|Type of plating||Characteristic value||Uses|
|Electroless nickel-Teflon composite plating||- Since the particles of Teflon, which is a fluorine resin, have excellent water repellency, Teflon composite plating containing 10 – 35vol% in electroless nickel plating films is used.
The particle size of Teflon is approximately 0.2 – 0.3μm. The contact angle to water is 116 degrees at maximum, showing water repellency comparable with Teflon plate.

|Silane coupling treated zinc-nickel-silica composite plating||- Immobilization of organic-functional-group water-repellent fluorine-based silane coupling agents like CF3(CF2)3-CH2CH2Si(OCH3)3 to plated surfaces (formation of self-assembled films).||Rust-proofing of various metal products|
