RF85 to reduce friction in molds?

Post by jimeberle » Mon Oct 15, 2018 1:56 pm

Dear MAPP Community,

Has any heard of RF85, an Isotropic Nanotechnology designed to reduce friction? We have an application where we have to run high heats due to the material, and the material is not able to contact ANY grease so we have to run the mold without grease. We are obviously concerned with galling and damage. This RF85 came up in research, but we have no experience with it.

Any information would be appreciated.

Thank you,

We did try it and did not find much benefit from other plating options.
