Armoloy Coating Applications – The Industry Gold Standard in Coating Technology
ARMOLOY is a low-temperature, multi-state metal finishing process based on chrome plating technology.
Unlike conventional chrome plating processes, ARMOLOY utilizes proprietary chemical solutions and application processes that are carefully monitored to produce its TDC (thin dense chromium) coating which follows the exact contours of the base metal with controlled deposit thicknesses.
All threads, flutes, even scratches and blemishes are reproduced in detail with 100% adhesion to all base metals. RMS finishes will improve slightly, to 8.
Surfaces greater than 62 will be greatly improved. Internal and external surfaces on nearly all shapes and configurations can be uniformly processed. In general, slots or grooves less than 0.187? wide, having a depth greater than width, and bores less than 0.187? diameter may not be uniformly processed. Such parts should be submitted for test applications. Used as the final coating on parts and equipment, Armoloy imparts an attractive satiny silver matte or nodular finish. Armoloy chromium coatings are a superior alternatives to surface finishes such as “flash” hard chrome, Gullite, Duralloy Thin Dense Plating, Metalife Hard Chrome Plating.
ARMOLOY coated parts reduce friction, increase wear life and enhance corrosion resistance.
Wherever ARMOLOY-to-ARMOLOY coated parts contact each other, these characteristics are further enhanced for even less friction, longer life and corrosion resistance.
ARMOLOY can be applied to all gas nitrided surfaces.
All nitrided components submitted for ARMOLOY® coating must be clearly marked and identified as nitrided parts.

THE INDUSTRY GOLD STANDARD IN COATING TECHNOLOGY
Armoloy TDC (Thin Dense Chrome) is a hard (78 Rc), thin, dense chromium coating with a micronodular surface texture. Developed to protect and enhance a wide range of manufacturing tools and components, Armoloy TDC is applied in a chemical bath by means of a proprietary process.
The coating’s nodular finish reduces the amount of surface area exposed to surfaces in contact with it, thereby substantially reducing friction and extending wear life. This nodular finish also retains smaller amounts of industrial lubricants for longer periods, both further reducing friction and creating a cleaner work environment.
Armoloy TDC is commonly applied to bearings, tools and dies, plastic molding components, food processing and packaging equipment, automated machinery, engine components, oil and gas drilling tools, pumps, and any component where wear, abrasion, high friction, and corrosive environments are a concern. The coating may be applied to tool steels, stainless steels, copper alloys, bronze, and brass.
Typically applied at a deposit of .0001/.0003″ (2.5/7.5 microns), Armoloy TDC is effective at deposits as low as .00005″ (1 micron). The uniformity of the deposit, even on tightly-toleranced components, allows Armoloy to return a finished product to the end-user.
