Fujifilm to Showcase Innovative “Soft Matter” Lubricant Reagent at STLE 2015 Conference in Dallas


Valhalla – WEBWIRE

Greenwood, S.C., March 12, 2015 – Expanding upon its industry-leading liquid crystal coating technology, FUJIFILM Manufacturing U.S.A., Inc.  will showcase a unique, environmentally friendly “soft matter” lubricant reagent to attendees at the 70th annual Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers (STLE) Meeting & Exhibition, May 17-21, 2015 at the Omni Hotel in Dallas at booth #528.

The Fujifilm material, called FFJ-1, is a derivative of Fujifilm’s industry-leading Liquid Crystal coating technology for flat panel displays including televisions and tablets. Fujifilm’s researchers modified the original technology to produce a novel lubricant that achieves low friction and high wear resistance without environmentally harmful elements such as heavy metals, sulfur and phosphorous.

Data from Fujifilm comparison tests with conventional materials have shown that FFJ-1 can improve performance, providing lower friction under high temperature and high shear with a smaller wear scar.  

“The STLE Annual Meeting is the industry’s most respected venue and a must-attend event for lubrication professionals seeking technical information about the latest products and services,” said Todd Croker, President of FUJIFILM Manufacturing U.S.A., Inc.  “We are eager to meet with industry leaders and share results of our materials comparison tests. We will discuss the wide range of applications of this product as a friction modifier or as an anti-wear additive to motor oils, industrial oils, automatic transmission fluids and a variety of other applications. For many of the show’s attendees, STLE represents their number one, on-the-job problem-solving resource.”
