Our Dry & Solid Film Lubricants Meet Most Requirements

Dry Film Lubricant CoatingSun Coating Company applies dry film and solid film lubricants to meet most automotive, MIL-SPEC and aerospace requirements.

Sun Coating has the capabilities to coat very large parts, to the smallest of components. We can handle your coating needs for prototypes through full production. Advanced formula coatings are being tested and evaluated every day for a number of potential applications.

Quality: Certified to ISO-9001:2105

We apply dry film lubricant coatings qualified to military and aerospace specifications, as well as global OEM car and light-duty truck platforms. We maintain the highest quality standards and are ISO 9001:2015 certified. 

Dry film lubricant coatings (also known as solid film lubricants) can be applied by spray or “dip-spin”. We have the capability of coating complex and recessed surfaces, prototypes to production-scale quantities. These special-formulated dispersions of solid lubricants incorporate PTFE, graphite, and molybdenum disulfide, also in different combinations, to protect surfaces from corrosion, wear, and friction.

Benefits of Using Dry Film Lubricant Coating

In the harshest mechanical environments, dry film lubricants bring many benefits, including:

  • Noise reduction coating
    Suppress unwanted noise, squeak, or rattle between two rubbing surfaces metal or plastic by overcoming excessive friction and the “stick-slip” phenomenon.
  • Abrasion resistance coating
    Reduce wear between two contacting surfaces, extend performance-life through dry lubrication, lower friction.
  • Low friction coating
    Dry film lubricant coatings will lower the coefficient of friction of your design (static/dynamic), reduce force relating to speed and load, and allow more consistent motion.
  • High-temperature tolerance coating
    Dry film lubricants work at elevated temperatures, making them safer than using wet lubricant oils or grease.
  • Reduce fretting and galling coating
    Extend service life, protect from wear and corrosion-fretting associated with vibration or other repeated relative motion. Reduce galling (adhesive wear) between sliding surfaces often like materials.
  • Corrosion resistance coating
    Dry film lubricant coatings also help protect against corrosion and resist many solvents, chemicals, and fluids.

Dry (Solid) Film Lubricants Meet Many Requirements

Dry film lubricant coatings, when properly cured resist wear, have a high load-carrying capability, protect from chemicals and corrosion, are serviceable from cryogenic temperatures to extreme heat.

  • Why Use Dry (Solid) Film Lubricants?
    ● Operate in corrosive atmospheres.
    ● Use where load-bearing pressures exceed oil or grease.
    ● Cleaner environments. Dry film lubricants coating will not pick up dirt or debris.
    ● Use in highly stressed sliding, high or low speed, oscillating movements, highly stressed friction, high load-bearing capacity.
  • Alloy Compatibility
    Dry film lubricants are compatible with / adhere to both non-ferrous and ferrous metals. Design specifications may require a specific alloy, heat treat, or surface pretreatment.
  • Working Temperature Range
    From cryogenic to extreme heat, physical properties will vary with product dry lubricant(s) and a high-performance polymer binder.
  • Surface Pretreat Requirements for Base Metals
    Proper pretreatments ensure adherence for long-term performance and may be governed by automotive specifications, military coating specifications, or aerospace specifications from the end-user.
  • Masking
    Masking requirements (coating voids) should be identified in your drawing.
