Hi-T-Lube

Record-breaking coating for sliding wear

Recognized in the Guinness Book of World Records for having the lowest coefficient of friction of any solid (0.03), Hi-T-Lube® is a synergistic coating for sliding wear and high surface loads.

Hi-T-Lube works at critical temperature extremes to prevent friction, galling and wear. Engineers used the coating in NASA space vehicles and now apply it to manufacturing, processing and packaging equipment.

In application testing for jet engine use, Hi-T-Lube worked under exacting conditions. In preliminary thrust bearing tests where conventional lubricants and combinations of materials failed in less than five minutes, Hi-T-Lube performed for three hours, 36 times greater effectiveness. These tests used a room temperature of up to 1000°F (538°C), an applied load of 1400 pounds rotating at 720 rpm and reversing direction every three seconds.

Hi-T-Lube dry lubricant

Hi-T-Lube has received special recognition from NASA and the NJ Wing of the Air Force Association.

Technical advantages

Hi-T-Lube offers superior properties when compared to other high temperature dry lubricants. Hi-T-Lube properties include:

  • Sliding and rolling applications at high pressure and at temperature extremes
  • Withstanding high compression loads
  • Adherence to base metals in severe temperatures or environments
  • Coating thickness of ± 0.0003 at 0.001 inches
  • Operation in vacuums of 10-7 Torr
  • Abrasive wear and galling prevention
  • No outgassing
  • Up to 200 hours salt spray at 0.001 inches thickness
  • Stable vibration from 28 to 85G
  • Dry self-lubricating
  • Hydrocarbons and synthetic lubricant compatibility
