LUBRICOAT® Product Lineups

LUBRICOAT® uses the paint produced by dispersing solid contents such as solid lubricant*2 in various binders*1 and solvents. We select the optimum paint from our product lineups according to its intended use. We also actively engage in the development of materials to meet any new needs not covered by our existing products. By combining the optimum binder with the optimum solid content, we design a new formulation and propose it to the customer.

(*1) What is a binder?
It is an adhesive, and it is a resin that forms the base of the film. Typical resins are epoxy resin, polyurethane, acrylic resin, phenol resin, and polyamide-imide resin. Some cure at room temperature to form a film and others cure by heating to form a film. When heat is required, the curing temperature can range from 80°C to more than 200°C. The binder is a key element in improving the adhesion to the substrate materials and determining the hardness, abrasion resistance, and chemical resistance of the film, and is therefore selected according to the substrate materials and its purpose of use.
(*2) What is a solid lubricant?
It is a powder material that brings out the lubricating property of the LUBRICOAT®. Molybdenum disulfide, PTFE, and graphite are the most common.

Characteristics of molybdenum disulfide (MoS2)

  • Low friction coefficient at high load ranges
  • Load bearing property
  • Abrasion resistance

Characteristics of PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene)

  • Low friction coefficient at low load ranges
  • Non-viscosity
  • Water repellence, oil repellence
  • Chemical resistance, solvent resistance

Characteristics of graphite

  • Low friction coefficient at medium load ranges
  • Lubricating property in wet atmosphere
  • High heat conductivity
  • High electrical conductivity
