Physical Properties

Application of MTP (MicroTechPlating)

Corrosion resistance Protect high polished surface (optically)
Excellent thermal conductivity Cutting and bending tools paper industry
High hardness Longer Lifespan for textile machine parts
Low friction Better release of plastic & rubber (down time production cycles)
Scratch Proof Corrosion protection
Non-sticky No jam of metals (trim and form tools)
Wear resistance Protect EDM texture surface (plastic injection molding)


ACT’s tradition of high quality of MTP is determined by the testing in compliance to RoHS 3 Directive EU 2015/863. We hope the results prove informative and helpful in your decision to try our MTP. Please contact us if you would like a copy of the actual report for the results described below.
