Know More about Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS2) Coating

Among the most widely used types of solid film dry lubrication coatings, Molybdenum Disulfide or MoS2, is widely used and proven effective. Its weak atomic interaction of the sulfide anions and strong covalent bonds within molybdenum makes it a unique element. Relatively unreactive, molybdenum disulfide is unaffected by oxygen and diluted acids.With a graphite-like feel and attributes, MoS2 is considered to be one of the most preferred dry lubricants due to its robustness and low friction properties. Another unique quality of MoS2 is that it doesn’t require any water vapor or moisture to provide results, and this makes it ideal in vacuum applications.
