CT-1 Dry Film Lubricant

Description

CT-1 is a Dry Film Lubricant coating that helps reduce friction and abrasive wear. It provides intermittent dry lubrication and is not affected by dust or dirt. CT-1 is specifically engineered to withstand the extreme conditions of today's high performance engines. Professional engine builders enjoy a higher level of confidence with increased embedability, strength and durability.

Color(s)

  • Gray

Process

CT-1 Dry Film Lubricant coating is applied as a spray process. Different surface preparation methods appropriate for the substrates will be used prior to the coating process. Coating thickness is varied to suit the application. Typical coating thickness for engine bearings is 0.00025" to 0.00030" inch (6 to 7.5 microns).

Advantages

Provides intermittent dry lubrication, Not affected by dust or dirt, Low coefficient of friction, Increases load carrying capacity, Thin coating to accommodate assembly constraints, Chemical resistance, Corrosion protection, Reduced friction and drag resulting in decreased parasitic load
