Sliding and Detachment

Technical features

The MOLYCOTE coatings, in case of high loads, high temperatures and extended interruptions, intervene in addition or as an alternative to conventional lubrication when precarious and insufficient.

Avoiding the metal-metal direct contact between the coated component and its opponent, the treatments enable us to drastically reduce the stick wear and to considerably reduce the risk of seizing-up. 

Thanks to a processing cycle performed at low temperatures, we can also treat metals and alloys susceptible to thermal deformation or components with very tight dimensional tolerances. 


The main benefits of those coatings are the following:

  • no stick-slip

  • corrosion protection

  • reduction of heat and friction noise

  • excellent resistance to temperatures between -195C and +290C
