Molybdenum Disulfide Coating, Thin Lubricating Film Impingement Applied
|Publication Date:||1 January 2013|
This specification covers requirements for a coating consisting of finely-powdered molybdenum disulfide in a heat-resistant inorganic binder applied to parts.
This product has been used typically on metal parts and selected nonmetallic materials requiring a coating under 0.0002 inch (5 μm) thick (See 8.4) for reducing friction or wear, or for minimizing galling, but usage is not limited to such applications.
This lubricating film may be applied to surfaces of ferrous and nonferrous metals and alloys, thermoplastic and thermosetting polymers, and rubber (O-rings, seals, etc). Aluminum, magnesium, and ferrous alloys, other than corrosion-resistant types, either coated or in contact with other parts having this coating, may be susceptible to corrosion.
Safety - Hazardous Materials
While the materials, methods, applications, and processes described or referenced in this specification may involve the use of hazardous materials, this specification does not address the hazards which may be involved in such use.
