USES AND DESIGN APPLICATIONS

  • In extreme temperature environments.
  • In cases where dust harms the operation of equipment.
  • Exposure to liquids which leach out oils or grease.
  • In the processing of materials that may be contaminated.
  • In cases where retention of liquid lubrication is difficult.
  • In cases requiring operation following long storage periods.
  • Bearings subjected to wide temperature ranges. For examples: electronic devices, textile machinery, door hinges, catches and locks and window sliding surfaces, airborne mechanisms and moving parts of ovens furnaces and kilns.
  • Equipment exposed to an environment reactive to conventional lubricants. For example: bearings operating in contact with plating solutions, steam, water, detergents or gasoline.
  • Bearings and other mechanisms adjacent to surfaces or materials which must not be contaminated.
  • Mechanisms that operate infrequently or that are kept in storage for emergency use. For example: automatic switching devices in communication equipment, bomb triggering mechanisms, liquid rocket systems, emergency service devices and a variety of guidance and control devices for missiles.
  • Bearings, clutches and other parts that are exposed to friction and are located in inaccessible areas that make lubrication retention difficult.
  • Where dust collection is objectionable. For example: textile machines and precision machinery.
  • To supplement fluid lubricants. For example, the alleviation of sticking valves, clutches gears and the reduction of piston and cylinder wall wear
  • As a separating agent and a high pressure lubricant in metal working and molding applications

APPLICATION

Surface Preparation: Surface to be coated must be chemically cleaned. It must be free of oxides, soils, greases and other contaminants. Cleaning and surface preparation prior to the application of any TECHLUBE is extremely important to form a proper bond and maximize the corrosion resistant properties of the TECHLUBE .Metal Surfaces: Metal surfaces (with the exceptions noted) may be cleaned using an industry-approved vapor degreasing method, preferably one using Perchlorethylene. Other methods include a solvent wash with IPA,Acetone or PTC-2001C. Do not use acids to clean carbon steel. Follow the cleaning with a heavy Alkali bath or phosphate conversion coating such as PT-402 –Acid Etching Primer. If the parts being sprayed will be under unusually harsh conditions and an extra strong bond is required, apply the PT-402 Wash Primer prior to applying the lubricant. Please refer to PT-402 technical data for application instructions.

Application Method:

This coating may be applied by spraying or dipping. Spraying should be done in a suitable area having adequate ventilation. Care should be taken that no other materials be sprayed in the immediate area atthe time of application to avoid contamination.

  • Spray Application: Concentrate shall be mixed with the PT-1002 at a ratio of approximately2 to 3 parts of paint to 1 part solvent. The amount of solvent depends on the type of application and/or equipment. The mixture should be such that the spray goes on the part thin and wet. A hairy or granular spray usually signifies too little solvent. Each coat should be sprayed at 1 mil thick. No less than two coats should be applied to the parts, more coats can be applied if necessary.
  • Dip Application: Concentrate shall be mixed with the PT-1002 at a ratio of 2 to 4 parts solvent to 1 part concentrate. Under thinning for dip applications can cause excessive build up.

CURING

  • After applying the Microfine TECHLUBE let parts air dry for 20 minutes
  • For all alloys or types of steel, aluminum, titanium, copper and cast iron bake for 1 hour at 450°F
  • The minimum temperature to cure this material is 325°F for 2 – 3 hours
  • Baking temperatures are below those temperatures which would affect any prior heat treatment

After removal from the oven, cooled, parts should be visually inspected for blistering, discoloration and full coverage. Parts that require close tolerances shall be inspected for mil thickness of the coating. Coatings should be dark gray to black in color. A sufficient number of parts shall be checked for adhesion by firmly applying pressure sensitive masking tape to the surface and removing it abruptly. No flakes or large particles of the coating shall adhere to the tape. A faint uniform covering of powdery materials which occasionally may adhere to the tape is not to be considered cause for rejection.

NOTE: Application of PTI products requires the use of all OSHA approved safety equipment, including proper ventilation. Additionally, PTI products require the recommended temperature/humidity conditions and film thickness ranges for optimal performance. The material, hangar, and aircraft skin temperatures should be no lower than 75⁰ F / 25⁰ C before, during and after application.
