DuraGlide® Aerosol Mold Release
Available from MicroCare Corp
The DuraGlide® dry lubricant spray is a medical grade PTFE micro-dispersion lubricant in an aerosol package. Ideal for medical mold-release and component assembly applications, this lubricant is sprayed to leave a thin, uniform, dry, PTFE lubricant coating over almost any surface. This low-cost, non-migrating inert coating imparts ultra-low friction surfaces and minimal sticking problems common in low-speed, light-load applications.
Formulated specifically for medical device mold-release and component assembly uses, the DuraGlide® aerosol is sold ready-to-use and calibrated with a concentration of PTFE solids optimized for most applications. For best results, apply a thin mist. The coating will dry in seconds and can be seen on the part. A single treatment is adequate for most applications. Parts can be heat-fused if greater coating durability is desired.
