R1 Wurks AAFC Advanced Anti-Friction Coating

R1 Wurks has introduced its AAFC – Advanced Anti-Friction Coating.  Apply coating to ball joints, hinge pins, steering bushings, gears and anywhere reduced friction is desired.  R1 AAFC is a liquid formula that effortlessly evolves into a dry film coating upon application. This remarkable lubricant is precision-engineered to eliminate friction and reduce wear.  It can be applied using direct or wicking methods.  With the direct method you brush R1 AAFC directly onto the surface, especially suitable for areas such as spur and pinion teeth.  For the wicking method use a loaded brush to dab R1 AAFC onto assembled parts, allowing it to effortlessly wick into the desired area. After drying, a thin layer of dry lubrication will be left behind.  This method is excellent for tasks like lubricating ball cups, suspension balls, hinge pins, steering bushings, and anti-roll bar components. The application possibilities are endless.  AAFC boasts an unrivaled ability to create an ultra-thin protective shield, fortified with the exceptional properties of MoS2 (Molybdenum Disulfide) and WS2 (Tungsten Disulfide).  This results in an unbeatable low-friction coating that redefines the landscape of high-performance lubrication.
