Supporting Industrial Machinery and Automated Equipment with Dry Film Lubricants

Automated equipment has become a necessity in industrial manufacturing processes. Dry film lubricants can be used to enhance the performance of automated equipment to ensure that they maintain efficiency in terms of manufacturing speed and uptime. Micro Surface has been supporting the automation industry for years by providing dry film lubricants in a wide range of applications.

Dry Film Lubricant Features and Benefits

Our dry film lubricants are designed to optimize your manufacturing processes by increasing equipment productivity, reducing waste and extending service life and maintenance cycles. Dry film lubricants can be applied to any metal substrate as well as some plastics and other materials.

There are a variety of dry film lubricants that be used in industrial machinery and automation applications. Depending on the specific application, a dry film lubricant can be selected based on its unique properties:

  • Tungsten Disulfide: Very low outgas in vacuum, extremely low coefficient of friction, extreme temperature stability, will not affect most machine tolerances at 0.5 micron thickness (0.00002”), meets AMS2530 and DOD-L-85645A Type I specifications
  • Molybdenum Disulfide:
    • When applied per AMS2526 is a thin lubricant similar to tungsten disulfide. Good in sliding applications and in vacuum
    • When applied per MIL-PRF-46010 and/or AS5272 exhibits superior corrosion resistance and lubricity
  • We can work with your lubrication engineer to find the right dry film lubricant for your application

Benefits Include:

  • Non-stick properties
  • Permanent dry lubrication
  • Improve wear and abrasion resistance
  • Chemical and corrosion resistance
  • Eliminate need for conventional lubricants
  • Enhance performance of conventional lubricants
  • Stability at cryogenic and high temperatures and pressures
  • Prevent galling and fretting


  • Gears
  • Pistons
  • Gaskets
  • Bearings
  • Linear Bearings / Ball Bushings
  • Joints and Splines
  • Sliding Mechanisms
  • Assembly Fasteners
  • Pins, Taps and Machine Tools
  • Injection Molding Cores, Inserts, Pins and more
