Belesta, a division of Belzona Polymerics Ltd. of Harrogate, England, offers lubricants to reduce friction on extruder gearboxes, extending their life.
A poorly lubricated gearbox can consume up to 10 percent extra power, Belesta said.
The lubricant concentrates are added, at 5 percent, to the host lubricant. The lubricant is electronically bound to the metal surface in a mono-molecular layer.
