Lotrec has an unparalleled level of experience in the field of fluorinated and related materials (such as PTFE), combined with sophisticated binding systems. The Lotrec aim is to offer durable, environmentally friendly products which are easy to work with and compatible with customer needs. LUBKO products are known worldwide in the rubber industry and used widely wherever sticking and release problems occur. It is often possible to choose between solvent and water based formulation depending on the application you are faced with.
Solvent & Water based
The choice involves trade-offs and although water based products are desirable, sometimes there is no beating the performance of a solvent based product.
The solvent based products are formulated for application on cold surfaces. They dry quickly and form a micro thin, durable dry film. Sophisticated binding systems make the products very durable and also easy to use – heating or baking is unnecessary. We also offer a wide range of high tech water based release and anti-tack agents for a variety of uses. It is possible to choose between fluorocarbon dispersions, emulsions or surfactive copolymer types, all silicone free for your particular needs.
Some solvent based and most water based products are suitable for applying directly onto hot surfaces and will instantly polymerise for immediate use. In some cases, combined with minor changes in your application technique, you can achieve the same results as solvent based materials whilst using an environmentally safe product..
Lubko Release coatings/Agents
Unlike older more expensive products where one product is used for all material combinations, the LIP Antifriction Coatings are optimised for application to particular materials/surface types. We appreciate that sometimes it can be process issues that determine which material from the two surfaces causing a noise that is selected for application of a product..
