TriboShield™ TS161 Self-lubricating Composite Coatings for Low Loads

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
