Dry Film Lubricant serves as assembly aid.December 8, 2010 -
Consisting of 15% aqueous dispersion of PTFE, NyeFilm® 501F is applied in wet form, which then dries to surface. Product was developed to have controlled particle size distribution where no particles are greater than 10 microns, allowing for even distribution of PTFE. Environmentally safe, NyeFilm® 501F offers rub and abrasion resistance as well as chemical compatibility with all polymers.

NyeFilm® 501F is a lubricious 15% aqueous dispersion of PTFE. This dispersion is applied in a "wet form" which then dries to the surface. NyeFilm® 501F was developed to have a controlled particle size distribution where no particles are greater than 10 microns. This allows for an even distribution of PTFE. Additional benefits of NyeFilm® 501F include rub and abrasive resistance and chemical compatibility with all polymers.
Originally NyeFilm® 501F was designed as an assembly aid dry film to substantially reduce insertion forces in automotive markets. Our customers require a lubricant that is both in "dry form" and environmentally friendly. NyeFilm® 501F provides superior lubricity while being cost effective and environmentally safe. Nye uses the Instron testing of o-rings sliding on metal shafts and it has shown greater than 60% force reductions on popular polymers such as NBR, EPDM, and Viton.
