LUBRICATING WITH ELASTOMERS -- THE CONCEPT AND TWO RAILROAD APPLICATIONS
The paper introduces the concept that elastomers are lubricants. The concept is developed by considering the nature and behavior of elastomers, then comparing this to the properties needed in a lubricant. A section on the general design of elastomer parts for lubrication is given, followed by two design examples. The examples are elastomeric parts designed to overcome lubrication problems on railroad freight cars.
