LOLON® F is a plastic that suits a broad range of applications. Some of the main features of LOLON® F is its high flexibility and good chemical resistance. While the previous LOLON® plastics we’ve looked at have good operating temperature ranges, LOLON® F stands above the rest. LOLON® F can operate from -65 degrees F up to +230 degrees F. The range of temperatures for LOLON® F makes this plastic one of the most versatile options on the market. LOLON® F is transparent in color and will meet the Military Specification MIL-W-83420.
LOLON® G is an exceptionally tough plastic with excellent bearing characteristics, abrasion resistance, and chemical resistance. A unique feature of LOLON® G is despite its toughness; the plastic remains lightweight. LOLON® G is most popular due to its ability to withstand extremely high temperatures. The plastic operates between -20 degrees F to +250 degrees F and has heat light stabilizers built in to improve weatherability further. LOLON® G is naturally black in color and meets three Military Specifications: MIL-C-23812, MIL-W-216332, and MIL-C-2193.
LOLON® H is known across the plastic-coated cable industry for its toughness. It is a natural bearing material and, after being applied to a steel cable, provides a flexible bearing surface. LOLON® H is ideal for flexible pins such as those used in belting. The operating temperature range for LOLON® H is -40 degrees F to +250 degrees F with a heat stabilized formulation. The natural color of the plastic is milky-off-white. LOLON® H will meet Military Specification MIL-M-20693, Type 1.
