TS651 is based on high-performance thermoplastics specifically designed for constant low friction from low to moderately high loads in dry or lubricated conditions. Highly suitable for high-frequency / low amplitude (HFLA) applications, particularly in dry conditions. TS651 is part of the standard TriboShield® product range.


  • Solenoid armatures
  • Seat mechanisms, struts and shock absorbers
  • Compressors and radial piston pumps
  • Hydraulic pumps and motors
  • Excellent performance in dry
  • Good performance in lubricated condition
  • Very low stick-slip characteristic
  • Excellent wear resistance up to moderately high loads

TriboShield® coatings are applied directly to the customer’s part and are suitable for complex geometries as well as various substrates e.g. steel, stainless steel, Al, Ti, Mg, etc. They can be used for both interacting surfaces that are in relative motion.
