The base at the Dry lubrication (tribotechnical coatings) are solid lubricants. In the case of dry lubrication, the solid pigments are bound in resin or binder as well as by a solvent. Depending on the requirement profile of the dry lubrication, the most diverse solid lubricant formulations are created.

The Benefits Dry lubrication are among others

  • Very low friction values ​​and low coefficient of friction distribution for high process safety
  • Problem-free loosening of screw connections and the like even after operational use
  • Defined lubrication with high mounting safety

RHENOLUB®

anti-friction coatings based on PTFE, MoS2 and graphite

Bonded coatings based on PTFE, MoS2 and graphite form a firmly adhering, dry lubricating film with excellent friction and wear properties. They enable dry, reliable lubrication where fats and oils are undesirable or impractical.

RHENOLUB® RB

coatings on rubber / elastomers

In recent years, in the use of O-rings ie O-ring coating and seals new demands and trends. Automatic assembly, a lack of silicone and paint wetting freedom, a reduction of friction in dynamic applications, as well as a chemical resistance are increasingly desired.

  • With our PTFE coatings we remain elastic non-stick in the coating of elastomers.
  • Durable, low coefficient of friction ensures safe and lasting Dry lubricating properties.
  • The porous rubber surface is smoothed and smoothed by our coating
  • surface activation with noble gases ensures the best connection to the base material and guarantees consistent quality for your application.
  • Outstanding solvent and UV resistance. This delays the aging process.
  • Operating temperature: from -20°C to 140°C
  • Layer thickness: 10 - 40 µm

RHENOLUB® RB

O-ring coating

By applying a mixture of PTFE and binder resins or a mixture of polyurethane and binder resins, for example in a O-ring coating the surface is provided with an elastic layer with a thickness of about 25 to 35 microns. The compound is firmly adherent to the elastomer and remains elastic. The friction coefficient is significantly improved.

In the last years are characterized by a O-ring coating and new requirements and trends for gaskets. Automatic assembly, a lack of silicone and paint wetting freedom, a reduction of friction in dynamic applications, as well as a chemical resistance are increasingly desired.

  • Automatic assembly:
    The rubber parts must be treated so that they can be separated without problems and that the assembly can be carried out smoothly.
  • Silicone and paint wetting freedom:
    In the painting technique, all rubber parts must be treated so that the adhesion of the paint is guaranteed.
  • Reduction of friction:
    Depending on the application area, stick-slip phenomena and high breakaway forces should be prevented.
  • Chemically resistant:
    Swelling and dissolution of the rubber parts should be prevented.

Benefits

  • permanently low coefficient of friction
  • lasting good To run dry
  • no stick-slip effect
  • improved aging resistance
  • can be used in dynamic applications
  • can be applied to subdivisions of rubber seal be applied
