The base at the dry lubrication (tribotechnical coatings) are solid lubricants. In the case of dry lubrication, the solid pigments are bound in resin or binder as well as by a solvent. Depending on the requirement profile of the dry lubrication, the most diverse solid lubricant formulations are created.
The advantages of dry lubrication include
- Very low friction values and low coefficient of friction distribution for high process safety
- Problem-free loosening of screw connections and the like even after operational use
- Defined lubrication with high mounting safety
Bonded coatings based on P, MoS2 and graphite form a firmly adhering, dry lubricating film with excellent friction and wear properties. They allow for dry, reliable lubrication where fats and oils are undesirable or impractical.
