Emralon 330 –

Product Description
Product Description: A coating of Emralon 330 offers clean, dry, long lasting, solvent resistant lubrication for sliding, rubbing or rolling surfaces. Emralon 330 is a resin-bonded PTFE lubricant supplied as one component in ready-for-use form. Its low temperature cure of 150°C (300°F) does not affect heat-sensitive substrates such as light metals, wood, rubber and some plastics. The extremely thin coating of Emralon 330 necessary to achieve maximum lubrication (from 0.0003 to 0.0007 inch, or 0.008 to 0.018 millimeter) allows post-treatment of parts while maintaining original part dimensions without redesign. In many cases, an Emralon 330 coating can replace metal plating or finishing and offers improved performance at lower cost.
