FluoroCeramic (PTFE and Boron Nitride) Powder
Made with patented Cerflon® technology, CER-FCP8020G grease grades are Boron Nitride reinforced
fluoropolymers. These FluoroCeramic powders combine the desirable properties of both a
fluoropolymer (PTFE ) and a ceramic, 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-FCP8020G grease grade FluoroCeramic powders are PTFE and hBN at an 80:20 ratio, offering a
wide application range for solid lubrication in more viscous carriers, such as greases.
