Product Announcement from General Magnaplate Corporation
Recognized by the Guinness Book of Records as the solid with the lowest COF in the world, this space-age, dry-film lubricant solves critical problems of wear, galling and fretting on steel, stainless steel and copper alloys at high and low temperature extremes, even under heavy loads. The coating consists of a matrix of metallic layers, and becomes a permanent, integral part of the base metal. After burnishing, it offers maximum lubricity.
HI-T-LUBE can be applied to virtually all metals that are normally used when the components are subjected to high compressive forces: steel, stainless steel, copper, copper alloys, etc. It may also be successfully employed on aluminum where that metal's surface will withstand the compression forces involved in the application.
Hardness/Wear & Abrasion: Wear rate is negligible after break-in period. Can withstand extremely high compression loads (in excess of 150,000 psi).
Friction Properties: Coefficient Of Friction: after break-in burnishing, as low as 0.03. Lowest coefficient of friction of any solid in the world.
Corrosion Resistance: Up to 200 hours in ASTM B-117 salt spray at 0.001" thickness.
Temperatures: Operating Range: -360°F (-218°C) to 1000°F (538°C). Coating can be modified to withstand higher temperatures depending on application.
Thickness: Range: 0.0005" to 0.0015". Control of coating is ±0.0003" for 0.001" thickness. Multiple layer diffusion process will compress in high load areas.
Applications: A solid, multi-metal lubricant that can operate in a vacuum with no outgassing or in high radiation environments. Ideal for use on splines, gears, bearings, rails, aircraft impellers, etc. Basically, any moving part.
