Combining the Durability of Chemical Bonding with PTFE
AnoLube 7959 represents a technological breakthrough in lubrication science. It combines the durability advantages of chemical bonding with the exceptional lubrication properties of PTFE in an environmentally safe, water-based, VOC-free, nonflammable formulation.
This specially formulated bonded lubricant deposits a thin, firmly-bonded PTFE dry-film coating on most metals as well as some ceramics and plastics (e.g. polycarbonate). The unique properties of AnoLube 7959 are related to its ability to chemically bond to the substrate surface.
Once AnoLube 7959 has been allowed to cure, it is virtually unaffected by atmospheric and fretting corrosion, solvents, acids, oils, degreasers, aviation fuel, or hydraulic fluid.
AnoLube 7959 has been successfully applied to a variety of materials by spraying, brushing, or dipping. There is virtually no change in appearance following coating.
Excellent Corrosion Protection, Chemical Resistance, and Long Wear Life make AnoLube 7959 unique in comparison to traditional non-bonded PTFE lubricants or impregnated coatings

Film Thickness & Tolerances
Usually engineering tolerances will permit necessary minimum film buildup of .0001 to .0002 inches without interference. If excess buildup does occur and a force fit is necessary, burnishing lightly will assist in mating the parts. The remaining excess will be worn away in the first few cycles of operation. Whenever possible, the proper tolerances should be designed into the part.
- Parts that will be operated in or exposed to corrosive conditions, such as sterilization
- Excellent for use on fasteners, hydraulics, motors, throttles, cables, pulleys, slide mechanisms, hinges, and brake assemblies
- Components that are difficult to reach in-service or are seldom lubricated once they are built
- Where clean operation is desired – AnoLube 7959 will not collect dirt and dust like grease or oil will
- Parts that are subjected to frequent disassembly
- Where ease-of-release is critical (nuts and screws or injection molds)
- Where a protective coating and a sacrificial break-in lubricant is needed
- Parts manufactured from a wide variety of substrate materials including metals, ceramics, and plastics
