McLUBE’s MoS2-900 is a water-based dispersion of molybdenum disulfide and adhesion promoters. The dry lubricant coating resulting after evaporation of the water has excellent adhesion to most substrates and exhibits a low coefficient of friction, high load-carrying ability, and good durability.
It’s offered as a general purpose, dry lubricant for metal forming and a range of other industrial uses, including: all types of sliding surfaces; mechanical parts; threaded connections, conveyors, guide posts, O-rings, seals, sleeve bearings, spline drives, and others. It’s also recommended as a run-in lubricant. Surfaces to be coated should be clean and dry. Any conventional application method can be employed – brushing, dipping, wiping or spraying.
It is effective for preventing seizing, galling, and scoring, and for protection against extreme pressure. It performs well as a lubricant under dusty or moist conditions, and protects against corrosion.
McLube MoS2-900 contains no oil, grease, wax, silicone, or graphite. It has a specific gravity of 1.12; weights 9.4 lb/gal., and the coefficient of friction of dry film is 0.035.
It is intended for use as received, but if a more dilute dispersion is desired the product can be extended with water. Because it is dispersion, it settles on standing. It is necessary to mix the product thoroughly prior to — and periodically during — use. If the material has not been standing for too long, hand mixing may satisfactorily re-disperse the solids. However, after longer storage periods, mechanical stirring is recommended.
MoS2-900 is essentially non-toxic. Containers should be kept closed to prevent evaporation of water. The product should be kept above 32°F to avoid freezing. The MSDS thataccompanies each shipment should be reviewed before using this product.
