Dry Lubricants
Dry lubricants – the alternative for special application cases

Dry lubricants are materials which despite being in the solid phase are able to reduce friction between two surfaces sliding against each other without the need for a liquid mediaum. Dry lubricants can be classified into solid lubricants in powder form, ceraceous sliding films and inbonded coatings containing solids. Bonded coatings are solid lubricants, usually MoS2, graphite or PTFE that are incorporated into an organic or inorganic binder. In order to allow distribution of the bonded coating, a solvent which evaporates during the hardening or drying time is added. After thorough preparation of the surface, coating is carried out by means of immersion, spraying or painting.

Product name Description Fields of application Attributes Approvals Advantages and Benefits
OKS 500 MoS2- Bonded Coating, Heat Curing
