Low friction coating

Low friction coatings allow components to slide over each other, can reduce wear and heat caused by friction. They are also used to reduce squeaks and rattles. There are many coating options applied by powder or wet techniques. PTFE and fluorocarbon based coatings, such as Teflon, Xylan, Emralon have good high temperature performance, but as the coatings are thin, are not as resistant to abrasion as Nylon R-LF which is ideal for sliding and rotating bearing applications such as automotive spline shafts, slides for doors and filing cabinets, relay plungers, shift forks and other bearing surfaces. Molybdenum Disulphide is often used in these coatings to improve lubricity - Molydag and Molykote being examples of resin-bonded lubricants based on Molybdenum Disulphide. We have provided solutions for many applications, please contact our technical department for advice.
