Lubricated compounds provide internal lubricity by combining resins with some carefully selected lubricants such as PTFE, graphite, silicone & other fillers. Lubricated compounds improve mechanical and component performance & reliability with lower cost.
Lubricated compounds keep moving parts free of external grease and lubricants, thus extend product life and reduce or eliminate noise / squeaks.
Lubricated compounds are commonly used in bearing, gears, cams, latches, cover panels and interior components of business machines.
With the right combination of reinforcements and additives, an unlimited choice of compounds can be developed with lower wear, enhanced physical and thermal properties, and dimensional stability.
