Anyone who has seen the Griswold family’s descent into Christmas chaos knows exactly how well anti-friction products work on woks that have been repurposed as sleds! Perhaps this is the scene that the engineers at WEICON GmbH in Westphalia had in mind when they developed the new PTFE Fluid. Even though HANNOVER MESSE 2017 is taking place at the wrong time of year to test the new product in this way, there are still plenty of other ways that the benefits of PTFE Fluid can be put to good use before winter comes around again.
PTFE is the abbreviation for polytetrafluoroethylene, commonly known under the DuPont brand name Teflon. The PTFE contained in PTFE Fluid is what gives it its strong friction-reducing effect. The grease-free dry lubricant adheres to all metal, plastic and wood surfaces, forming a coating that repels dust, dirt and water and is resistant to oils, greases and many chemicals. The added value it offers compared to similar sprays lies in the special WEICON PTFE Fluid formulation and its NSF registration, making it suitable for use as permanent lubrication in many sensitive applications including in the food, beverage, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. As a result, the product can also help to improve workplace health and safety.
