Molybdenum Disulfide is a dry film lubricant and is 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 applied as a solid or dry lubricant and offers great corrosion protection against friction, high temperature, and harsh chemicals.

Corrosion Protection: What Are Molybdenum Disulfide Coatings?

Molybdenum disulfide is a naturally mined material that takes a silvery black solid form, similar to that of graphite. The geothermal origin of molybdenum disulfide lends to its durability to withstand heat and pressure. It is also relatively unaffected by dilute acids and oxygen.

When combined with high quality resins, binders, and other water soluble sulfides, molybdenum disulfide provides excellent lubrication and corrosion inhibiting properties.

Molybdenum disulfide is commonly used in parts and equipment with heavy load carrying capacity, subjected to high operating temperatures, and where the coefficient of friction is a concern.

Corrosion Protection Coatings: Characteristics Of Molybdenum Disulfide Coatings

Molybdenum disulfide coatings have unique characteristics that differentiate it from other solid or dry lubricants.

Molybdenum disulfide coatings provide effective lubrication for loads exceeding 250,000 psi, with a low coefficient of friction at 0.03-0.06. MoS2 also remains stable even in the presence of other solvents.

Current research shows no other lubricant aside of molybdenum disulfide coatings that can resist temperatures higher than 350°C in oxidizing environments, and 1100°C in non-oxidizing environments.

Molybdenum disulfide coatings are thermally cured and bonded to the base metal of the coated part. Aside from bonded coating, other recognized MoS2 coating formulations are greases for bearings, splines, and chassis, or as pastes for splines, gears, and universal joints.

Everlube® and Everslik® are some of the most popular molybdenum disulfide-based coatings extensively used by industries for corrosion protection.

Corrosion Protection: Why Are Coatings Important?

Companies can save up to 25 to 30% of annual corrosion costs in the US if they invest in quality coatings. Without proper coatings, corrosion can have damaging effects on valves, motors, pumps, fasteners, switches, belts, and other mechanical equipment.

In infrastructure, the annual direct cost is around $22.6 billion. Corrosion costs total $47.9 billion for utilities such as gas, water, and electricity.

Reduce costs

  • 25% of costs caused by corrosion is avoided by applying existing knowledge on corrosion protection such as coatings.

Reduce accidents

  • Work-related accidents cost the US $250 billion every year. A lot of those incidents are caused by faulty work equipment. If a structure is free of corrosion, the risk for accidents is significantly reduced.

Save time

  • In the event your equipment does falter due to corrosion, repairing it will take time. Once operations stop, the delay in production will also mean profit losses.
