Solids in lubricants generally are used in low-speed and/or high-load applications where countermoving surfaces are in direct contact with one another.
Solid lubricants come in many forms with varying degrees of lubricity and load-carrying capability. These include molybdenum disulfide, graphite, PTFE, oxides and others to meet the demands of a given application.
Nearly every lubricant family utilizes solid lubricants – some more than others. Our expert team of lubrication specialists can help you select the best MOLYKOTE® Specialty Lubricant for your tribological needs.
