Noise reduction / Noise reducing coatings
Cracking and squeaking can be eliminated with dry lubrication. Dry lubrication can effectively eliminate unwanted noise in moving parts.
The combination of different materials, such as metal, plastic and elastomers, often causes noise. For example, locking springs in automotive engineering are treated with a noise-reducing dry lubrication system made of PTFE so that the ventilation slots do not creak during adjustment. A coat of MoS2 prevents the characteristic cracking noise when heating condensing water heaters. Functional coatings are also used in sensitive areas such as medical technology: For example, dry lubrication with friction reduction prevents unpleasant noises and improves usability of insulin pens. We solve noise issues in harsh industrial applications with injected PU coating products, which are also extremely resistant to wear.
The cases described here are only some of the possibilities. They can be adapted depending on the task – use our individual advice.
