Solid lubricants have the advantages including long life, no contamination and usage in harsh environments that liquid lubricant cannot be used. It has been very well known that MoS2, especially Nano sized MoS2, presents considerable applications in many field. Molybdenum disulphide is the inorganic compound with the formula MoS2 it is relatively unreactive and is unaffected by dilute acids and oxygen. In appearance and feel, molybdenum disulphide is similar to graphite.

Because of the weak van der Waals interactions between the sheets of sulphide atoms and due to their hexagonal lamellar structure MoS2 has a low coefficient of friction, producing its lubricating properties. It is stable up to 400°C even at oxidising environment and In dry oxygen free atmospheres it functions as a
lubricant up to 705° C.

Molybdenum Disulphide (MoS2) coatings are a dry film lubricant through resin bonding method.
Even between highly loaded stationary surfaces the lamellar structure is able to prevent contact. In the direction of motion the lamellas easily shear over each other resulting in a low friction. Because there is no vapour present between lattice plates, MoS2 is effective in high-vacuum conditions, where graphite will not work.

Properties of WCT MOS-Cote:

1. Excellent corrosion resistance compared to plating.
2. Does not pick up dirt/ dust like oils or greases.
3. Can withstand high contact loads(17500 kg/cm2) as compared to conventional oils or greases.
4. Useful for running in and noise reduction.
5. Helps in easy dismantling.
6. Reduces frictional torque.
7. Low coefficient of friction.
8. Enables storage for long periods especially suitable for Marine transportation.

Molybdenum Disulphide Coatings (MoS2 coatings) , also known as Moly Coatings are commonly used in applications where load carrying capacity, operating temperature and coefficient of friction are primary concerns it works best between 200°C to 300°C. Our propriety coating provides effective lubrication in a wide range of loads, in many cases exceeding 250,000 psi. Moly coatings lubricate sacrificially by transferring lubricant between the two mating surfaces, which helps to reduce wear and coefficient of friction.
