Duplex Synthetic Graphite / Molybdenum Disulfide Dry Film Lubricant


CT8101 is a two layer dry film lubricant that uses lubricating pigments that include synthetic graphite and moly disulphide. The material is designed to operate up to 1200° F. in air and provides very low friction and high load carrying capacity. This material, once properly applied and cured, is not sensitive to the hazards of handling and installation. It is not sensitive to changes in temperature and is ideal for applications where components start at room temperature and ramp up over 1000° F. Typical coating thickness is in the range of .0004 to .0001”.
