LAM'LCOAT® coating

Based on technology originally developed by NASA, LAM’LCOAT® coating is a solid lubricant which is mechanically very resistant. Its extremely low friction coefficient explains its widespread use in all industry sectors.

General features

- Dry lubricant strips
- Guaranteed thickness of 1µm (± 0,5)
- Friction coefficient: 0,03 dynamic (graphite: 0,074) and 0,07 static
- Lubricating power increases with load applied:
friction coefficient of 0,044 under 14 kg/mm² increasing to 0,024 under 140 kg/mm² and remains stable up to 280 kg/mm²
- Working temperature: -273°C to +600°C continuous
- Mil Spec approved. For military uses

Main advantages

- Offers the lowest available friction coefficient (0.030 dynamic)
- It is anti-seize and possesses non-stick properties
- The low friction coefficient reduces the operational temperature and noise
- LAM’LCOAT® does not deform materials (1 micron thick). It preserves the original dimensional features of the tools and blades and any surface treatments applied
- It is environmentally friendly and is chemically inert
- Lubricates tools permanently
- It eliminates any hysteresis phenomenon for short-term relocation and enables very precise positioning.
- Reduces the need for maintenance operations
- Improves the capacity of tools and their general quality
- Reduces pressure and wear and increases the life-span of tools and accessories
- Can increase productivity (because it can increase the speed and output)
- Does not require firing
- Does not alter the finished part
- Does not move
