The adhesion of Armoloy coating is excellent, ensuring that the coating does not peel off. In contrast to hard chrome plating, Armoloy TDC® has a pearl-like surface structure with 1 µm-sized chrome pearls that adhere closely to the material. In comparison, hard chrome plating has a layered structure with micro-cracks. In a test with linear guides, it was observed that the hard chrome plating began to peel off after a certain period of use, while the Armoloy TDC® coating showed no signs of peeling even after triple the duration of use.
Furthermore, the Armoloy TDC® coating is highly elastic and resistant to rolling. Even after impacts and bending of the workpiece, the coating does not peel off.
