Lapping of cast iron is a process that needs to be done with utmost care. The lapping compound should be such that it does not imbed at all into the metal surface. Thus, it is advisable to choose a lapping compound that is free of charging abrasives such as aluminum oxide, emery, silicone-carbide and diamond or diamond like lapping compounds.
Timesaver lapping compounds are ideal for applications wherein you do not want the compound to imbed into the metal surface. There is no emery, silicone-carbide, aluminum oxide or any other charging abrasive present in this compound.
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.
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.

When it comes to industrial coatings, nothing compares to Tungsten Disulfide. Also known as WS2, tungsten disulfide is a thin, dry film lubricant coating, and is known to be one of the most lubricious materials in the world.
Are you looking for a dry film lubricant to protect your components against friction, wear and corrosion? Are you finding it difficult to choose from the range of lubricants available in the market? Well, the answer is extremely simple. The best dry film lubricant for your industrial applications is tungsten disulfide.
Tungsten disulfide (WS2) is one of the most popular materials that are used as industrial lubricants. The product has been used in a variety of applications including aerospace, automotive, military, and even medical. Marine and automotive industries have been two sectors that have really benefited from the use of the lubricant. Research is now being done on how tungsten disulfide can be used in other processes.
