Molybdenum coated differential pin for an auto- motive transaxle/differential


Long wear life required on hardened steel differential pin/shaft for automotive transaxle/differential assembly. Traditional nickel plating did not provide adequate performance or life in this service application.


Apply wear resistant, low friction, anti-galling coating of pure molybdenum metal to the OD for long life and durability to withstand the demanding transaxle environment.


Successful enhancement of critical wear surfaces with a thermal sprayed coating. Coating has excellent bonding and has a longer life than traditional nickel plating.

Value Statement:

Longer life product to ensure reliable operation of differential assembly in demanding service environment that traditional plating could not provide.
