TS225 is based on a nanostructured thermoset polymer designed for low friction and high wear resistance at low to medium loads in dry or lubricated conditions. TS225 is part of the standard TriboShield® product range.


  • Piston skirts for internal combustion engines
  • Garden and DYI tools
  • Excellent friction at high sliding speeds
  • Very good friction in lubricated conditions
  • Applicable to heat-sensitive substrates
  • High surface hardness

TriboShield® coatings are applied directly to the customer’s part and are suitable for complex geometries as well as various substrates e.g. steel, stainless steel, Al, Ti, Mg, etc. They can be used for both interacting surfaces that are in relative motion.
