Molybdenum Disulfide or MOVIC was born in space applications to contain friction in a vacuum, in the absence of humidity. It is used when the use of traditional lubricants is not permitted (oil, grease, …). It can be combined with other PVD and PaCVD coatings. It is mainly requested on aerospace components, automatic machine components, gears, pump components…
Very low friction coefficient, low deposition temperature
Smooth running, dry and vacuum self-lubricating
Often combined with harder PVD coatings
Molybdenum Disulphide (MoS2)
Friction coeff. against 100 Cr6
Max usage temp.
