We think tribologically in advance.

PTFE is found in use everywhere where components make contact with one another and move relative to each other. We are therefore dealing with friction, lubrication and the wear of surfaces. Being an engine or gearbox, linkage or pump, water tap or motorway bridge: all technical equipment requires bearings and seals that establish sliding contacts.

The key factor to quality with tribological applications is the careful selection of the material: then, only a system that perfectly matches one-another guarantees an optimum function at minimum wear. PTFE has many valuable properties, but sometimes one has to expand its spectrum: the right compounding enables special mixtures for special applications.

In addition to the standard compounds PTFE / Glass, PTFE / Carbon, PTFE / Graphite and PTFE / Bronze, we can offer any desired mixtures.
