What is Molybdenum Disulfide coating


What is Molybdenum disulfide?

Molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) is an inorganic metallic compound composed of molybdenum and sulfur. It occurs naturally as the mineral molybdenite, the principal ore of molybdenum. This compound is silvery black in appearance and is relatively unreactive with other chemical elements. In terms of appearance and texture, molybdenum disulfide is similar to graphite. Like graphite, molybdenum disulfide is renowned for its low coefficient of friction, durability, and robustness. This low friction is due primarily to weak Van der Waals interactions between the sheets of sulfide atoms. This characteristic makes molybdenum disulfide a widely used material in dry lubricants. Molybdenum Disulfide is a dry film lubricant widely used as a friction-reducing additive to coatings, greases, and waxes. Molybdenum disulfide coatings or MoS2 is an inorganic compound used as a coating solution for critical parts and equipment. Because the compound is unreactive to most corrosive agents, MoS2 is widely used in corrosion management. Molybdenum disulfide is typically a solid or dry lubricant and offers great corrosion protection against friction, high temperature, and harsh chemicals.


What is Molybdenum Disulfide coating

A Molybdenum Disulfide coating (also known as Molybdenum Disulphide, MoS2, and Moly) is one of the most commonly used solid film lubricants in applications where load-carrying capacity, operating pressure, and coefficient of friction are primary concerns. Its lamellar lattice molecular structure helps it to create a permanent bond with the surface it is applied to. A MoS2 coating is a dry film lubricant that works by intrinsic slippage of the sulfur atoms (weak Van der Waals forces). This helps reduce wear on the parts and improve the coefficient of friction. The coating is made up of high-purity molybdenum disulfide powder. Our Molybdenum Disulfide coatings do not require thermal curing and are thoroughly bonded to the base of the coated part.


What applications is this type of coating used for?

Uses for MoS2 coatings generally include applications that require a lubricant that does not react when in use and thus remains sturdy. The compound is also unreactive to most corrosive agents and is thus widely used in applications that require corrosion management. The coating provides only a minor delay in corrosion; care should be taken to select the proper substrate for the application.
