Lubricity

With a 0.2 coefficient of friction, diX coatings provide dry-film lubricity on the surface of silicone and rubbers, without compromising its original elasticity. It is widely used for catheter and guide wires in the medical industry..

The coated silicone sample in the foreground exhibits a lower coefficient of friction than the uncoated sample behind it. When the glass pane is lifted, the coated sample begins to slide first.
