How to Specify Dicronite® Dry Lubrication Instructions and Considerations

Once you determine your system or component is optimized by adding Dicronite® WS2 coating, it is simple to specify it on your engineering drawings. Using annotations, note surfaces where Dicronite® DL-5® dry lubrication is required. If you require that some areas must remain clean of Dicronite®, designate where no coating is allowed. Technicians will mask …

How a Tungsten Disulfide Coating Eliminates Thread Galling in Fasteners

How a Tungsten Disulfide Coating Eliminates Thread Galling in Fasteners   Galling is a common form of wear that can occur when threaded fasteners are installed or removed. With enough force and friction between threads, mating surfaces will begin to wear or gall.  As the threads rub together, particles are broken off from the mating …

Properties of Dicronite® DL-5® Dry Film Lubrication

  Properties of Dicronite® DL-5® Dry Film Lubrication Once engineers learn that Dicronite® dry film lubrication may very well solve their lubrication challenges, the conversation often turns to the solid lubricant’s properties.  Dicronite® DL-5® is a modified tungsten disulfide powder (also spelled “tungsten disulphide”).  Tungsten disulfide can be mined naturally as tungstenite, or it can …
