Applications

FEATURES

Low friction coefficient
High pressure-absorption capacity
Prevents seizure and scoring
Suppresses stick-slip
Reduces formation of fretting corrosion
Facilitates disassembly
Good coverage
Provides emergency running perfomance

APPLICATIONS

Suitable for the press-fit production of all types of machine elements, as a running-in lubricant for new machines and gears, as permanent lubrication of machine elements which are submitted to slight or intermittent movement only, as well as for drilling, sawing and thread-cutting.
Used to lubricate threaded spindles, splined shafts, tooth gearing, worm gearing, moving screws, fittings, pumps, guides on machine tools, as well as for fitting ball and roller bearings, pulleys, wheel flanges and bolts.

It is used in friction

  • Sliding bearings
  • Sliding guideways
  • Chains
  • Linear bearings
  • Enclosed gears
  • Open gears
  • Piston-cylinder-group (unit)
  • Interference fits
  • Threaded connections
  • Strips
  • Spline / key joints

Advantages

  • Termal (heat) resistance
  • Very high load carrying capacity
  • Working capacity in moisture
  • Good fretting corrosion protection
  • Emergency properties
  • Aerosol
  • Avoidance of stick-slip
  • Provides constant torque for threaded connections
  • Reduces friction and tool wear in metal cutting
  • Easy mounting / dismounting

Problems to be Solved material

  • Higher heating and wear of cutting tools
  • Seizure
  • Stick-slip motion
  • Brinelling or false brinelling
  • Fretting corrosion
  • Frequent re-lubrication
  • Difficult mounting / dismounting
  • Lubrication points inaccessibility
  • Unstable torque because of wide range friction coefficient
