With US BB 312, we offer you as a user or manufacturer of e.g. valves and fittings a silicone-free special sliding, damping and sealing lubricant based on synthetic hydrocarbon oils and thickened with a thermally very stable silicate for various design elements ranging from valves and fittings to optical equipment.
This specialty lubricant enables good wetting even in narrow lubricating gaps and hard-to-access friction points and does not affect the taste of beverages (e.g. beer). Due to the relatively good viscosity-temperature behaviour of US BB 312, constant operating smoothness is attained e.g. in ceramic discs in single-lever mixers or other tribo-systems in general household applications such as ball and other valves or in optical equipment over a wide temperature range.
While solid lubricants are absent from the product, US BB 312 has a very positive effect on the specific surface pressure at the surfaces of two friction bodies, preventing undesirable jamming, sticking or seizures. The product offers very good adhesion to various materials and their surfaces and does not run off components with unfavourable geometries such as vertical or moving parts or friction point configurations.
