AustLon® Black

AustLon® black is highly crystalline and the hardest material. Carbon as a filler improves the manufacturing process reaction properties of AustLon® producing a harder, more wear resistant product. It is well suited to applications that require resiliance to high surface pressures (eg rollers and wire rope sheaves). AustLon® black also has exceptional ultra-violet (UV) properties for long-term outdoor applications.

Carbon acts as a dry lubricant, improving wear properties over AustLon® natural. In addition, carbon improves machinability with very fine finishes achievable.
