Water taps are applied in various areas: in household, industry, gastronomy, sanitary facilities etc. Lubricants that are used for the maintenance and lubrication of these valves have to resist pressure, steam as well as drastic changes of hot and cold water. Simultaneously, they have to avoid wear, cracking or corrosion over a long period of time. Contact with drinking water sets special specifications for the lubricant. LUBCON special lubricants for water taps are resistant to temperature and pressure, have a good sealing effect under humid conditions, are neutral in taste and odour and physiologically inert. The lubricants have the NSF/InS registration for H1-products and are suitable for applications where incidental contact with food cannot be avoided.
