Micro Surface Corporation started out in 1919 as Timesaver Products Company Inc., makers of TimeSaver Lapping Compounds. It served manufacturers for the military and automotive industries with worldwide distribution of its product. Over the years many uses have been found for the compound including lapping bearings, machine tools, molds and more. In the early 1980s, the company was renamed as Micro Surface Corporation to add new technologies to its manufacturing arsenal. Seeing the need to apply dry lubricants in the hi-tech industries, Micro Surface successfully was able to transfer lubricant technology developed by NASA to commercial applications. Since then it has expanded its offerings to include WS2 coating services. The WS2 product was originally developed for the Mariner Space Mission as a permanent lubricant, today it is used on countless applications from gears and bearings to molds and robotics automation.
Micro Surface Corporation is now offering a dry film lubricant that is compliant with MIL-PRF-46010 and AS5272. This coating has been proven effective in numerous military, aerospace, and industrial applications and offers lubricity and corrosion protection.
