In the previous post, we discussed the steps to apply molybdenum disulfide using the burnishing, and vapor deposition methods. In this post, we will describe the steps of the next two molybdenum disulfide coating processes. These are the methods most commonly used in industrial applications.
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.
