Surface treatment eliminates sticking

Modifying elastomer materials

RFN (Reduced Friction by Nanotechnology) is able to modify elastomer materials in a way that not only drastically reduces the coefficient of friction and, consequently, sticking effects, but also keeps it virtually constant over the entire service life of the component.

The majority of armatures in modern solenoid valves are elastomer composite parts. The contact area, contact pressure force, material, chemistry of the surface, and the lubricating media all have a direct influence on the sticking effect, which RFN minimises.
