Self-lubricating special polyethylene
LUBMER™ has excellent self-lubrication, abrasion resistance and moldability. LUBMER™ is used for a wide range of applications for automotive, electronic and industrial parts.
Abrasion resistance, stability, food safety as well as noiseless, electrical insulation and sliding properties.
Gear, bearing, key plungers, rollers, automotive parts (seat belt through anchors, assist straps), housing equipment parts, electronic / electric parts, extrusion profiles and additive for various polyolefins to improve abrasion of base resin
- Basic information
- Details of characteristics
- Details of applications
LUBMER™ is a specialty polyethylene developed by Mitsui Chemicals’ original polymerization technology. LUBMER™ has outstanding sliding properties, abrasion resistance and moldability. Especially, LUBMER™ is used for a wide range of applications for soundproofing parts of office automation equipment, automotive, electrical and electronic parts. In addition, LUBMER™ is making a significant contribution to the development of building materials, mechanical parts, etc.
LUBMER™ shows about the same coefficient of friction comparable to that of fluoroplastics.
Self-lubrication / Abrasion resistance
By far better than ordinary polyethylene, polyacetal and nylon.
LUBMER™ has stability to various chemicals.
Some of the LUBMER™ grades meet food hygiene requirements.
LUBMER™ is used for soundproofing gears and rollers.
LUBMER™ has excellent electrical insulating properties comparable to those of other polyolefins.
Facsimile equipment parts, bearings, toner scraper holders, word processor key plungers, assist traps, seat belt through anchors, glass-run channel, rollers for automotive massagers, aqueduct parts and bearings for video camera.
