Significant performance increase of bonded coatings

New graphite-containing speciality lubricant for lifetime lubrication of many components

Munich, 21 December 2012 - Klübertop TG 05 N is the new high-performance bonded coating made by Klüber Lubrication offering outstanding dry lifetime lubrication. Besides its excellent wear and corrosion protection properties, the graphite-containing product Klübertop TG 05 N offers low friction coefficients, which is a particular advantage when used with oils or greases or during machine start-up. The new bonded coating supports these operations very well and contributes to increased component lifetime. Klübertop TG 05 N is temperature-resistant up to 300 °C.

The new bonded coating shows its high performance both in dry and sandwich lubrication. A further advantage of Klübertop TG 05 N is its electric conductivity enabling discharge in the event of lightning strikes, which is an important feature for its application in casings of outdoor flow meters, e.g. in chemical plants or on ships.

"The development of Klübertop TG 05 N focussed primarily on optimising wear and corrosion protection", explains Rudolf Zechel, Product Manager for bonded coatings and pastes at Klüber Lubrication. "Furthermore, the product is formulated without N-methyl-pyrrolidone (NMP), making its handling and storage considerably easier compared to similar products."

Klübertop TG 05 N is already successfully used in fixing clamps and catch springs of household appliances and will replace the formerly used product in door hinges, sintered bearings, plain bearings and screw connections in automotive and measuring instrument applications soon. The new bonded coating is also suitable for many components used in bearing technology, electrical and precision engineering and the textile industry and in particular for applications in which oil or grease contamination must be avoided.
