Known as Flexcoat D2K100, this patented coating has beendeveloped by Busak+Shamban to provide OEM’s the option oftrouble-free seal installation in automated assembly operations.With particular focus on elastomer O-Rings, the coating, unlikemany other friction-reducing applications offered, is flexible,allowing the seal to retain its inherent flexibility and sealingcharacteristics in operation.
The low-coefficient of friction and flexibility provided by thenew coating, dramatically reduces required installation forces andthe prospect of assembly and seal installation failure. Seal damageis minimised and, supplied dry, packaged in a clean environment,the Flexcoat O-Rings can be direct loaded to assemblypositions.
Typical applications for the new Busak+Shamban FLEXCOATO-Rings are on automotive fuel injectors systems - to reducefitting forces and offer increased ease in automatedassembly.
Flexcoat D2K100 is suitable for operational temperatures from-40°C to +200°C and is unaffected by most fluids, including thoseused in automotive component manufacture, fuel, oil, grease andcleaning media etc.
