IKV TRIBOLINE PE 1731 is a gel containing synthetic oil with a very high viscosity index. Its thickener gives this gel a remarkable thixotropic effect at all temperatures. It is compatible with ALL types of gaskets and seals, fluorocarbon, EPDM and NBR— up to 80C.
IKV TRIBOLINE PE 1731 has been developed as an assembly aid for rubber parts but can also be used for other materials including some plastics once compatibility has been ensured. Its structure eliminates its risk of dripping and permits the precise application of small amounts in the entry points, which is then spread to the interior when the two parts are intersected and slid together. IKV-LUB PE 1731 is also suitable for the release of hoses from their chucks after vulcanisation.

IKV FILMSEC 1602 is a PFPE fluid which enables a friction reducing coating to be applied totally dry with no risk or running or post-operative staining. Temperature range -40 to 260°C.
IKV FILMSEC 1610 is a PFPE fluid with PTFE thickener enables a friction reducing coating to be applied totally dry with no risk or running or post-operative staining. It enables easier fitting because of micro sweating of perfluorinated fluids. Temperature range -40 to 260°C.
IKV ASTARGEL 1790 is a special water based lubricating clear fluid gel that considerably reduces the coefficient of friction between plastic or rubber parts and the supports on which they are mounted to aid assembly. It is designed to minimise dripping avoiding the risk of streaks or running when applied. After the water content ‘carrier’ has evaporated, the product turns into a dry, translucent and uniform film with the necessary properties to help ensure the part does not move further. Once set this film is dry to the touch and will not attract dust or debris. It also does not contaminate other surfaces which come into contact.
IKV ASTARGEL 1790 can be used for all plastics, rubbers and metals to facilitate mounting and ensure free fitting without creating stresses and stretching within the part. The product can make the fitting of components considerably easier, reducing the required force and helping reduce the likelihood of operator RSI in repetitive or difficult operations.
IKV ASTARGEL 1790 is best applied pure using a soft brush, sponge or other similar applicator, excess product can be removed before drying using a wet sponge. It is designed to ensure maximum safety for the user: it contains neither solvents nor petroleum products, it does not release Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).
