About MoS2


Molybdenum disulfide is one of the best known solid lubricants. The chemical substance gained notice by aerospace and military applications, bt nowadays it is found in a variety of tribological systems. It is widely used as an additive for greases and assembly pastes, in fluid lubricants like industrial gear oils, in dry solid film lubricants including bonded coatings.

Molybdenum disulfide exists in two crystalline forms, hexagonal and rhombohedral. The hexagonal form is by far the most common and being the only type found in commercial ores. Also, the hexagonal form has been found in synthetic MoS2.

Areas of application

For sliding properties improvement of machine parts, apparates and precision machinery, especially for parts with very strict tolerances.
As an additive for thermoplastics, seals, packages, sintered metals and improvement of extreme pressure sliding properties.
Long term lubrication in a variety of applications.

Benefits of Moly powder

Reduces friction coefficient and wear in a wide temperature range (-290°F to +840°F).
Not electrically conducting.
Not magnetic.
Chemically stable except in contact with halogenated gases, concentrated sulphuric acid or nitric acid.
High effectiveness due to high affinity of MoS2 (Molybdenum disulfide) to metals.
Low friction at high load carrying capacities.
Low consumption because of thin sliding layer.
