LubX® C is a specially formulated high-performance material that is a mixture of UHMW Polyethylene with added solid lubricants to reduce friction. LubX® C is known for its high impact strength and is also light in weight, resistant to staining, and has a low moisture absorption rate.
LubX® C has been developed with great care to minimize the friction, but also with consideration to the wear properties against the sliding partner. Additionally, compared to conventional sliding materials, conveying systems equipped with LubX® C require considerably less energy! See the chart below for a sliding friction comparison on LubX® C against acetal, steel and PET.
This makes LubX® C great for use in applications & industries such as:
