Friction Engineering


From high temperature lubricants to ultra grip industrial coatings, CTS has developed industry leading solutions engineered to overcome every type of friction-related challenge.

When the heat is on

Our lubricants can operate at temperatures up to 1,000 degrees F while maintaining integrity and performance. These versatile lubricants can be applied as stand alone coatings or over top thermally sprayed coatings to further enhance system functionality and durability.

CTS also offers high temperature thermal spray wear coatings that retain low coefficients of friction to mitigate galling—and possess extreme wear resistant properties to combat vibrational and frictional wear.

Solutions that stick

To counteract slick surfaces, CTS produces a variety of tough thermal spray ultra grip coatings proven to last over time. We can match solutions to “roughen up” any surface and produce the exact level of traction needed for precise operations. From conveyor rollers to ship deck surfaces, CTS can ensure the proper surface treatment to improve safety or simply maximize machine efficiencies.
