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 applications.
