Solid Film Lubricant, Extreme Environment
Slickote Dry Lube X is a heat cured, inorganic bonded, solid film lubricant coating which meets the requirements of MIL-PRF-81329 (Nato S-1737)
For use in oxygen systems, space vehicles, bearing assemblies and other equipment where the environments of extreme temperature and nuclear radiation preclude the use of commercial lubricants and organic solid film lubricants.
To reduce wear and prevent galling and seizure of metals.
Where conventional lubricants are difficult to apply or retain, or where other lubricants may be easily
contaminated with dirt and dust.
Where temperature ranges are from -185 deg C to 400 deg C
