Automotive Interior Trim Coatings

Our extensive product range was specifically developed for the automotive industry and is available in various forms and pack sizes (including ‘easy to use’ applicators), to allow you to apply in hard-to-reach areas. IKV Lubricants offer anti-friction coatings, fluids and noise damping greases in precision oilers, syringes, sprays, bottles and Dabomatic® applicator bottles.

We have something suitable for every squeak or rattle on any trim component and compatible with all substrate materials. IKV also have anti-friction coatings and lubricants for use as slip coats for seals and weather-strips.

IKV’s automotive products allow for ‘lifetime lubrication’ of the part, making re-lubrication unnecessary. Using our products also helps ensure a reduction in component breakdown and costly warranty claims.

While a focus on NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) has reduced road, wind and other traditional automotive noise interference, irritating interior noises from trim interfaces, fascias, door panels, seats and control components have become more noticeable to car owners. Thus, eliminating trim squeaks and rattles has become a major focus for automotive engineers.

At IKV we offer an economical means of eradicating unwanted noise without the need for expensive component alterations or material changes.

The TRIBOFLON, ZAROX and FLUOR coatings and lubricants are easily applied to component interfaces by wiping, dipping, spraying or injecting onto the component during manufacture or whilst on the production line during assembly.

IKV also offer assembly aids, low friction coatings and gels to make your assembly more efficient, reduce the forces required to assemble components and reduce costs.

IKV manufacture something suitable for every squeak and rattle on any type of trim and compatible with all substrate materials (plastics, rubber, metals, leather, etc.) We also have a range of anti friction coatings and lubricants for use as slip coats for seals and weather-strips.

ZAROX OYN 14 is ideal for applications on automotive interior trim where long life and excellent lubricity (a low coefficient of friction) are required. The residual fluid when applied in a thin film offers excellent ‘anti-squeak’ performance, compatibility with substrates and durability during use. The product can be used as a slip coating for weather-strip and sealing systems, glass channels, sunroof and door seals. The ZAROX product can also be diluted in a carrier fluid for easier application. The diluted product is ideal for use in applications where a large number of small components require the application of a thin film of ‘low friction’, virtually invisible fluid.

Bushes, ‘o’ rings, grommets, pivot pins, hinges & springs can all benefit from a coating of this special PFPE fluid both for ease of assembly and improved location and sealing performance.

Application can be either manual or automated by wiping, spraying, dosing or dipping of the components and ZAROX OYN 14 is also available in a 100ml aerosol.

ZAROX OYC 14 SUV has been developed for use in applications where a wide operating temperature range, low friction, non-flammability and compatibility with other materials is required. This SUV product has a UV additive which allows detectability and process control in use.

The product is classified as non-toxic and is biologically inert.

Because ZAROX OYC 14 SUV is essentially inert and non-toxic, it is safe to use with all metals, plastics, leather, elastomers and seal materials and is totally non flammable.

ZAROX OYC 14 SUV is ideal for applications on automotive interior trim where long life and excellent lubricity (a low coefficient of friction) are required. The residual fluid when applied in a thin film, also offers excellent ‘anti-squeak’ performance, compatibility with substrates and durability in use. The product can also be used as a slip coating for weather-strip and sealing systems, glass channels, sunroof and door seals. The addition of the UV additive allows detection using a simple UV lamp and can be used to improve process control.

Bushes, ‘o’ rings, grommets, pivot pins, hinges & springs can also all benefit from a coating of this special PFPE fluid both for ease of assembly and improved location and sealing performance.

ZAROX KYN 142-18 is a special fluorinated coating dispersed in a carrier fluid for ease of application. This high performance coating which is made of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and a special blend of perfluoropolyether (PFPE) fluids is non-flammable, translucent white and odourless whilst offering excellent frictional and lubrication properties. It is totally inert both physically and chemically and is totally resistant to all common solvents and water. Once applied, the carrier fluid evaporates to leave a coating which is extremely thermally stable and has a very wide operating temperature range.

ZAROX KYN 142-18 enables the uniform application of an almost imperceptible but extremely durable thin film which is unaffected by dust and will not run or drip after evaporation of the carrier. The ZAROX is suitable for the lubrication of all mechanisms subjected to aggressive or corrosive conditions, high or low temperatures. It is also suitable for the lubrication of plastic and rubber components due to its universal material compatibility and is ideal as a durable ‘anti-squeak’ coating for automotive interior trim.

IKV FLUOR 32 C is a colourless and odourless perfluoropolyether (PFPE) type oil, which is totally chemically inert and resistant to all common solvents. It does not migrate, and is not sensitive to ultraviolet rays. Even when this product is applied in an ultra-thin durable film, it substantially reduces friction, noise and wear. It is also compatible with all widely used elastomers, plastics and metals.

IKV FLUOR 32 C SPRAY is ideal for the lubrication of all plastics, elastomers, leathers and natural rubbers due to its complete compatibility, excellent durability and an ultra low coefficient of friction.

IKV FLUOR 70 SPRAY is a non-flammable, colourless and odourless perfluoropolyether (PFPE), formulated into aerosol form for ease of application. The product was developed for use as a lubricating anti-friction coating on a wide range of substrates including plastics, elastomers and leather. The product is compatible with all commonly used elastomers, seals, gaskets, plastics and metals, providing a durable, low friction film and eliminating unwanted noise and friction. This colourless lubricant leaves a long lasting lubricating film, which does not stain the substrate.

The IKV FLUOR 70 SPRAY is suited to all types of industry where a high technology lubricant or coating is required. It is extensively used as an ‘anti-squeak’ coating on interior trim, weather-strips and sealing systems within the Automotive industry and is suitable for the lubrication of all bearings, chains and joints subjected to high temperatures, water or solvents.
