Summary

LUBMER™ is a special UHMWPE material developed by Mitsui Chemicals’ original polymerization technology. LUBMER™ has outstanding sliding properties, abrasion resistance and could be injection moulded.

Especially, LUBMER™ is used for a wide range of applications, specially in automotive (gearing and actuator Noiseless and Grease-Free, Thrust Bearings...), electrical and electronic parts.
In addition, LUBMER™ is making a significant contribution to the development of building materials, mechanical parts, etc.

・ Sliding properties
LUBMER™ shows about the same coefficient of friction comparable to that of fluoroplastics.
・ Noiseless properties
LUBMER™ is used for soundproofing gears and rollers.
・ Self-lubrication / Abrasion resistance
By far better than ordinary polyethylene, polyacetal and nylon.
・ Chemical resistance
LUBMER™ has stability to various chemicals.
・ Food Safety
Some of the LUBMER™ grades meet food hygiene requirements.
・ Insulation properties
LUBMER™ has excellent electrical insulating properties comparable to those of other polyolefins.
・ Compounding
LUBMER can be compounded with various polymers like PP, PA6, PA66, PBT and POM to improve their abrasion resistance drastically.
