Molybdenum Disulfide

Molybdenum disulfide is created from the ore of molybdenum, which is valued as an industrial metal as it has an extremely high melting point of 4,750 degrees Fahrenheit. Black and somewhat gritty, molybdenum disulfide resembles graphite and shares many of it is properties, such as low friction and high strength.

Having been refined until reaching an average particle size of 0.5 microns, it is classified as a solid lubricant. Webco uses molybdenum disulfide in many oil and gas-industry applications that are subject to high load capacities (molybdenum disulfide withstands loads of up to 400,000 psi), extreme heat, and extreme wear.

Types of Molybdenum Disulfide

Molybdenum disulfide coatings are available in a variety of formulations, including greases, oils, anti-seize compounds, aerosols, and additives. When faced with a coating job, Webco will evaluate the part in question, the role it plays, and the environment in which it is used. Based on this information, we’ll choose the ideal formula to get the job done and prolong the part’s lifespan.

When it comes to molybdenum, options include formulations that are designed especially for the following unique circumstances common in petroleum industry applications:

• Withstanding extremely high temperatures
• Withstanding extreme pressure, varying temperatures, and wet or corrosive conditions
• Protecting soft metals from gall
• Resisting over-torquing
• Being compatible with elastomers
