Dry / Solid Film Lubricants

Dry / Solid film lubricant coatings are desireable alternative to fluid lubricants for minimizing friction and preventing seizing and galling, especially in high or low temperature environments where fluids lubricants may freeze or vaporize.

Applied Total Control offers the following solid film lubricant or dry film lubricant coatings:

Xylan
Xylan Coatings solve the problems created when the ideal material for use in engineering construction has the wrong surface properties. Parts made from materials with the optimum strength, weight and cost may corrode, seize or gall. Xylan coatings provide a working surface, tailored to the application.
Xylan is a combination of low-friction fluoropolymer compounds in a matrix of strong, stabile organic polymers. This fluoropolymer coating exhibits excellent surface wear characteristics along with lubrication, nonstick and release properties and resistance to friction, heat, cold, corrosion and chemicals.

Molybdenum Disulfide
Molybdenum Disulfide coatings, also known as Moly Coat, are dry film lubricants that provides friction protection in high load bearing applications. The surface of a coated substrate can maintain lubricant qualities up to 250,000 psi.
Moly Coat are commonly used in applications where load carrying capacity, operating temperature and coefficient of friction are primary concerns. Moly coatings lubricate sacrificially by transferring lubricant between the two mating surfaces, which helps to reduce wear and coefficient of friction.
Moly coats are a combination of molybdenum disulfide lubricant and high performance resins. Molybdenum coatings are thermally cured and thoroughly bonded to the base metal of the coated part.
