PTFE is an abbreviation for polytetrafluoroethene which is a polymer made from the monomer tetrafluoroethene (CF2CF2). It is a thermosetting plastic with a high melting point that is used to produce ‘non-stick’ surfaces on pans and to coat bearings amongst other things.
PTFE greases are high performance, specialist greases with PTFE solids.
They are highly specialised and have:-
Our PTFE sprays include IKV-FILMSEC 1010, IKV TRIBOFOOD X-TREME TF SPRAY & ZAROX OYN 14 SPRAY.
Our IKV TRIBOFOOD X-TREME TF SPRAY is a special multi-purpose synthetic fluid in spray form & contains PTFE.It is ideal for use in the food processing industry and has NSF H1 Certification for incidental food contact. It contains micron-size PTFE to provide superior lubricating capacity and to reduce the friction between contact surfaces. It is for use on lubrication points requiring a clean, white, odourless lubricant, prevents corrosion and can be used in wet environments.
It is 100% synthetic and can be used in operating temperatures from -45°C to 200°C. It also has excellent di-electric properties and is considerably more efficient than conventional products.
IKV-FILMSEC 1010 is a dispersion of PTFE (tetrafluoroethylene telomers) in isopropyl alcohol. After evaporation of the solvent, it remains as a white and waxy lubricant, which with its high content in fluorine, exhibits the following properties:
– Outstanding lubricity
– Excellent thermal stability
– A high degree of chemical inertness
– Non flammability
– Excellent nonstick and separation qualities
– Reduces the friction coefficient of the substrate
To obtain a stronger adhesion of the coating to its substrate, it is ideal to oven bake the treated part for 5 to10 minutes at 305 to 310 °C.
IKV- FILMSEC 1010 may be applied pure or diluted, depending on the desired effect. The product is also available in aerosol form.
Typical applications include:
– Release of plastics and rubber parts
– Sizing of sintered metal parts
– Dry film lubrication
– Metal working (extrusion, rolling, cutting)
– Additive in waxes and polishes for skis, auto bodies, and boat hulls
– Masking (protecting surfaces) for paint or varnish application
– Additive for elastomers and paints.
ZAROX OYN 14 Spray – your ideal solution for a wide range of applications that demand exceptional performance in diverse conditions. This versatile spray is designed to perform in extreme temperatures, ensuring reliable functionality in challenging environments.
Also available as a fluid that can be diluted for easy application on small components, such as bushings, o-rings, grommets, pivot pins, hinges, and springs.
