Teflon Coating for Low Friction(2001)
I am trying to find a way to coat a curvy bar (rectangular cross section) so it will have VERY little friction with a slider that rides on it. The curvy bar is either made of Aluminum or Titanium. Teflon or any other material with low coefficient of friction will be helpful. This is related to a very high tech application that requires very little friction. Can any one help us? Any suggestions?
We would like to sub-contract the finishing process as soon as possible.

Many anodizing companies can provide a coating for this application. Each company gives the process their own trade name such as Hard Tuff, Tuffram, Tufcoat etc. In general terms it is a teflon impregnated hard anodize.Dennis Zvalo
