Sandstrom Military Specified Coatings
The following products are included on the Qualified Products List for Military and Aerospace agencies.
Each batch undergoes full conformance testing for conformance to the listed specification.
9A – AS5272C Type II – Formerly MIL-L-46010 Type II (PDF – 26KB)
Heat Curing solid film lubricant – 9A is the original product developed for the military for weapons support. It offers superior wear life, corrosion protection and chemical/fluid resistance.
Waterborne Heat Curing solid film lubricant – 099 is a waterborne, lead-free offset to our 9A. Both products provide unsurpassed wear life, corrosion protection and chemical/fluid resistance.
LC-300 – AS5272C Type I – Formerly MIL-L-46010 Type I & MIL-L-8937 (PDF – 27KB)
Heat Curing solid film lubricant – LC-300 cures with a lower temperature than our 9A, making it ideal for use where a 400F bake schedule would be detrimental to parts. LC-300 offers long wear life along with excellent corrosion protection and chemical/fluid resistance.
28A – MIL-PRF 46147D (PDF – 35KB) – Newest lead and antimony-free technology
Air Dry solid film lubricant used for parts too large to be baked or parts that cannot be subjected to bake schedules of 9A, 099 and LC-300. Ideal for field touch-up of parts originally coated with 9A, 099 and LC-300.
Hi-T 650 – PWA550U (PDF – 15KB)
Versatile Air Dry or Heat Curing solid film lubricant offers higher operational temperatures.
#329 – MIL-PRF-81329D (PDF – 26KB)
Heat Curing solid film lubricant for extreme environments (orbital satellites and space vehicles).
#103 (PDF – 13KB)
Moly/PTFE lubricant provides unique wear properties, exceptional chemical/fluid resistance and corrosion protection over all metals.

Sandstrom mil-spec Coating Technologies is lacquer-like thin films containing lubricating powders of PTFE, graphite, or molybdenum disulfide (MoS2). Using MoS2, their dry film lubricants prevent atmospheric and fretting corrosion, as well as galling or seizing. They are high load-carrying (exceeding 100,000 psi) and exhibit both low friction and long wear life while operating at temperatures from cryogenic to higher heat.
- Heat Cured CoatingsHeat-cured coatings from Sandstrom are virtually unaffected by corrosion, acids, oils, or degreasers. Additionally, once cured, they do not re-soften at elevated temperatures; their mechanical properties are retained. The materials are applied by spray, dip-spin, or brush and will adhere to metal surfaces properly cleaned with the specified pretreatment.
- Air Dry CoatingsWhen curing by heat is not an option, but the performance properties of a bonded dry film lubricant are still desirable, Sandstrom dry film lubricants are also available in air-dry. Note: Sandstrom heat-cured coatings are superior to their air-dry options.
