ERTALON® LFX Key Facts
ERTALON® LFX is an internally lubricated cast nylon, specifically developed for unlubricated moving-parts applications. The evenly dispersed non-toxic and “free” lubricant, built-in during the casting process, remains an integral part of the material and gives an enduring and considerable improvement in the sliding properties.
Comparative bearing tests on steel mating surfaces have shown that ERTALON® LFX outlasts conventional cast nylon on wear resistance by a factor which can be as high as 10, and perhaps even more important, the coefficient of friction is reduced by 50% or more.
Key Features of ERTALON® LFX
- Lower and constant co-efficiency of friction
- Lower heat build-up, hence higher load carrying capacity (can double the PV-limit)
- Longer life
- Less stick-slip
- Better machinability
