Dry Lubricant Coatings

Dry Lubricant Coatings

Premium Products offers a water-based, environmentally friendly dry lubricant coating. The dry lubricant coating can be applied through a spray or a dip/spin process to fasteners such as nuts, bolts, and hinges. Once applied and the coating cures, it forms a solid protective layer that reduces friction, much like conventional lubricants. However, dry lubricants differ from conventional lubricants because dry lubricants still provide lubricity when conventional ones are inadequate. In higher temperatures, extreme or oxidizing environments, or under heavier loads, dry lubricants are able to function at a better capacity than liquid lubricants. Dry lubricant coatings offer protection by providing corrosion and abrasion resistance. Dry lubricant also protects fasteners by providing chemical resistance, therefore preventing parts from rust. Dry lubricant coating prolongs the life of fasteners and parts through its protective properties by guarding it from problems related to oxidation, but also by enabling the parts to move freely, without friction. It minimizes breakage and eases release of mating parts.
