating has lower coefficient of friction than electroless nickel, but it's softer too.Jeff Rosedale

A. Hi. I'm not familiar with that specific brand but, yes, composite coatings of electroless nickel with Teflon seem to be an excellent coating for certain molds. Another brand name is Niflor, and if you search our site you will find many discussion threads on composite electroless nickel plating. Good luck.
