Dry Lubricant Spray
Dry lubricant spray is a handy item to have in your tool arsenal. Unlike penetrating sprays, dry lubricants do not attract dust. At Rogo, we carry a reliable dry lubricant to keep your moving parts running smoothly and cleanly.
The Slippery Side of Dry Lubricants
Lubricant sprays are often made with grease or oil compounds. The solid compounds in dry lubricant sprays can reduce friction between surfaces like their liquid counterparts. At the molecular level, dry lubricant compounds have a weakly bonded layered structure which allows these lubricants to slide along other surfaces.
At Rogo, we offer a dry lubricant spray made with molybdenum disulfide. This lubricant compound has uses in various sectors, including:
- Automotive industry
- Food processing plants
- Railroad track systems
- Brass musical instruments
Molybdenum is able to withstand extreme temperatures and can maintain lubrication in vacuum environments.
The Practical Uses of Dry Lubricant Sprays
The solvents in dry lubricants evaporate quickly, leaving a dry film that prevents surfaces from sticking together. Unlike grease lubricants, there is no oily residue left behind to collect dust or dirt. You may have to reapply more often than penetrating sprays; however, you do not have to worry about gunk build-up over time.
You can use dry lubricants both indoors and outdoors. They are great to keep inside the house to maintain door hinges, locks, toolbox drawers, and drawer slides. You can also use them outside for most moving parts, such as bearings, engines, and tools. For questions on dry lubricants, contact our team at Rogo today!
