Dry film lubricants/ solid lubricants are used when conventional oils and/or greases will not provide sufficient lubrication due to extreme operating conditions, i.e. vacuum, extreme temperatures, reduce particulate contamination, infrequent disaasembly, corrosion prevention etc.. Various products made from metal, ceramics and some manmade plastics are coated with dry lubricants for enhanced longevity, efficient use, anti-galling and reduced friction.
There are different ways in which you can apply a dry film lubricant to your component. The application method will depend on the complexity of the component being coated and the desired location of the dry film lubricant.
Different methods that can be used for applying dry film lubricants:
Some of the most commonly used application methods for dry/ solid lubricants are:
