Suitable for dry running with a low coefficient of friction, low wear rate, good sliding characteristics, the transfer film created will protect the mating metal surface. Suitable for rotary and oscillating movement, high chemical resistance, lower absorption of water and reduced swelling. Also performs well with lubrication.
