Solid Film & Dry Film Lubricant Coatings

Series 400 Solid/Dry Film Lubricant Coatings 
For Ferrous & Non-Ferrous Metals

solid film lubricants

Solid / dry film lubricants are unique finishes engineered to provide exceptional dry lubrication, and often serve as a more robust product alternative to traditional lubricants and anti-seizing agents such as superficial oils.

Benefits of Low Friction Coatings

Depending on your application requirements or desired military or industry specification, dry/solid film lubricants use a low coefficient of friction to provide benefits by protecting tooling from galling, resist seizure, fretting or corrosion, for a variety of extreme conditions.

Dry film lubricants can be utilized in applications with extreme temperature ranges (from sub-zero to 1200° F) and resist out-gassing under vacuum for use in the aerospace and military industries. Endura® offers a range of these low friction coatings to satisfy your application requirements.

Dry Film Lubricant Applications

Dry film lubricant coatings also possess these benefits and characteristics making them ideal for many applications:

  • Low Friction, Reduces Friction
  • Improves Wear Resistance
  • Abrasion, Chemical and Corrosion Resistance

Series 400 dry/solid film lubricant coatings are engineered to serve as robust alternatives to traditional lubricants and anti-seizing agents, such as oils.  These coatings create a protective, permanent dry lubricated surface and do an excellent job mitigating wear, galling, and corrosion, even in applications that have high operating temperatures.

  • Critical Processing Factors

    Base Metal Surface Requirements

    Heavily contaminated or used parts are cleaned thoroughly using high heat thermal exposure, blasting medias or chemical agents.

    How Are Coatings Applied?

    Solid/Dry Film lubricants can be deposited in ways such as hand burnishing, line-of-sight sprayed, dipped or mechanically burnished via high pressurized blasting operation.


    Masking is available in a variety of mediums for surfaces where coating is not desired.
