LubX C

LubX C


What is the Material: UHMW-PE LubX C is a semi-crystalline material filled with a proprietary lubricant.

Key Material Features: This material is beneficial for being modified to reduce slip-stick, while maintaining many of the properties of other UHMW-PE materials including wear resistance, impact resistance, corrosion and chemical resistance, low friction, and low moisture absorption.

Other Considerations: This material retains key physical properties at low temperatures.
