Molybdenum disulfide is a solid film lubricant, which can be used in the manufacturing of different types of industrial products. These include gear oils, pastes, paint like coatings and other grease based lubricants. Also known as MoS2, the lubricant can perform in applications with wide temperature ranges and pressures, while maintaining its basic structure. For these reasons, MoS2 is often designed and used as a protective coating for metal substrates. In this post, we provide information regarding the various molybdenum disulfide coating processes.
Types of MoS2 Coating Methods
Molybdenum disulfide is known for its strength and lubricity. MoS2 has a layer-lattice structure that bonds easily to metal substrates. This allows an applicator to apply the coating in different ways. Essentially, four methods can be used to apply MoS2 onto a substrate. The steps of each process are described in the points below, for the best results we recommend using a professional applicator.
These are the first two molybdenum disulfide coating processes, which can be used to apply this versatile lubricant onto a substrate. In the next post, we shall elaborate the points of the remaining two methods. In the meantime, if you have requirements for MoS2 coating please contact us. AMS2526, MIL-PRF-46010 and AS5272 are some of the specifications we apply the coating to.
The US Department of Homeland Security has deemed certain types of businesses as “essential” businesses. Microsurface Corporation is one of the businesses deemed as “essential” based on supporting customers in “Critical Infrastructure Sectors” as determined by the federal government. These sectors include: Critical Manufacturing; Government Facilities; Nuclear Reactors, Materials, and Waste; Defense Industrial Base; and Communications.
