Features

Benefits

Self-Lubricating
Requires no grease or oil. Permits continuous operation and eliminates downtime.
Hot
Works at high temperatures where oil-based lubricants burn off or oxidize and plastics fail. Operating temperatures to 1,500º F / 800º C (in non-oxidizing atmospheres). Will not gum or seize.
Cold
Does not congeal or solidify at low temperatures or cryogenic conditions. Maintains self-lubrication.
Dry
Works without lubrication. Survives run dry applications. Eliminates galling or seizing in hot and dry conditions. Will not attract dust.
Wet
Operates submerged. Will not swell or wash out. Withstands a wide variety of hostile fluids.
Dimensionally stable

Does not cold flow or deform under pressure. Maintains its size and shape.

Chemically Resistant
Insoluble in most industrial liquids. Works in acids, alkalies, hydrocarbons, water, and liquid gases.
Low Coefficient of Friction
Constant, low coefficient of friction. Not just a surface layer, solid throughout.
Linear Motion
Maintains lubrication during linear motion. Lubrication is not drawn out and dust is not pulled in.
Current Conducting
Eliminates sparks and static. Conducts well.
FDA Accepted
Accepted for food services. No lubrication to drip or cleanup. Easily steam cleaned.
