Molybdenum disulfide coating with our own technology
Molybdenum disulfide is the inorganic compound with the formula MoS2.This black crystalline sulfide of molybdenum occurs as the mineral molybdenite. It is the principal ore from which molybdenum metal is extracted. MoS2 is relatively unreactive, being unaffected by dilute acids and oxygen. In its appearance and feel, molybdenum disulfide is similar to graphite. Indeed, like graphite, it is widely used as a solid lubricant because of its low friction properties and robustness.
Molybdenum disulfide (MoS2 ).Like graphite, MoS2 has a low friction coefficient, but, unlike graphite, it does not rely on adsorbed vapors or moisture. In fact, adsorbed vapors may actually result in a slight, but insignificant, increase in friction.
For metal parts used under the most extreme conditions (temperature and pressure), the anti-friction coatings of choice are based on MoS2, which is also known as moly. They typically include other high-performance resins that ensure strong adhesion of the MoS2 to the metal surface. Moly coatings do not attract or retain dust, dirt or moisture and provide resistance to corrosion and chemical attack. They can be air dried or cured with heat. MoS2 can also be combined with other ingredients such as chrome and electroless nickel to provide additional wear or corrosion protection. When combined with chromium nitride (CrN) or titanium nitride (TiN), MoO2 coatings form a hard film with very low surface energies that are ideal for use on stamping tooling and wear components in assembly and packaging machines.
