Lubricant, Solid Film

Solid film lubricant is used to prevent galling and seizure of metals. Lubricant covered by this specification is intended for use on aluminum, copper, steel and stainless steel, titanium, and chromium and nickel bearing surfaces. The process is useful where conventional lubricants are difficult to apply or retain, or where other lubricants may be easily contaminated. It is also beneficial for sliding motion applications such as plain and spherical bearings, flap tracks, hinges, threads, cam surfaces, etc. The cured lubricant film is highly resistant to conventional fluid lubricants. The process should not be used on materials adversely affected by exposure to temperatures of 302F for 1 hour; on bearings containing rolling elements; or where there is potential contact with liquid oxygen.
