Dry Film Lubricants, also known as Dry Lube are coatings made of fine particles of lubricating pigments blended with binders and other additives. These high performance coatings are generally applied by spraying and are typically heat cured. These lubricants become bonded to the surface of the part and provide reduce friction and wear by preventing surface contact between mating parts (i.e. a shaft and bearing). Common solid film lubricant specifications are MIL-L-46010 and MIL-L-8937.
