Hard Chromium Plating


I'm not in finishing industry. However, I need info on PTFE, Titanium Nitride, and Diamond Black coatings for IC manufacturing equipment wear parts.

I am also looking for local supplier in Phoenix, AZ area (or somewhere in Southwest US at least) to work with.

PTFE can be applied by spraying, dipping in fluidized bed, etc; it can also be applied by co-deposition during electroless nickel plating, and that represents a very good wear surface.

Titanium nitride is actually a vacuum process, not plating, and SVC ( can probably help you.

Regarding diamond black, please see letter 582.

Of course the most traditional wear surface for most equipment parts is probably hard chrome plating. Good luck.
