Molybdenum Disulfide Is Used in Machinery Equipment as Lubricants

molybdenum disulfide image When machinery equipment is in motion, friction and wear are almost inevitable on the surfaces between relatively moving parts. The use of lubricants is an effective technical measure to control friction, reduce wear, and maintain the original accuracy of machinery and equipment.

Reasonable selection of lubricating materials can control the friction of the two moving surfaces, slow down the wear and protect them from damage. The surface film formed by the solid lubricant of molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) has this function.

MoS2 is the main component of molybdenite, which is a black solid powder with metallic luster. It is a very important solid lubricant, especially suitable for high temperature and high pressure. The powder has the advantages of good dispersibility and non-sticking. It can be added to various greases to form a non-sticky colloidal state, which can increase the lubricity and extreme pressure of the grease. It is also suitable for high-temperature, high-pressure, high-speed and high-load mechanical working conditions to extend the life of the equipment.

Place the solid lubrication on the surfaces of the two friction pairs of machinery equipment, and rely on the mechanical action between their friction surfaces to form a layer of molybdenum disulfide surface film with a high degree of adhesion attached to the solid surface, which can reduce or eliminate the direct contact between the two surfaces, reduce the friction and wear of the moving pair surface in the mechanical equipment, and extend the service life of the equipment.

The special MoS2 for coatings provided by Chinatungsten Online has a finer particle size, reaching sub-micron level, more uniform distribution, more concentrated particle size, and has good dispersibility and surface activity, which is suitable for uniform coverage on the surface of the grinding wheel.
