what is cerflon®?

CERFLON® is a ceramic-reinforced fluoropolymer (PTFE). The patented CERFLON® FluoroCeramic technology increases the lubricity and durability for lubricants and coatings! The chemical compound, Boron Nitride, is added to the fluoropolymer PTFE (also known by the DuPont registered trademark Teflon®). Not only is Boron Nitride the only material known to fully reinforce PTFE, in fact, in a 4 Ball Wear Test (an industry standard test that measures the wear protection of a fluid on a metal surface), a base oil compound with CERFLON® scores 15% better than a base oil compound in PTFE alone.

consumer applications

consumer applications

This state-of-the-art lubricant additive reduces friction, as it increases load carrying capacity and durability. In addition, CERFLON® technology provides superior penetration and longer lasting adhesion to surfaces when compared to PTFE alone. CERFLON® delivers superior performance when compared to PTFE, Graphite, Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS₂) and Boron Nitride at no additional cost. In fact, in most cases it costs less!

  • CERFLON® reduces Friction
  • CERFLON® solids are not consumed in use
  • CERFLON® can operate in dry conditions
  • CERFLON® is not black like Graphite and MoS₂
  • CERFLON® absorbs shock and prevents wear through vibration
  • CERFLON® increases load capacity

how is it used?

CERFLON® can add wear resistance, non-stick or low friction benefits to everyday items. Leading brands like Liquid Wrench®, Starbrite and Slick 50 utilize CERFLON® to enhance their formulations.

what people are saying

“For many years, RSC Chemical Solutions, a division of Radiator Specialty Company, has commercialized new lubricants and greases using CERFLON® solid lubricant technology. Our liquid lubricants are offered in both aerosol and dropper-bottle versions under the Liquid Wrench brand.  They are complemented by a full line of Liquid Wrench greases.

Next-generation CERFLON® technology was chosen for these advanced lubricants and greases because of its superior lubricity, stability, durability, and anti-wear properties. Nothing we have seen comes close to CERFLON® performance.”
