coating that is slippery to the flesh

coating that is slippery to the flesh

Greetings, I am a newbie with a tough one. Seeking a spray on coating - could be a clear coat but prefer a pigmented paint - that is slippery to the flesh. It is hard to think of uses other than the product I need it for. Tried anti-graffiti paint which was pretty good but short of what I am looking for. Mouse pads and touch pads are interesting but I don't know how that is done or if they are ever sprayed on. Needs to be very durable in that it can withstand regular rubbing (like a mouse pad) and retain its slipperiness for years with only cleaning maintenance. Could be up to 5 mils thick. Any thought or advice is appreciated. Thanks, Steve

RE: coating that is slippery to the flesh

Hi and thanks. It is a carbon fiber composite. I don't know exactly how high a temperature it could bear - I guess it depends on the binder used. Most are cured around 250 degrees I think and some as high as 350?
