In the pneumatic grease project, new types of grease are to be developed that are not only characterised by a constantly low breakaway force, but can also be used universally due to their food compatibility and formulation without paint-wetting impairment substances ("PWIS-free").

For this purpose, the cooperation partner, Chemie-Technik GmbH, develops greases which are then tested at the IMA for their friction properties. Therefore, a test rig is being specially developed and set up with which the frictional force of pneumatic seals can be examined after variable idle times.
