Elastomeric sealing F-treated FKM elastomers offer a permanent low coefficient of friction surface that cannot be washed away. FEATURES & BENEFITS Material

Elastomeric sealing

F-treated FKM elastomers offer a permanent low coefficient of friction surface that cannot be washed away.


  • Material properties are protected beneath the surface of molded shapes
  • Stable properties; little difference between original and aged elastomer

Air mist lubricant

Synmist is a high film strength, synthetic lubricant used in centralized air-mist lubrication systems.


  • ISO grades 32, 46, 68, 100, 150, 220, 320, and 460 available
  • Reduces bearing vibrations; is compatible with most synthetic and all mineral air mist oils
  • Atomizes to eliminate large, unwanted wet oil droplets
  • Rapidly demulsifies from water to displace moisture from bearing surfaces
  • Does not cause wax buildup or congeal at low temperatures

Infrared lubrication system

PurgeX infrared lubrication system combines PurgeX positive displacement pump with programmable logic and infrared sensing for dispensing the right amount of lubrication accurately on a moving target.


  • Up to 0.012 in.2 fluid output
  • PLC specifies frequency and duration of fluid application; infrared sensors verify target
  • Tested to 360 million cycles
  • Syncronizes fluid dispensing with speed and number of chain links
  • 3-way solenoid, PLC, pumps, and 24-Vdc power supply contained in NEMA 12 enclosure

Electrical connector lubricant

RheoTemp 761G performs above the polyalphaolefin (PAO) heat barrier of 125°C at a cost less than silicone or fluorinated oils.


  • Reaches temperatures of 175°C
  • Reduces connector insertion force
  • Maintains electrical resistance after 10 cycles of mating and unmating
  • High wear protection and material compatibility; low water washout and oil separation
