Armoloys anti gall characteristics can provide a number of solutions for material selection challenges.

The extreme hardness of the coating (78HRc), coupled with the anti gall characteristics make it ideal. Applications that are suitable for Armoloy include areas similar to these listed below:

  • Ball Screws and Nuts
  • Hydraulics
  • Bearings
  • Sensor Devices (Radar, etc.)
  • Landing Gear
  • Transmission Components (gears, pinions, splines)
  • Valves
  • Safety devices (latches, pivot pins)
  • Repair parts

Meeting the exacting needs of the Aerospace industry is a core business area for Armoloy (UK) Limited. Many years of experience, working on both civil and defence programmes, helps the Armoloy Team to work in partnership with design teams to develop the best solutions for material surface issues.

Currently, in use on major rotorcraft and fixed-wing projects, Armoloy meets the demanding approvals of the leading aerospace manufacturers.

The unique Armoloy process ensures a consistent coating thickness and increased reliability over traditional hard chrome plating. The consistency of finish effectively encapsulates components and ensures finished machine sizes are maintained and protected.

Components coated in Armoloy help increase operating efficiency by reducing friction and, as a result, actuating pressure.
