Anti-friction metal-fluoroplastic tape is a composite multilayer material used in the nodes of mechanisms in which it is impossible to use lubrication or there are difficulties with its supply.
Metal fluoroplast, whose properties allow products to work without lubrication, has three layers. The basis is steel strips, which are covered with a layer of brass or red copper. This is followed by a porous powder layer of bronze granules baked onto a belt, and a fluoroplastic filler that covers the granules with a thin film and fills all the voids between them.
Tape materials can withstand quite severe loads at low speeds , and retain their properties at a temperature of the working environment from -200 to +280 degrees.
Sheet metal fluoroplastic is widely used in the production of equipment for the food and textile industries, machine and aircraft building and many others industries. In particular, the material is used for the manufacture of split, one-piece and open bearings. It allows you to reduce the number of lubrication points in various machines, simplifying their maintenance.
