The LUVOCOM 8000 series of PEEK wear compounds from Lehvoss North America incorporates proprietary additives that further elevate the wear resistance of PEEK compounds. Though it is well known that in thermoplastic materials PTFE lowers wear rates, it is not always recognized that it also decreases mechanical properties of the compound. Through research and testing, Lehvoss designed the LUVOCOM 8000 product line to have a tribological profile significantly surpassing previously known materials while also preserving mechanical performance. In one case study, thrust washers and bushings were tested with results showing up to three times lower wear rate of the LUVOCOM 8000 series when compared to an industry standard PEEK compound lubricated with PTFE.
