McLube® offers specialty PTFE dry-film lubricants for a variety of industrial, commercial, and military applications. Our PTFE lubricants dry quickly to form a thin, low-COF film that provides long-lasting friction reduction and protection from contaminants and moisture. McLube’s water and solvent-based PTFE dry lubricants are ideal for metal-metal, metal-rubber, and metal-polymer interactions. McLube® also engineers custom PTFE dry-film lubricants for customers looking to achieve process-specific goals.

McLube® Oil-free Protection

Oily lubricants tend to cause fouling at the application site because they are thick, messy, and attract dirt, dust, and grime. Buildup of oils and contaminants at the application site requires continual cleaning and more frequent application of the lubricant. Our oil-free, PTFE dry film lubricants repel contaminants on a molecular level to prevent fouling of the application site over time and improve plant cleanliness. McLube® dry film lubricants will also protect metallic surfaces from rust and corrosion to extend the effective lifespan of equipment and help it run more efficiently. McLube® may add further corrosion-inhibiting additives to any of our dry film lubricants for application in humid conditions.
