Galling

Galling

Avoid the gall of premature failure

Interaction of two sliding surfaces under load can result in the transfer of material from one sliding surface to another. This galling is a severe form of wear that can cause premature shutdowns and increased maintenance and repair costs. We design solutions for your galling problems by evaluating your application based on mating materials.

Coating optimized for your needs

Our broad anti-galling coating portfolio is optimized for your application based on mating materials. To select the best coating for your needs we evaluate microstructure, phase composition, hardness, abrasion resistance and sliding wear resistance.
