Bonded Lubricant Coating

Bonded Lubricant Coating

The application of Bonded Lubricants also takes place within the High Performance Section at Plastic Coatings Ltd.

Typical Bonded Lubricants would be Molykote ®, Molydag ®, Molydal ®, and Everslik ®. Applied in a similar fashion to PTFE coatings Bonded Lubricants have properties of their own.

They are used obviously as a dry lubricant, however, the best way to explain the difference between these coatings and PTFE is to say that in general PTFE as a dry Lubricant Coating is suitable for fast moving light loads whereas Bonded Lubricants are better suited to heavier slow moving loads.
