PTFE-Impregnated Bearing Balls minimize friction.

Press Release Summary:

To maximize bearing life, Bearing Balls can be impregnated with Zonyl® MP1100 fluoroadditive and Chemlube 645 synthetic lubricant, which, when combined, minimize wear and weathering. Consisting of white, free-flowing PTFE powder, Zonyl® MP1100 can be added to lubricants to optimize performance under severe or abnormal conditions. Chemlube 645, offering low evaporation rate and oxidation stability, prevents oil seepage to extend motor life.

Triangle Manufacturing Introduces Teflon Oil Bearing Balls

Triangle's PTFE-impregnated bearing balls are engineered to further reduce friction and extend bearing life

Triangle Manufacturing introduces the option of impregnating bearing balls with an additive and a synthetic lubricant: Zonyl® MP1100 and Chemlube 645. When combined these lubricants can extend the life of the bearing while decreasing wear and weathering.

Dupont's technical information describes Zonyl® MP1100, as a fluoroadditive that is a white, free-flowing PTFE powder. It can provide improved lubricity and increased wear resistance. When it is added to lubricants, it can enhance performance under severe or abnormal conditions.

This PTFE-oil, along with Chemlube 645, a synthetic impregnating lubricant is beneficial because of the low evaporation rate that allows bearings in electric motors to last longer. This, combined with oxidation stability and a wide temperature range provide an improved life span for any Triangle bearing. Chemlube also prevents oil seepage to extend motor life.

These additions to Triangle's already high-quality sintered bearings will be invaluable to the automotive and agricultural industries where outdoor environments can pose hazards to bearings and limit bearing life.

These special order bearing balls are available for purchase in high volume.
