Aviation


Dicronite dry lubrication is valued by the aviation industry for its ultra-low friction (u=0.030), precision tolerances (maximum 0.5 micron thickness) and wide temperature range (-188C to +538C), as well as its low temperature application process that does not affect the more exotic metals used in cutting-edge defense applications. Meets AMS2530 and DOD-L-85645A specifications. AS9100 certified and NADCAP accredited facilities. Companies including Boeing, EADS, General Dynamics and Parker Hannifin use Dicronite dry lubrication for:

  • Hydraulic valve and connector lubrication
  • Anti-galling/anti-seize protection for connectors, fasteners and rivets
  • Flanges and couplings in fueling systems

 

 

Space


Dicronite dry lubrication’s extreme temperature range (-188C to +1316 in 10-14 torr vacuum), extremely low outgassing (10x or more below ASTM E595 criteria), precision tolerance (maximum 0.5 micron thickness) and radiation stability are key to its wide use in space. Meets AMS2530 and DOD-L-85645A specifications. AS9100 certified and NADCAP accredited facilities. Companies and organizations including NASA, Raytheon, Lockheed-Martin and the Max Planck Institute use Dicronite dry lubrication for:

  • Instrument deployment device lubrication on the Mars Explorer Rover
  • Precision roller bearings in satellites
  • Linear and rotational cryogenic actuators in infrared detectors
