Characteristics

TS161 is an engineering thermoplastic based composite coating composed of a primer and a top coat. Specifically designed for low friction at low loading conditions, it presents excellent wear resistance as one of its standout features. TS161 is part of the standard TriboShield™ product range.

 

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS
  • Conveyor deflectors
  • Rod guides
  • Automotive seat belt sliders
  • Sliding guides for packaging lines
UNIQUE CHARACTERISTICS
  • Low friction in low loading conditions
  • Excellent wear resistance under low loads
AVAILABILITY

TriboShield coatings are applied directly to the customer’s part. Suitable for complex geometries and a wide range of substrates eg steel, stainless steel, Al, Ti, Mg etc. Can be used for both interacting surfaces that are in relative motion.

COATING ADVANTAGES

  • More compact design
  • Less complex system assembly
  • Reduced weight
  • Increased surface durability

* Dependent on contact pressure, sliding speed and contact geometry.

** Your specific food contact condition may require additional approval.
