 Tufram outperforms hardcoat anodizing and is the ideal solution for protecting aluminum components from abrasion, corrosion, sticking, and galling.

Tufram is an enhancement finishing that makes aluminum harder than steel and has self-lubricating qualities. It is an especially beneficial solution for customers who are using aluminum parts that are:

  • Operating under a high RPM
  • Experiencing premature component failure
  • Exposed to reactive chemicals
  • Molding epoxies, plastics, rubbers, or food products
  • In need of FDA compliant and/or Canadian Food Approved variants.


By applying Tufram to your units, you will have a strong, long-lasting component that is designed to outlast untreated aluminum.
