THEORY OF MOLYSLIP LUBRICATION ::::
In use, Molyslip
products form a lubricating layer of Molybdenum Disulphide
on metal surfaces in the following manner.
Disulphide molecules arrange themselves into plates with
a laminar structure in which each molybdenum atom is sandwiched
between two sulphur atoms. The sulphur atoms are attracted
to metal and therefore become plated or bonded on to each
of the adjacent bearing surfaces. In between these two platings
further layers of molecules form. The sulphur-to-metal bonding
is very strong, but the sulphur-to-sulphur bonding between
adjacent molecules is very weak.
are two bearing surfaces, each protectively plated by a
layer of Molybdenum Disulphide molecules with sliding or
lubricating layers of molecules in between. In this way
direct contact of metal-to-metal surfaces is prevented,
friction is considerably reduced, with the consequent elimination
of local heating, wear is inhibited and protection achieved
even under extreme conditions of pressure and temperature.
thickness of Molybdenum Disulphide is such that there are
approximately 40,000 lubricating or cleavage planes in an
MoS2 film one thousandth of an inch thick!
Disulphide plating is, in effect, a separating layer of
immense strength, greater than the yield stress of most
metals...and in addition it possesses the low coefficient
of friction of ·03 to ·06 which gives more
efficient lubrication combined with this greater protection.

lubrication reduces wear and temperature, improves
performance and fuel consumption.
An anti-seize compound
and a lubricant perform entirely different functions although
many anti-seize products have lubricating properties,
especially at higher temperatures. In environmentally
adverse conditions such as high humidity and salinity,
extreme pressure, acidic atmospheres or excessive temperatures,
metals can fuse or weld together. The chief culprit is
corrosion, particularly in marine surroundings. Molyslip
anti-seize products are designed to provide an insulating
layer between metals so that dismantling and routine maintenance
are free from breakage of fused parts. This problem is
especially onerous on threads and shackles. A single application
of Copaslip (often misspelled as copperslip or coppaslip)
or Alumslip will stop metal fusion for many years.

anti-seize compound. It is a very high temperature (up
