Price:
Chemical Name:
Dicronite DL-5
Synonyms:
Tungsten Disulfide

Detailed Product Description:

 

Dicronite® was originally developed in the sixties for aerospace

 

applications as a dry lubricant where it would be exposed to deep

 

vacuum or liquid oxygen.  It is referred to as a modified tungsten

 

disulfide coating and exhibits several desirable dry lubricant properties.

 

 

The Coating:

 

Dicronite coating is a thin, uniform, chemically inert , non-toxic,

 

coating with high lubricity.  It is non-magnetic, contains no organic

 

binders, solvents, or adhesives and has high load capacity.

 

 

It is intimately attached to the substrate using molecular bonds

 

and acts like a permanent mold release.  It will not rub off or transfer.

 

 

Typical Applications:

 

  • Vacuum equipment wear surfaces

     

  • Mold release in plastics industry

     

  • Actuators, bearings & bushings in aircraft industry

     

 

Performance Parameters:

 

  • Composition:                                        Modified Tungsten Disulfide, lamellar

     

  • Hardness:                                              Defined by substrate hardness

     

  • Appearance:                                         Silver gray on application—rhodium when burnished

     

  • Molecular weight:                                248.02

     

  • Density:                                                 7.4 grams/cc

     

  • Coating thickness:                               0.5 microns (20 microinches)

     

  • Coefficient of friction:                         0.03

     

  • Service temperature range:                 -300°F to 1,000°F (to over 2,400°F in vacuum)

     

  • Chemical resistance:                            Chemically inert

     

  • Application temperature:                    Ambient

     

  • Load capacity:                                      350,000 psi

     

  • Substrate materials:                             all metals, most plastics, glass, porcelain, fiberglass

     

  • Adhesion:                                             mechanical/molecular interlock
