In general consumer and industrial applications, LNP's specialty compounding solutions help achieve functionality and address design challenges, providing products with higher strength, flame retardance, self-lubrication, electrical and thermal conductivity, EMI shielding - the list goes on.
Due to the material's excellent chemical resistance, abrasion resistance, impact resistance and self-lubrication, it is used in diverse fields such as lithium-ion battery separators, industrial materials and medical devices.
It is said to provide self-lubrication, thermal and electrical conductivity, and a gas barrier.
They are warm to the touch and have a self-lubrication function which is triggered by touch - and they speak with a Scottish accent.
A scanning electron microscope (SEM, HITACHI X-650) equipped with an energy dispersive spectroscope (EDS, Kevex Super Quantum) was used to observe the wear surfaces of the pin and disc and the cross section of the self-lubrication layer to clarify the lubrication mechanisms.
Other requirements for this component include high wear resistance, gentle contact with an aluminum shaft, self-lubrication, and no misalignment.
They can also deliver high-performance qualities, such as self-lubrication and energy-absorption.
