Bonded coatings

Clean and long-lasting dry lubrication

Bonded coatings offer many lubrication advantages compared to conventional oils and greases for high temperatures, special hygiene requirements or highly loaded machine elements. Our special tribo-coatings help you optimise friction coefficients and sliding properties of your components and ensure longer lifetimes.

Bonded coatings form a continuous, dry and adherent friction-reducing lubricant layer on your materials and components. While oils and greases may drip off the friction point, with bonded coatings the surroundings remain clean, which is a particularly important benefit when it comes to hygiene and safety requirements. Bonded coatings can also be used at temperatures exceeding 300 °C. Our product range includes bonded coatings for metal surfaces, plastics and elastomers. They help you to reduce component wear and maintenance costs considerably.

Bonded coatings for metal surfaces

Bonded coatings protect metals against corrosion and wear. They are particularly suitable for applications involving extremely high or low temperatures, in contact with aggressive media, subject to UV or x-rays and vacuum applications. These speciality lubricants ensure for example constant friction for the entire lifetime of safety belt components.

Klüber Gleitplan JF 158 A/B is one of our bonded coatings for metal surfaces offering particularly high performance with its formulation. This high-performance bonded coating
can be used for high mechano-dynamic loads as well as with high temperatures.

Bonded coatings for plastics

Bonded coatings for plastics must ensure low friction coefficients to protect reliably against wear; they should also reduce noise and extend the lifetime of components. It is important to select the right bonded coating to ensure good adhesion to your components. Our product range comprises a wide selection of special bonded coatings for plastics like PA, PPS, ABS, PC, POM and PE.

Two examples of our bonded coatings for plastics are:
Klüberplus S 03-105
Klübertop TP 36-1300 A/B

Bonded coatings for elastomers

Compatibility with the elastomer material is an important selection criterion for bonded coatings. They also often have to be resistant to UV radiation and elongation of up to 150 %. Our special bonded coatings for seals and elastomers increase wear resistance and extend the lifetime of these materials. They also improve the optical and tactile characteristics of visible elastomers, reduce noise and facilitate assembly. Our speciality lubricant Klübertop TP 38-901 also offers NSF H1 registration and a DVGW, WRAS and ACS drinking water approval.

All our light-coloured, water-miscible bonded coatings from the Klübertop and Klüberplus ranges can be pigmented with commercially available pastes without performance impairments, allowing you to highlight smaller components and to avoid production errors by clearly distinguishing different parts.

You may find the following bonded coatings for elastomers worth considering:
Klübertop TP 38-901
Klübertop TP 29-1310 N A/B
Klübertop TP 28-1311 N
