Tungsten Disulfide (WS2) and Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS2) are two of the most popular industrial dry film lubricants. Both are similar in terms of appearance, color, and high chemical durability. Both are dry lubricants, non magnetic, and are compatible with liquids such as paint, oil, fuel, and solvents. They can be applied on almost all surfaces for industrial purposes including iron, steel, plastic, aluminum, and copper. While both come from the same chemical family, there are certain differences that make them unique and thus, suitable for different industrial applications.
Differences between Tungsten Disulfide and Molybdenum Disulfide
Though they are similar in many properties, one can find a few differences between the two lubricants that set them apart.
Miscellaneous Advantages of Ws2:
It is obvious to see that tungsten disulfide has a better edge over molybdenum disulfide. Other aspects that make Ws2 more suitable for industrial applications are:
Depending on the application and the expected results, one should always give preference to tungsten disulfide for its strength, versatility, and durability.
