TriboSys™ | Dental Handpiece Lubricant

Dental Handpiece Lubricant

Dental Handpiece Lubricant | Biocompatibility ISO 10993

Few medical applications challenge a bearing lubricant more than high-speed dental handpieces. Rotating at speeds of excess of 500,000 rotations per minute (RPM), these handpieces require advanced lubrication which can not only maintain excellent thin-film strength, but also do not degrade under the immense mechanical and thermal stresses which occur within these handpieces turbines. TriboSys™ oils are the perfect match for your dental handpiece lubricant due to its incredible thermal stability, nonflammable and completely chemically inert chemistry.

Pictured above is a head-to-head evaluation of a popular handpiece lubricant versus Miller-Stephenson’s H1, TriboSys™ fluorinated oil . The handpieces were pre-cleaned with our Surface PrepClean™ MS-255  and lubricated with our specially formulated TriboSys™ oil, then challenged with 3 hours of continuous use at the recommended operating air pressure / rpm. The handpieces were then disassembled and evaluated for wear and deposit formation. The Industry Standard lubricant suffered significant breakdown resulting in large deposit formation and a very noticeable increase in audible noise and chatter during operation. The deposit formation and increased wear led to degradation of the critical o-rings and severely damaged impellers and turbine. 

In contrary, TriboSys™ developed no deposits, the o-rings remained intact, and the impellers exhibited minimal wear. The handpiece also had no noticeable increase in turbine noise and the data clearly shows that Miller-Stephenson’s TriboSys™ Dental Handpiece Lubricant delivers substantially improved operation performance to your dental handpiece. Our lubricant minimizes the unsightly degradation seen with hydrocarbon-based lubricants while maintaining quiet and clean operation. Something both the operator and patient will value.

Product Description | TriboSys™ Oil

TriboSys™ fluorinated synthetic oil lubricants are specially designed for dental handpieces offering superior thin-film protection, lubricity, and chemical stability versus standard hydrocarbon based dental lubricants. TriboSys™ minimizes mechanical wear in all low and high speed handpieces, allowing devices to run longer and quieter while reducing costly turbine repair intervals.
