Tribotecc® Ferrostar is a synthetic ironsulfide. Due to its significant tribological properties, it is an ideal solid lubricant.

The key benefits of Tribotecc® Ferrostar as an additive are:

  • A significant reduction of coefficient of friction and wear
  • An improvement of emergency running properties
  • An improvement of sliding, rotating friction and durability
  • The formation of stable layers of different contact surfaces over a wide temperature and pressure range
  • High thermal conductivity
  • Improvement of the heat distribution in the friction interface
  • Mild abrasive characteristics - cleans surface at low speeds and low loads
  • Excellent tribological characteristics
