FluoroCeramic (PTFE and Boron Nitride) Powder

Made with patented Cerflon® technology, CER-FCP9010G grease grades are Boron Nitride reinforced
fluoropolymers. These FluoroCeramic powders combine the desirable properties of both a
fluoropolymer (PTFE, or, polytetrafluoroethylene) and Boron Nitride to provide desirable properties
unequaled by each individually, for a variety of applications.

Hexagonal Boron Nitride (hBN), commonly referred to as “white graphite”, is an advanced synthetic
ceramic. hBN is a non-toxic, dielectric, white powder with excellent thermal conductivity, oxidation
resistance and lubricating properties, even at elevated temperatures above 600 °C. This unique
combination of properties makes it a superior solid lubricant with extreme thermal stability.

PTFE, a white fluorocarbon solid at room temperature, is a high-molecular-weight thermoplastic
polymer consisting wholly of extremely strong bonds between carbon and fluorine. Chemically inert
and hydrophobic in nature, PTFE is a superior dielectric and extremely lubricious.
Boron Nitride is the only material known to fully wet PTFE. When introduced in the matrix of a
fluoropolymer, such as PTFE, it reinforces the fluoropolymer. This results in a blend with significantly
higher durability and wear properties, even at elevated temperatures, while preserving and
supplementing other critical properties such as dielectric constant and chemical inertness.

CER-FCP9010G grease grade FluoroCeramic powders are PTFE and hBN at a more economical 90:10
ratio, while still providing a wide application range for greases and other solid lubrication
