Owing to its low frictional properties and robustness, Molybdenum Disulphide (MOS2) has gained popularity as a solid lubricant and grease. It generally appears as a dark gray to black powder. It is comparatively non reactive and remain unaffected from dilute acids and oxygen. It finds use in the air craft engines where it can retain its lubricity even in case of complete oil losses.
MOS2 forms a composite with enhanced strength and reduced friction in case of addition to plastics. Molybdenum Disulphide can be utilized in construction, mining, transportation, agricultural and industries. It possesses a hexagonal lattice structure which gives it low friction and excellent adherence to most metals surface. Molybdenum disulfide is thermally stable in vacuum or inert environments. In fluid lubricants such as gear oils, MOS2 dispersions can be used to minimizes friction, wear and bulk oil temperature in the boundary lubrication conditions found in helical gears and hypoid gears.
