Quniton®

Minnesota Rubber and Plastics uses a proprietary technology to provide ultra-low friction and low stiction of rubber compounds. Quniton® is a highly lubricious material that provides a permanent chemical modification to the elastomer, which cannot be altered. Quniton® has minimal effect upon the elastomer’s original and aged properties.
