Dry- Film Lubrication

Xylan coatings impart lubrication without the use of oils and greases. This is increasingly important where cleanliness is needed. The most commonly known dry-film lubricants we use in our coatings are PTFE, molybdenum disulfide (MoS2 or Moly) and graphite, although there are many others.


After application and curing, these lubricants bond to the substrate and form a solid film, which reduces friction and incresases wear life. Dry-film lubricants contain special materials that reduce friction and wear by preventing surface-to-surface contact between mating parts. Their performances vary depending on the specific lubricant used. Some offer excellent lubrication and corrosion protection, while others operate at high temperatures or under high loads.
