TriboSys™ | Fluorinated Medical Lubricants Improve End-User Satisfaction

Medical equipment and furniture manufacturer improves end-user satisfaction and increases reliability and durability by using TriboSys™ specialty lubricant.

A manufacturer of medical actuating equipment and surgical furniture wanted to utilize a biocompatible, chemically inert lubricant that will keep their surgical furniture and equipment working seamlessly as well as serve as a “Lube for Life”. This request can be met by utilizing TriboSys™ medical lubricants that are PFPE (perfluoropolyether) based, while our greases are fortified and thickened with PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene).

The Challenge:  To Lubricate “Shims” that assist in the Actuating Mechanism of his Medical Equipment and Furniture

Choosing the correct medical lubrication for this application and having sufficient lubrication applied to the actuating “shims” is critical in the workings of this manufactures equipment. The “shims” are pre-lubricated and then placed within the furniture where they are almost never seen again. These shims can wear down over time and cause unwanted premature equipment failure that can directly affect patient care.

The Solution
