Bonded coatings, also known as anti-friction coatings, offer many advantages compared to conventional oils and greases for high temperatures, applications with special hygiene requirements or highly loaded industrial machine elements. Our special tribo-coatings help you optimise the friction coefficients and sliding properties of your components and ensure longer lifetimes.
Bonded coatings, or anti-friction tribo-coatings, form a uniform, dry and low-friction lubricant layer on various materials and components.
A bonded coating has a composition similar to that of a coloured paint. However, instead of the coloured pigments it contains one or several solid lubricants. The main constituents of a low-friction bonded coating are:
Dry lubrication is always a good choice for industrial applications requiring a clean, for-life lubricant. Bonded coatings can also be used for both particularly low and high temperatures exceeding 300 °C.
Contrary to other lubricants, a bonded coating or anti-friction coating offers the advantage of forming a uniform adhesive layer on the component. The clean lubrication layer, which cannot be washed off and does not have to be renewed (i.e. lifetime lubrication), optimises your production conditions and helps reduce your maintenance costs efficiently.
Our product range includes bonded coatings for metal surfaces and plastics and elastomers.
Bonded coatings protect metals against corrosion and wear. They are particularly suitable for:
These speciality lubricants ensure constant friction for the entire lifetime of, for example, safety belt components.
Water-miscible, thermo-setting PTFE-based bonded coating for low to medium loads
Two-component PTFE bonded coating for metal components
Thermosetting bonded coating for high loads and good corrosion protection
Thermosetting bonded coating
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.
Bonded coatings for plastics should:
Water-miscible PTFE dispersion
Good adhesion and compatibility with the elastomer material is an important selection criterion for bonded coatings. Moreover, the dry lubrication has to be:
Our special bonded coatings for seals (e.g. O-rings) and elastomers increase wear resistance and extend the lifetime of these materials. They also improve the optical and tactile characteristics of visible components, reduce noise, and facilitate assembly.
