Poor corrosion resistance and the softness of light metals such as magnesium are no longer an issue thanks to a new process. Using laser beams, the high-performance plastic material PEEK can be applied to components in the spots that are subjected to the most stress. Initial tests have shown that the protective layer can expand the lifetime of the component by up to 100 times by reducing the frictional wear in specific locations. More Information
