Lubricant, Solid Film
A solid film lubricant renders
a surface permanently lubricated, giving rise to the elimination of wet
lubes. The applications vary as do the coatings. From MoS (molybdenum disulphide)
to PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) otherwise known as Teflon, compunds are
blended to meet specific needs. Low VOC coatings are available in both
organic and inorganic solid film lubricants as well as corrosion inhibitive
coatings. This mil spec establishes the requirements for three types of
heat cured solid film lubricant that are intended to reduce wear and prevent
galling, corrosion and seizure of metals. Compliance: all items must meet
Sections 3 and 5 of the spec. For use on aluminum, copper, steel, stainless
steel, titanium, and chromium and nickel bearing surfaces. Thickness range:
.0003" - .0005"mm. No single reading less than .0002" or greater
Type I: A cure temperature of
300°F ± 60F° and endurance life of 250 minutes.
Type II: A cure temperature
of 400°F ± 60F° and endurance life of 450 minutes.
Type III: A low volatile organic
compound (VOC) content lubricant with cure cycles of 300°F ±
60F° for one hour an endurance life of 450 minutes.
