Q. Are there any composite coatings available that use aluminum bronze alloy? I am looking for a composite coating with gold/bronze color and good corrosion resistance.

Hi Terry. Unfortunately, "composite coatings" is a pretty vague, situationally dependent phrase. Some people call fiberglass coatings "composite coatings" because you have glass fibers in a plastic base. Some people call nickel platings that have imbedded particles "composite coatings".

You want your coating to have a gold/bronze color, and you want it to have good corrosion resistance, and those requirements are understandable. But why do you want it to be a composite coating? What are you trying to achieve in that area? Thanks.

Q. Abrasion resistance and lubricity. I am currently using a Ni PTFE composite coating, but need to find a gold/bronze color option with similar corrosion resistance properties.
