LubX® C - High Performance Sliding Material
Lion Engineering Plastics now offers LubX® C, a high performance polymer designed specifically for the conveyor, material handling, and automation industries. LubX® C blends UHMW-PE with a proprietary blend of dry-running lubricants significantly reducing the coefficient of friction while maintaining the desired characteristics of standard UHMW-PE. Conveying systems equipped with LubX® C require considerably less energy, while providing the ability to run at higher speeds.
LubX® C is a self-lubricating material transferring microscopic amounts of material to the mating surface. The transfer process creates a film that provides lubrication effectively reducing the coefficient of friction. The initial transfer of material to the mating surface takes place during the break-in period which can range from a few hours to a few days of continuous operation depending upon the speed and load of the application.
It has been especially developed for applications in material handling and automation technologies. Compared with conventional sliding materials, conveying systems equipped with LubX® C need considerably less energy. The considerably lower coefficient of friction of LubX® C eliminates the possibility of the slip-stick effect (back sliding) almost completely and thus increases process stability.
- Coefficient of friction up to 75% less than standard UHMW-PE
- Outstanding dry-running speeds and properties
- Energy saving
- FDA Compliant
- Noise reducing
- Eliminates the slip-stick effect (back-sliding)
- Specially designed to slide against steel and acetal chains
