January 21, 2019 – The Holland-based manufacturer Interflon has announced its range of high-performance lubricants is now available to paper and pulp manufacturers in the Canada and the U.S.

The company has developed lubricants that are especially well suited to endure sawdust and paper dust contamination, high bearing and shaft speeds, high pressure and corrosion or washout caused by prolonged exposure to water.

Interflon’s lubricants include:
● Grease LS2: A heavy-duty grease with exceptional water resistance, good for low-speed, high-load-bearing applications
● Grease HTG: A high-temperature grease with extreme pressure resistance
● Food Lube G150: A heavy-duty, multi-purpose oil for heavy loads and wet conditions (also food-safe)
● Fin Super: A dry-film spray lubricant for medium loads and small-pitch chains
● Paste HT1200: A ceramic paste for assembly with excellent anti-corrosion and anti-galling properties, good to temperatures of 1200° C/2100° F

MicPol, the lubricant technology developed by Interflon, derives its name from the process of micronization and polarization that its solid lubricant particles undergo. Interflon lubricants with MicPol work by bonding magnetically with surfaces, which the company says creates a stronger and longer-lasting adhesion than can be provided by viscosity alone. Solid lubricant particles are micronized to as small as .03 microns, or more than 1,500 times thinner than a human hair. This allows them to penetrate and creep effectively, even into sealed bearings, where they can rejuvenate existing lubricant and add to the life of the seal.
