INOX-M12 PTFE SUPA GLIDE is a fast drying, resin bonded polytetrafluoroethylene dry film lubricant for the coating of timber, metal, plastic, rubber, glass and most other surfaces.
It is designed for low-friction, light load repetitive stresses that allows moving parts to wear longer, work harder and require less maintenance and has applications where other conventional sintered PTFE coatings cannot be considered.
The surface to be coated must be clean, dry and free of any contaminants such as dust, oil, grease or powder. Information on surface preparation for more critical applications is listed below. Once the surface area has been prepared, spray a liberal coating on the area you want to lubricate and then allow time for the carrier and propellant gas to evaporate. Curing times are listed below.
- WOOD – Sand lightly and wipe clean
- STEEL – Degrease or sandblast
- STAINLESS STEEL – Degrease or sandblast
- ALUMINIUM – Degrease, sandblast or anodize
- COPPER ALLOYS – Degrease, sandblast and/or acid etch
- RUBBER, PLASTICS, GLASS – Clean with a solvent that will not affect the substrate
INOX-mx12 PTFE SUPA GLIDE will cure at room temperature. Coatings are touch dry in about 5 minutes, dry enough to handle in 20-30 minutes depending on the film thickness. Optimum hardness for the best lubrication performance is 2 hours. You have to allow at least 2 hours from application before use. Overnight curing will give the best long term results.High humidity may increase opacity or blush and exposure to strong sunlight may cause darkening, but these will not affect the coating performance.
