What does molybdenum sulfide mean?
This is the principal component of molybdenite. It’s a solid black color with metallic luster. Molybdenum dioxide has a chemical formula: MoS2, with a melting point of 2375degC. Its density is 4.80g/cm3 which is 14degC. The Mohs hardness can range from 1.0-1.5. It starts to decay at 1370 degC. At 1600 degC it becomes metallic molybdenum or sulfur.
Molybdenum disulfide cannot be found in water, dilute or concentrated sulfuric, and is generally insoluble with other acids and organic solvents. But, aqua regia can dissolve it and boiling concentrated sulfuric acid will make it soluble.
What applications can molybdenum disulfide be used for?
Molybdenum Disulfide is a widely-used carbon brush additive in the machinery and automotive industries. You can add it to grease, PTFE nylon, paraffin and stearic to increase friction reduction and improve lubrication.
Molybdenum dioxide can also be used for non-ferrous materials and as a lubricant to forging tools. These can improve service times and working conditions, prolong their life spans, reduce surface damage and prevent cold welding. Make sure that the threaded connection is in its most ideal condition when connecting.
You can mix molybdenum disulfide and some volatile solvents together to spray on metal surfaces. Or, you can add engineering plastics with it to create lubricating elements. Molybdenum sulfide is a versatile chemical that can be used directly in electronics and spraying. It also has the ability to electroplat, fix hardware and screws.
Molybdenum disulfide can be used as a solid lubricant. It is particularly well-suited to high temperatures and high pressure. Also diamagnetic, it can be used to produce a line photoconductor or a semiconductor of P-type (or N-type) conductivity. Additionally, it has energy conversion functions and can also perform rectification. Molybdenum dioxide can be used as an accelerator for dehydrogenation complex hydrocarbons.
Molybdenum disulfide has been called the “king of solid lubricants” This solid powder is made up of molybdenum concentrate after chemical purification. Molybdenum disulfide’s color is dark and metallic-gray. It has a greasy feel and insoluble in water. This has two advantages: it is non-adhesive and easy to disperse. This can be used to make a colloidal solution that is not bound to greases. It will increase the lubricity as well as the extreme pressure.
Molybdenum disulfide works well in extreme conditions, such as high temperatures, high pressure and high loads. This prolongs the equipment’s lifespan.
With little loss of ignition or volatile, the main purpose molybdenum-disulfide serves in friction material is to decrease friction at low temperatures and increase friction at higher temperature.
