An Overview of Tungsten Disulfide Low Friction Coatings
Every machine or equipment is prone to friction in its operational life. Friction affects in two ways: it improves performance when applied in the right amount, and causes wear and tear when exceeds beyond acceptable limits. Friction between two parts increases in extreme environments comprising high temperature and pressure. There are certain lubricants that help reduce friction on machine parts, and maintain the optimum performance of machine parts in such environments. These lubricants are known as low friction coatings. Tungsten Disulfide is one such low friction coating, which helps reduce friction between moving parts, and contributes to better service life of the equipment.
