Hey I'm looking to coat some 0.5" aluminum rods with some sort of coating to increase the friction coefficient ("tackiness" I believe it's called). It will be used in high temperature environments of up to 200C. Does anyone know of such product?

I tried calling this company but that product can't get anywhere near 200C.

Thanks!

It's just that silicone won't adhere to aluminium. Maybe things get less bad if you anodise first.

My suggestion is a nickel layer. These have a high coefficient of friction, and better, they don't gall.

You already know that aluminium alloys are capable of nearly nothing at 200, do you?

Need high-temp rubber coating

could try a belzona coating depending on what your doing

They are usually painted on smooth, but I can imagine you cant make it rougher when you apply it. Also expensive but good for temps up to 180C
