Lowest possible friction

MicPol® technology

MicPol® technology has been instrumental to Interflon’s worldwide success and is constantly developing thanks to our in-house R&D team of scientists. More specifically, this technology enhances and improves the lubricant’s original properties.

How does it work?

The name MicPol® is a combination of micronisation and polarisation.

Micronisation: as part of a unique process, the components of the lubricant are reduced to such size that they are able to penetrate into all pores and sub-pores of the surface to be lubricated (0.05 microns). This enables them to form a much better homogeneous barrier between moving parts (lubricating film).

Advantages:

  • Significantly less friction
  • Lower energy consumption
  • Smaller CO2 footprint
  • Less wear
  • Less heat generation
  • Longer lubrication intervals
  • Reduction in maintenance costs

Polarisation: during the production process, all components are given a charge. This ensures a unique adhesion to the surfaces to be lubricated. In addition, Interflon has succeeded in charging part of the base oil as well. This is called a bonding bridge and provides better resistance to high pressures as well.

Advantages:

  • Long-lasting lubricating film
  • Longer lubricant service life
  • Better resistance to high pressures
  • Less lubricant consumption
  • Lower environmental impact
  • Longer lubrication intervals
  • Lower maintenance costs

Examples

When the lubricant is developed for applications in humid environments, the MicPol® technology benefits from greatly improved water-repellent properties, thanks to the strong adhesion and the non-emulsification of the lubricant with moisture.

Lubricants that have to withstand high pressures will be able to do so better and longer thanks to the better lubricating film and durable adhesion provided by the MicPol® technology.

In environments where dust, dirt and sand can be released, the MicPol® technology protects applications longer and better against these forms of contamination, as the lubricants are dust, dirt and sand repellent.

Free from PTFE/PFAS: The MicPol® technology is free from PTFE (PFAS) and microplastics and does not fall under the definition of nanotechnology. Moreover, the selected ingredients in the MicPol® technology are 100% biodegradable.
