Temperature

Definition – Condition with respect to heat or cold, especially as indicated by the sensation produced, or by the thermometer or pyrometer; degree of heat or cold; as, the temperature of the air; high temperature; low temperature; temperature of freezing or of boiling.

Temperature and Coatings – Temperature is one of the reasons for using engineered coatings instead of traditional forms of lubrication. Many of our coatings are capable of functioning from cryogenic temperatures to over 2000° F. When selecting a coating, it is very important that the coating have the correct formulation to provide the needed temperature advantage.

Temperature and Coatings- Temperature is one of the reasons for using engineered coatings instead of traditional forms of lubrication. Many of our coatings are capable of functioning from cryogenic temperatures to over 2000° F. When selecting a coating, it is very important that the coating have the correct formulation to provide you the needed temperature advantage. The temperature ranges for some of our solid film lubricants:

Coating Type Temperature In Air Temperature In inert environment
MoS2 Cryogenic to 750° F Cryogenic to 1200° F
Graphite Cryogenic to 1200° F Cryogenic to 2000° F
PTFE -150° F to 500° F N/A
Microseal® Thin Film Coatings -423° F to 2000° F N/A
