NPFC - MIL-PRF-46010
LUBRICANT, SOLID FILM, HEAT CURED, CORROSION INHIBITING NATO CODE - S-1738
|Publication Date:||13 November 2013|
This specification establishes the requirements for a corrosion inhibiting heat cured solid film lubricant that is intended to reduce wear and prevent galling, corrosion, and seizure of metals (see 6.1). For aerospace component applications see 6.9 Notes.
The solid film lubricant covered by this specification is intended for use on aluminum, aluminum alloys, copper, copper alloys, steel, stainless steel, titanium, chromium, and nickel bearing... View More
The solid film lubricant covered by this specification is intended for use on aluminum, aluminum alloys, copper, copper alloys, steel, stainless steel, titanium, chromium, and nickel bearing surfaces (see appendix for application instructions). It is useful under the following conditions:
a. To touch up worn surfaces originally coated with lubricant conforming to MIL-L-46010 or MIL-PRF-46010.
b. For sliding motion applications such as plain and spherical bearings, flap tracks, hinges, threads, and cam surfaces.
c. Where conventional lubricants are difficult to apply or retain, or where other lubricants may be easily contaminated with dirt and dust.
d. Where temperatures may range from -68°C to 204°C (although intermittent exposure to 260°C is acceptable).
e. If mechanisms are operated at infrequent intervals or are lubricated for life.
f. Where long-term corrosion protection is required under static conditions
g. Where a solvent-resistant coating is required.
h. Where a lubricant requires extremely heavy load ability in the initial start-up of heavy loaded mechanisms designed for fluid lubrication.View Less
