Dry Film Lubricants

Solid Film Lubricant Coating

Dry film lubricants or solid lubricants are solid materials that reduce friction between surfaces in many extreme environments including those with high and low temperature, high and low pressure, and high shaft speed where liquids and oils cannot be used. This is an attractive alternative to fluid lubricants for minimizing friction and preventing seizing and galling, especially in high or low temperature environments where fluids may freeze or vaporize. Metal Coatings Corp. offers a wide range of lubricant coating options, protecting items from the smallest fasteners to massive industrial components that require a coating to reduce friction. Our solid film lubricant or dry film lubricant coating operation focuses on three types of lubricating materials:

  • Fluoropolymer coatings are superior dry / solid film lubricants that produce a smooth, hard and slick finish. These coatings are applied using a one coat system that fuses the coating to the substrate for remarkable adhesion. In addition to very low coefficients of friction, fluoropolymers offer exceptional resistance to heat, cold, corrosion and chemical infiltration.
  • 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 the resistance to friction, heat, cold, corrosion and chemicals.
  • Molybdenum Disulfide, also known as moly dry film lubricant, provides friction protection in high load bearing applications. The surface of a moly lube coated item can maintain lubricant qualities up to 250,000 psi. Most MoS2 coatings include additional high-performance resins to enhance bonding to the base metal of the coated part
