I'm confused about what fluoropolymers do, and why they supposedly make lubricate products better? It's colorless so it'll reduce stains on paint, but does it make a lubricant work better?

Good edit. I still don't understand the question but its better. ;) – The Evil Greebo Nov 6 '13 at 16:36
The article you link to specifically says the structure of fluoropolymers contributes to their non-stick and friction reducing properties, and discusses their other benefits in lubricants, so what is the question? – bib Nov 6 '13 at 19:31
