Surface technology for the fine mechanics

LF4 - polymeroxid low frictionpolymeroxid®


Our polymeroxid®-LF4 process creates a novel special anodised coating for applications where surface smoothness is the main focus. In comparison with xH4® the hardness of the coating is somewhat reduced, but the frictional characteristics have been further optimized. When the right material is chosen, excellent decorative effects can be achieved, whereby new fields of application are opened up for which hard anodising was previously not an option.

polymeroxid®-LF4 is in standard use by major manufacturers for the piston ways of shock-absorber elements. Besides the required wear-resistance, the best-possible frictional characteristics are achieved.

polymeroxid®-LF4 produces the smoothest hard-anodised surfaces on the market.
