LubriOne™ Internally Lubricated Formulations

LubriOne™ lubricated and wear-resistant compounds have been specifically formulated to be self-lubricating materials, offering low coefficient of friction and improved wear-resistance properties. These materials combine the unique benefits of internal lubricants such as PTFE, silicone and molybdenum disulfide with a wide array of base engineering resins. LubriOne compounds have been demonstrated to reduce friction, noise, vibration, heat buildup and improve product durability.            

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Excellent wear resistance
  • Reduced friction
  • Reduced heat buildup
  • Reduced noise and vibration
  • Lower power requirements
  • Low maintenance
  • Design flexibility
  • Reduced weight
  • Ideal for for applications in many industries, including transportation, industrial, household, healthcare, electrical and electronic

The following lubricants and reinforcements enhance the performance of LubriOne™ compounds:

  • PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) offers the lowest coefficient of friction of any internal lubricant, and results in significantly lower wear rates than traditional plastics
  • Silicone behaves primarily as a boundary lubricant, and significantly reducing wear rates and coefficients of friction when compounded into thermoplastics at low levels
  • Molybdenum disulfide is typically compounded with nylon resins to reduce wear rates

Reinforcements:

  • Glass fibers are a cost-effective reinforcement to increase compound stiffness, strength and improve resistance to long-term creep
  • Carbon fibers, with a high strength-to-weight ratio, are ideal for applications with stringent stiffness and strength requirements
  • Aramid fibers reduce the wear of the mating surface and improve the performance of the entire assembly
