Release Coatings: Reduced Friction Coefficient
The application of dry film coatings offers design versatility when traditional lubrication (grease, oil, graphite) is not feasible. Many dry film coatings and non stick coatings include fluoropolymers such as PTFE, FEP, PFA, and PPS suspended in a high performance resin. The benefits of these types of release coatings can offer a reduced coefficient of friction and the reduction or elimination of noise:
- Abrasion resistant coatings
- Chemical resistant coatings
- E-Coat resistant coatings
- Non-stick coatings
- Noise reducing coatings
- Release coatings
- Squeak elimination coatings (NVH & BSR)
- Temperature resistant coatings
- Wear resistant coatings
- Thermal Barrier Coatings
If your parts require lubricant for optimal results, we can apply coating rich with MOS2 (molydisulfide) and graphite.
Several dry film coatings are also known to behave well in corrosive, chemical, and extreme temperature environments.
Friction can be a problem in any industry; it causes excess heat, wear and tear, and can deform parts. Improve your product’s performance through the application of friction reduction coatings like dry film coatings and release coatings.
