Superior products for solid lubrication

Our high-performance solid lubricants based on synthetic metal sulfides are improving the tribological characteristics and the life time of polymer components.

Solid lubricants by Tribotecc are also used in the polymer industry for components in motion exposed to high mechanical loads. They significantly improve friction and wear characteristics and can have a positive impact on both thermal stability and electrical conductivity.

Tribology (Greek) is the science of friction, wear and lubrication of surfaces in relative motion.

The tribological properties of metal sulfides with regard to chemical structure, polarity, lubricating ability and thermal behaviour extend the lifetime of components in motion.

High-performance polymers for a competitive advantage

Thermoplastic tribo-compounds are now used in all areas of technology involving moving parts and including exposure to high mechanical and thermal stress. Tribotecc has developed the perfect products for these areas of application.

Polymers instead of metal

Tribological applications contain mainly high-performance polymers that withstand continuous operating temperatures up to 300 °C and beyond. Replacing metal with polymers saves on both weight and cost. A further point in favor of using components made of tribologically optimised compounds is that they are self-lubricating and maintenance-free – resulting in an environmentally clean solution which further helps to reduce cost. In addition to thermal stability, these materials offer other advantages such as high rigidity, impact strength, pressure resistance, higher resistance to hydrolysis and chemicals, and electrical conductivity.
