Sandstrom 9A dry film lubricant is a paint-like coating containing molybdenum disulfide and corrosion inhibiting pigments. This heat curing material prevents corrosion, galling, seizing and fretting. It is a low-friction coating which exhibits long wear life when operated at -320°F to +500°F under loads exceeding 100,000 psi.

Product Information

Sandstrom 9A should be applied where maximum wear life and corrosion protection from a dry film lubricant are required. Sandstrom 9A may be applied by brush, dip or spray method to a wide variety of surfaces. After it is heat cured, 9A is virtually unaffected by atmospheric and fretting corrosion, solvents, acids, oils or degreasers and is not re-softened at elevated temperatures.


  • Excellent Corrosion Protection
  • Chemical Resistance
  • Long Wear Life

Typical uses

Sandstrom 9A is an excellent solution to the problem of lubricating parts:

  • That will be operated in corrosive atmospheres.
  • That may be stored for long periods.
  • That are seldom lubricated once they leave the factory and permanent lubrication is desired.
  • Where operating pressures exceed the load-bearing capacities of ordinary oils and greases.
  • Where ""clean operation"" is desired (does not collect dirt and debris like grease and oils).
  • Where a protective coating and sacrificial break-in lubricant is needed.
  • Where fretting and galling is a problem (e.g., splines, universal joints, keyed bearings).
  • Where easy release is desired (e.g., fasteners, PVC molds).
  • Where parts may be subjected to frequent disassembly.


Do not use 9A where there is potential for contact with liquid oxygen or food.
