NATURE’S SUPERLUBRICANT

Molybdenum disulfide is a naturally occurring black colored, solid compound that feels slippery to the touch. MolyB excels as a lubricating material due to its organically layered structure and low coefficient of friction. The interlayer structure creates a sliding motion that dissipates energy when a shear stress is applied to the coating. The shear strength of MolyB increases as the coefficient of friction increases, creating a “superlubricity”.

MolyB has a load carrying capacity of 250,000 psi and stability up to 350 C. And works better under high pressure and low speed, where galling is the principal reason for failure.

MolyB coating is used as a coating on rifle barrels, allowing bullets easier passage causing less barrel fouling and retain ballistic accuracy much longer.

MolyB comes in a matt black and high gloss black coating.
