Tested on the Toughest Proving Grounds.

We first started working with the Rock Island Arsenal on DFLs in 1961. Since then, the U.S. Army has continued to use Sandstrom coatings to inhibit corrosion and reduce friction in its weapons. And the commercial weapons industry regularly turns to Sandstrom for quality products as well. Our external coatings offer superior corrosion resistance for upper and lower receivers, as well as internal components. We also provide original and maintenance coatings for gun magazines—and tens of millions of bullets get coated each year with our moly coatings. 

  • POXYLUBE® #859

Poxylube® #859 Dry Film Lubricant is a single component heat cured water base coating formulated with PTFE to provide excellent coating, fluid resistance and corrosion protection. This heat cured material prevents corrosion, galling, seizing and fretting.

Once Poxylube® #859 has been applied to a properly prepared surface and cured, it is virtually unaffected by atmospheric and fretting corrosion, solvents, acids, oils and degreasers. Poxylube® #859 can be applied to all metallic and nonmetallic surfaces by spray or dip application.

POXYLUBE® #859 CONTAINS NO GRAPHITE.

STANDARD COLORS: Black / Desert Tan / Olive Drab / Urban Assault Gray

  • 28A - One Product, 2 Specs - No Minimum Order

Sandstrom 28A is used more than any other Sandstrom product by the U.S. Department of Defense due to the excellent corrosion resistance and load carrying capacity it offers for convenient and practical in-field application.

 

            28A is listed on the United States’ Dept. of Defense QPL for MIL-L-23398 Types I & II, NATO Code S-749.

             28A is listed on the United States’ Dept. of Defense QPL for MIL-PRF-46147 Type I Color 1 Forms 1 & 2.

 

Sandstrom 28A SFL is a lacquer-like lubricant containing molybdenum disulfide and corrosion inhibiting pigments. This air drying material prevents corrosion, galling, seizing and fretting. It is a low-friction coating that exhibits long wear life when operated at -320°F to +300°F under loads exceeding 100,000 psi. Sandstrom 28A should be applied where baking with the longer wearing, heat cured #099, Sandstrom 9A or LC-300 is not desirable or practical. Once 28A has been applied to a properly prepared surface and allowed to cure, it is virtually unaffected by atmospheric and fretting corrosion, acids, oils and degreasers. Sandstrom 28A can be applied to all metallic and non-metallic surfaces by spray application.

Once 28A has been applied to a properly prepared surface and allowed to cure, it is virtually unaffected by atmospheric and fretting corrosion, acids, oils and degreasers. Sandstrom 28A can be applied to all metallic and non-metallic surfaces by spray application. 

Offered in bulk dispersion, aerosol cans or marker pens (now includes a brush tip), Sandstrom 28A is toxic heavy metals and HAP-solvent free. *See Technical Data Sheet for more details.

Brief Product History: Sandstrom 28A replaced the discontinued Sandstrom #238 in 2013.  In 2008,  Sandstrom 28A replaced Sandstrom 27A and was qualified to MIL-PRF-46147. Sandstrom 27A was preceded by Sandstrom 26A, which was retired in 1991.
