VICOTE Coatings are increasingly finding use as an alternative to fluoropolymer coatings, and a suitable choice for engineers aiming to enhance wear performance, and life of the coated part in their applications. VICOTE Coatings, whose main ingredient is VICTREX PEEK polymer, can have applications in molds, automotive, food processing, semiconductor, electronics or pharmaceutical parts.
Sung Hyoung Precision, a South Korean provider of technological innovation for golf ball core molds used high performance VICOTE Coatings powder and liquid dispersions as the coating solution to extend the mold's lifespan and reduce system costs. VICOTE Coatings are a perfect substitute to the traditional fluoropolymer and metal plating materials due to their brilliant combination of good release properties with wear resistance, especially at high temperatures. Also, the one-coat VICOTE Coatings system eliminates the need for primer reducing the need for recurrent coating maintenance and logistics costs.
