SABIC’S new LNP Lubriloy compounds extend portfolio of Non-PTFE lubricated materials

These new grades extend SABIC’s LUBRILOY technology to additional base resins

SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry, announced at MD&M West 2024,a significant expansion of its LNP LUBRILOY portfolio of internally lubricated specialty compounds. The new LNP LUBRILOY products can meet customer demands for high-performance alternatives to materials lubricated with polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), which is a per- and polyfluoroalkyl substance (PFAS). These new grades extend SABIC’s LUBRILOY technology to additional base resins and feature a novel, patented lubrication technology enabling OEMs to help avoid health and regulatory issues associated with materials containing intentionally added PFAS.

“In the face of proposed European and individual U.S. state regulations severely restricting or banning the use of PFAS, customers in the healthcare industry and other markets are seeking self-lubricated solutions that don’t incorporate these chemicals,” noted Ralph R. Buoniconti, SABIC senior specialist, Regulatory. “SABIC has taken the lead in developing multiple new specialty compounds that can serve as alternatives to polymers lubricated with traditional PTFE. By expanding and enhancing our LNP LUBRILOY portfolio, SABIC aims to help customers successfully navigate the changing regulatory landscape for PFAS.”

“SABIC continues to add value to LNP specialty compounds in multiple ways – from expanded choice to improved regulatory compliance,” said Ed Williams, senior product manager, LNP Compounds, SABIC’s Specialties business. “Deep knowledge of polymer chemistry enabled our experts to achieve a milestone by developing a novel lubricant technology and incorporating it into multiple new base resins. Our new-generation LUBRILOY compounds offer customers the opportunity to achieve excellent wear and friction performance while easing concerns about anticipated restrictions on PFAS.”
