Micro Tuff™ Is A Polymer
That increases the surface performance of metals
It reduces friction, galling and wear while also improving lubricity, release and corrosion resistance. Micro Tuff™ gives metals the surface condition needed to perform in industrial environments.
Description & Benefits
About Micro Tuff™
Micro Tuff™ is designed for ultimate performance on Tooling, Dies, Molds, and Roll surfaces. It reduces faction, galling and wear, while also, improving lubricity, release and corrosion resistance. Micro Tuff™ gives metals the surface condition needed to perform in industrial environments.
Micro Tuff™ can be applied to any metal or alloy, regardless of its hardness or application. Specific applications include: hard hromium, nickel, electroless nickel, stainless steel, tool steel,
Stavax™, Ramax™ thermal spray, aluminum, copper, as well as a host of other metal surfaces.
Micro Tuff™ is a long-chain, highly cross-linked polymer, with an organic penetrating agent that is provided in bar form. It is used to impregnate metallic substrates and coatings, thereby, improving surface performance. Micro Tuff™ polymerizes during application, wherein it takes on synergistic properties.
Micro Tuff is easy and inexpensive to apply; special
equipment is not required.
