Dry Film Lubricants

A dry film lubricant (also known as a solid lubricant) is used on an area where a liquid based lubricant (such as a grease) is unable to work properly. Like the rest of its family, it is used to reduce the effects of sliding friction that can be caused in everyday industry. At Silmid Limited, we can provide a range of dry film products, including pastes, sprays and fluids for all application preferences. Each of these vary in their benefits, but can cover a range of tasks from maintenance shafts and valves, to mechanical linkages and turbine engines. 

The majority of Dry Film Lubricants on the market are molybdenum disulphide (Moly), polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) or graphite based depending on the application requirement, all of which have their advantages. Graphite based substances have a higher working temperature (approximately 1450°F), whereas moly based lubricants work best ina high vacuum situation. PTFE products are generally perceived to be unaffected by water, acids and most other chemicals. Dry film lubricants, compared to liquid based alternatives leave only a very thin layer on the part, therefore not compromising the size and fit of the interlinking pieces.
