General mechanics

There are numerous areas in the fields of general mechanics where coatings take on important roles:

  • reducing the use of lubricant
  • reducing friction
  • reducing abrasive and adhesive wear at high and low temperatures
  • increased resistance to corrosion in chemically aggressive areas
  • designing gears with lower power absorption


The advantages which Lafer coatings can give in general mechanics are:

  • in the chemical sector: containment of the effects of corrosive gases
  • oil & gas/fluid mechanics sector: eduction of the weight of components
  • machine tools sector: reduction of friction and increased resistance to corrosion
  • pharmaceutical sector: anti-sticking and anti-wear effects
  • precision mechanics: resistance to scratches and wear with good aesthetics.
