Description

This material is internally lubricated. Formulations are specifically designed to be self-lubricating materials (PTFE), offering low coefficient of friction and improved wear-resistance properties. The key features are:


  • Excellent wear resistance
  • Reduced friction, heat buildup, and noise & vibration
  • Improved processability & surface finish on parts
  • Lower power requirements
  • Low maintenance
  • Design flexibility
  • Reduced weight
  • This material data has been provided by M-Base.

    All metrics apply to room temperature unless otherwise stated. SI units used unless otherwise stated.
    Equivalent standards are similar to one or more standards provided by the supplier. Some equivalent standards may be stricter whereas others may be outside the bounds of the original standard.
