New PTFE Dispersion in IPA
The McLube Division of McGee Industries, Inc. has developed a new PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) dispersion in IPA (Isopropyl Alocohol).
McLube PTFE Dry Film Dispersions are available as 25%, 15% and 5% dispersions in isopropyl alcohol (IPA). They will provide an extremely low coefficient of friction, are chemically inert and thermally stable to 6150 F. The average particles size is less than 10 microns. McLube PTFE Dispersions can be applied to all types of metal surfaces as well as plastic, rubber, leather, and fabric surfaces. They are supplied as concentrates and are normally diluted prior to their usage.
Products are designed to be used as:
Dry Film Lubricants
Mold release agents/ Antistick Coatings
Dry Film Lubricants
McLube PTFE Dry Film Dispersions have a low coefficient of friction allowing for a dry film lubricant with super performance attributes such as thermal and chemical stability, cleanliness and excellent slip-stick properties. Coatings will increase the wear life of parts by reducing abrasion.
Applications include: electrical connectors, bearings, slides, belts, gaskets,
Fasteners, fabrics, leather, rubber, plastics, gears, cables, rope, thread, locks, windows, saw blades, camera and audiovisual equipment, metalworking operations.
Mold Release Agents/Antistick Coatings
They are used to mold a variety of rubber, plastic and composite parts and materials. An applied coating provides excellent adhesion allowing for multiple parts to be molded with no transfer. The dry film coating provided by McLube Dry Film Dispersions will provide a synergy of antistick as well as lubricity characteristics.
Applications include: rubber, plastic and composite parts and materials, Mandrel lubrication, filament winding, SMC molding, cables and wiring.
McLube PTFE Dry Film Dispersions are also being used as additives to improve lubricity and promote thickening when added to liquids and semisolid formulations.
