Lubricious Coating Made for Surface Protection


A new protective coating offered by WirxGroup LLC (Winlock, Washington) offers consistent lubricity in a nonsacrificial formula, according to the company.

The NanoCeramic coating is silicone-based, WirxGroup noted, with a number of protective properties to allow for consistent, long-term friction reduction and protection against corrosion in critical joints.

Lubryx’s core features include: air or heat curability, ability to fill microscopic pits and voids for high coverage without appreciable load, and UV stability, along with non-reactivity and non-conductivity.

The coating’s formula factors friction-reducing components into its ceramic chemistry for nonsacrificial permanence. In turn, consistent lubricity prevents seizing and galling for aluminum, carbon, alloy and stainless steel, among other metals, according to WirxGroup.

The coating’s strength comes from its silicone base, which provides high levels of abrasion resistance and extreme hardness that does not deteriorate, according to the company. Lubryx’s protective benefits include low VOC, water repellency, as well as defense against acid rain, chlorides, solvents, dust, dirt, static, fuels, oils and more.

According to the company, Lubryx is in the final stages of beta testing and will be on the market soon.
