Low friction and high lubricity

AustLon®’s high compressive strength, hardness and low co-efficient of friction result in a high PV (pressure.velocity) value. The addition of highly developed fillers such as the oil in AustLon® Oil Filled material significantly reduce surface contact between components reducing friction which reduces wear.

AustLon® also allows small particles to be embedded into its surface without causing damage to the mating metal components. The natural bearing qualities of AustLon®, combined with its excellent wear resistance and high lubricity make it an ideal material for components which need to operate even without lubrication, in a corrosive environment or immersed in a fluid or gas.
