  • Fluon TM PTFE Micropowders Outperform Conventional Lubricant Additives for Rubber Compounds
    Many natural rubber and synthetic elastomer products used in the automotive and consumer durable industries are compounded with lubricating additives for improved tribological performance as well as processing advantages. Products like O-rings, hoses, fan belts, strips, seals and gaskets require
  • Nonlubed leadscrews
    PTFE-based coatings reduce leadscrew wear while practically eliminating maintenance. The stainless-steel leadscrews have threads coated with Danaher Motion's TriCoat PTFE-based solid-film lubricant. They perform well without oil or grease and with little to no maintenance even in environments
  • Magnalube-G Case Study - Duke University
    for better lubricants in this field. One lubricant, an all-purpose grease reinforced in its lubricity and "staying power" by a. suspension of PTFE resin powder is being used to the air conditioning and refrigeration maintenance field with promising success. At Duke University the superintendant
  • Magnalube-G Case Study: HVAC Equipment (.pdf)
    At Duke University the superintendant of the Air Conditioning Refrigeration Department reported greatly reduced bearing trouble and, consequently, less equipment downtime in pump and motors after he switched from conventional greases to PTFE reinforced grease. The specialized lubricant, Magnalube-G
  • Lube-for-life journal bearings
    Composite journal bearings can operate without external lubrication, even in harsh environments that challenge most conventional types. Lube-free composite journal bearings from Polygon, Co., Walkerton, Ind., use interwoven PTFE super filaments. The material provides small pockets for contaminants
  • Plastic Nuts become a hot topic
    plastic nuts let the devices run smoothly, quietly, and stiction-free, without periodic ( external) lubrication. Nuts of acetal-based plastics blended with 15% PTFE (Teflon) lubricant work for light to medium loads and speeds, but can overheat when subjected to high duty cycles and and elevated
  • LNP Lubriloy Compounds
    effective wear and friction performance vs. traditional lubricants like PTFE. Since 1994, SABIC Innovative Plastics has expanded this technology to commonly-used resins such as polycarbonate, nylon, acetal, and PPA (high heat nylon). Additional lubricants and reinforcements can also be added
  • Selection Factors for Seals
    seals. The general limitation on temperature for standard synthetics is about 225 F although some are available for uses up to 600 F. PTFE can be used over a temperature range of -400 to 550 F, although most manufacturers rate PTFE seals on the basis of 500 F maximum temperature. Asbestos
