Sandstrom #099 Dry Film Lubricant is a paint-like coating containing molybdenum disulfide and corrosion inhibiting pigments. This heat curing material prevents corrosion, galling, seizing, and fretting. It is a low-friction coating that exhibits long wear life when operated at -320°F to +500°F under loads exceeding 100,000 psi. Sandstrom #099 should be applied where maximum wear life and corrosion protection from a DFL are required. Sandstrom #099 may be applied by brush, dip or spray method to a wide variety of surfaces. After it is heat cured, #099 is virtually unaffected by atmospheric and fretting corrosion, solvents, acids, oils, degreasers and is not re-softened at elevated temperatures.

Ambient Cure DFLs

Benefits of an Ambient Cure Coating

Components that are too large to fit into an oven can be coated with an air dry Solid Film Lubricants to obtain the performance properties desired from a bonded coating.
When in field use precludes application of a heat cured coating, an air dry coating offers the protection desired without the hassle of pulling equipment or components from the field.
Substrates that cannot withstand heat curing temperatures can still have improved performance characteristics when coated with an air dry coating.

General Tips and Cautions:

The functional properties of heat cured coatings exceed those of ambient cure coatings. Therefore, use a heat cured coating when possible to achieve the highest performance.
When air drying a DFL, apply the following ideal conditions to ensure the best cure:

Air, Part, and Product Temperature of 77°F +/- 5°F
Air at ≤ 70% Relative Humidity
When these ideal conditions cannot be met in the field, longer dry times are necessary to obtain optimum performance.

Prior to application of the coating, determine the best surface preparation (phosphate, anodize, etc.) for the substrate and the desired performance characteristics.
Permanent coatings should not be used in conjunction with oils or greases unless field use instructs otherwise.
Sandstrom Dry Film Lubricants are not suitable for surfaces that may contact food or on food-processing or food-handling equipment.

Heat Cure DFLs

Benefits of a Heat Cured Coating

The resin systems of a heat cured coating will typically yield greater performance properties (e.g., Operating Temperature Range, Corrosion Protection, Wear Life, Load Carry, Chemical and Fluid Resistance) than an air dry coating.

General Tips and Cautions:

None of our coatings should be baked in anything other than a Class A oven, which is specially designed for flammable or combustible materials. Use of any other type of oven could result in serious bodily injury or property damage. Ensure the oven is properly vented before starting.
We offer coatings that can be heat cured at temperatures ranging from 250°F to 480°F.  Do NOT choose a coating that will subject metals or other substrates to temperatures that may adversely affect the substrate’s inherent properties.
Start timing when the part reaches temperature, not when the part is placed into the Class A oven, unless otherwise instructed.
Prior to application of the coatings, determine the best surface preparation (phosphate, anodize, etc.) for the substrate and the desired performance characteristics.
Permanent coatings should not be used in conjunction with oils or greases unless field use instructs otherwise.
Sandstrom Dry Film Lubricants are not suitable for surfaces that may contact food or on food-processing or food-handling equipment.
