LUBRICOMP compounds provide improved wear resistance and lower friction by combining engineering resins with various internal lubricants. Glass and carbon fibers can also be included for improved strength and stiffness. Lubricomp compounds can help extend product life and reduce or eliminate squeaks and other noise from moving parts.
FINE-TUNED LUBRICITY Inherent lubricity through a broad range of lubricants, including polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), silicones, aramid fiber, graphite, molybdenum disulfide, and other additives. Significantly reduce friction and wear rates of plastic parts moving over other surfaces, whether contact is plastic-on-metal or plastic-on-plastic. Can extend product life and reduce or eliminate squeaks and other noise from moving parts.
RANGE OF ENGINEERING THERMOPLASTICS Can be created from more than 25 engineering thermoplastics, including LEXAN resin and other polycarbonate (PC) resins, acetal (POM), polyamide (PA), polyphenylene sulfide (PPS), CYCOLAC resin and other acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) resins, polyetheretherketone (PEEK), polyphenylene oxide (PPO) and polypropylene (PP).
BROAD RANGE OF ATTRIBUTES Combined with other additives and reinforcements, such as carbon fiber, glass fiber, or glass bead, Lubricomp compounds offer a broad choice of engineering attributes, including excellent dimensional stability, low wear, enhanced mechanical and thermal properties, flame retardancy, and fatigue endurance.
FLAME RETARDANCY Can be compounded for flame retardancy (FR), including non-halogenated FR compounds.
COLORABILITY Available in a wide range of opaque colors.
HELPS CONTROL COST Can help eliminate the costly secondary lubricating operations, plus they offer the general benefits of injection molding, including greater design freedom, part consolidation, and improved production economies.
