Dry Film Lubricants

Current Dry Film Lubricant Advantages:

  • Non-migrating
  • Repels dirt and dust
  • Dries to a powdery thin film, no splash or cross contamination of other parts
  • Sacrificial, easily applied release coating
  • Protects against corrosion and rust
  • Hydrophobic (With contact angles 120° to 145°)
  • Chemically resistant
  • Wide service temperature range (-36° to 500°F)

Ultraflon™ Dry Film Lubricant: Ultraflon™ dry-film lubricants are exclusive to Laurel using novel technologies and proprietary ingredients. As well as providing the above characteristics our products also:

  • Are sold as concentrates and may be reduced with addition of the base carrier to suite the application

  • AD Series is non-flammable and VOC free
  • Many products meet the guidelines to FDA 21 CFR 177.1550
  • Repetitive semi-permanency, have seen effectiveness improve up to 90x versus other oils, greases and other dry films
  • Hydrophobic (With contact angles above 165° when air-dried)
  • Heat curing not required, but if brought to temperature (750°F) will form a continuous film
  • Reduced friction and noise
  • Improves abrasion resistance
  • Applicable to a multitude of substrates
