What Is Gleitmo 603?
Gletimo is a family of products produced by Fuchs which encapsulates lubricants, greases, pastes and dry film coatings. Gleitmo 603 is a dry film lubricant which has provides a transparent, touch proof and abrasion resistant layer. It is most often used for the coating of high volumes of screws, bolts, nuts, fasteners and washers.
What Is The Process?
As with most metal finishing processes, all components must be free of grease, oil and dirt to ensure proper adhesion of the lubricant. The parts are immersed into the lubricant and placed into our spin dryer to properly cure.
What Are The Advantages?
Gleitmo 603 is a clean and non-greasing lubricant, it has a very good surface adhesion with a wide variety of materials. It is environmentally and user friendly and is often used for reducing and stabilising the coefficient of friction on fasteners. Gleitmo 603 is suitable for the finishing of a high volume of small sized components and has an operating temperature range of -40°c and 80°c.
Gleitmo 603 meets the requirements of the automotive industry with a specific friction coefficient of µ=0.10-0.18 for screw lubricants. It has been approved by Volvo, Saab and VW.
