Bossard Introduces eco-lubric® as Alternative to Lubricated Fasteners

Bossard continues to grow its offering of fastener product solutions with the introduction of its eco-lubric® brand.  This innovative product solution is a non-electolytically applied tribological dry coating.  It is a thin layered coating with integrated lubricating properties and also offers corrosion protection.

Bossard eco-lubric® is simple, clean, safe and economical.  It is made up of fluoropolymers and organic submicroscopic solid lubricant particles that are dispersed in carefully selected synthetic resin blends and solvents.  The anti-friction coating (AFC) creates a smooth film to balance unevenness of the fastener surface, thereby optimizing friction under extreme loads and working conditions.  The synthetic resin ensures improved corrosion protection.

In salt spray tests performed under EN ISO 9227 NSS, screws and nuts with the eco-lubric® coating indicated corrosion protection of >200 hours (to red rust).  Laboratory tests for friction coefficients, according to DIN 946/ISO 16047, show eco-lubric® provides a tight friction coefficient range of 0.10 – 0.12 µ.

Bossard eco-lubric® is available in black and silver.
