PTFE micro-powders are primarily PTFE particles that provide lubrication and therefore reduce friction between surfaces. However, micro-powders go further than this; it acts as a flame-retardant, makes products resistant against UV and prevents squeaking when two materials touch. Moreover, these lubricants are applied to surfaces where reduced friction, improved abrasion resistance and non-stick properties are desired. They can be used in various applications, such as automotive , marine and the printing industry.
PTFE lubricants characteristics
The main characteristics of PTFE lubricants are:
- Low friction: PTFE has excellent lubricating properties, which helps reduce friction between moving parts, thus minimizing abrasion and extending the lifespan of components.
- Non-stick properties: PTFE’s non-stick nature prevents substances from adhering to surfaces, making it useful in applications where sticking or buildup is a concern.
- Wide application range: PTFE lubricants find use in diverse fields, such as automotive, marine, industrial machinery and more. They are applied to various numbers of other polymers due to their typical characteristics.
- Temperature resistance: PTFE can withstand a wide temperature range, making these lubricants suitable for both high-temperature and low-temperature applications.
