Dry film or solid film lubricants (DFLs) reduce friction between two surfaces.  They are used when wet lubricants, oils and greases can be washed away, or when operating temperature does not permit a grease or oil.  PTFE and Molybdenum Disulfide are the most common DFLs with Graphite used to a lesser extent.

With almost 30 years of expertise in corrosion protection, Cor-Pro Systems has consistently provided professional and top-of-the-line services to clients in a variety of industries.  Cor-Pro Systems is a high quality provider in the corrosion prevention industry.

Corrosion Protection: What Are Dry Or Solid Film Coatings?

Mainly composed of graphite and molybdenum, dry or solid film coatings cling to metallic and non-metallic substrates without leaving a runny liquid residue common in other types of coatings.

Dry film coatings reduces friction and offers excellent lubrication while protecting against extreme working conditions such as high heat.

Most industries now prefer dry or solid film over conventional coatings because of its excellent adhesion, making it ideal for a multitude of surface types and a more cost-effective choice against corrosion.

Corrosion Protection Coatings: Application Of Dry Or Solid Film

Dry or solid film coatings are used by a variety of industries including Petroleum, Energy or Power Generation, and Mining amongst others.

Dry film coatings are usually applied to parts and equipment that are:

  • In constant motion – Constant sliding or reciprocating motion especially in gears and chains requires excellent lubrication to minimize wear and tear
  • Subjected to high temperatures – Liquid lubricants do poorly in high temperatures whereas dry film coatings provide protection in high temperature and oxidizing environments without disintegrating
  • In extreme contact pressure – The lamellar structure of dry film coatings allows it to withstand the high-bearing load of extreme contact pressure

Preferred over conventional lubricants, dry film coatings provide many benefits including excellent adhesion to substrates, and a clean, dry, colorless, and non-oily end-product making it a better coating choice compared to liquid coatings.

Corrosion Protection: Why Are Coatings Important?

Companies can save up to 25 to 30% of annual corrosion costs in the US if they invest in quality coatings. Without proper coatings, corrosion can have damaging effects on valves, motors, pumps, fasteners, switches, belts, and other mechanical equipment.

In infrastructure, the annual direct cost is around $22.6 billion. Corrosion costs total $47.9 billion for utilities such as gas, water, and electricity.

Reduce costs

  • 25% of costs caused by corrosion is avoided by applying existing knowledge on corrosion protection such as coatings.

Reduce accidents

  • Work-related accidents cost the US $250 billion every year. A lot of those incidents are caused by faulty work equipment. If a structure is free of corrosion, the risk for accidents is significantly reduced.

Save time

  • In the event your equipment does falter due to corrosion, repairing it will take time. Once operations stop, the delay in production will also mean profit losses.
