MARINE & INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS of MolySlip CopaSlip
Copaslip (often misspelled as copper slip or coppaslip) - the original anti-seize compound. It is a very high temperature (up to 1100 Â°C) anti-seize assembly compound, bentone based non-melt grease with copper, polybutene, and anti-corrosion additives.
Theory of Molyslip Lubrication
In use, Molyslip products form a lubricating layer of Molybdenum Disulphide on metal surfaces in the following manner.
The Molybdenum 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.
Thus, there 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 with 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.
The molecular thickness of Molybdenum Disulphide is such that there are approximately 40,000 lubricating or cleavage planes in a MoS2 film one-thousandth of an inch thick!
The Molybdenum 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 Â·03 to Â·06 which gives more efficient lubrication combined with this greater protection.
COPASLIP Â® is an anti-seize compound specially formulated to protect against seizure even in extreme conditions of temperature and pressure. It also protects against rust, oxidation and other corrosion. COPASLIP Â® consists of micro-sized particles of copper in a semi-synthetic base. To these basic anti-seize ingredients are added highly effective oxidation and corrosion inhibitors. The unique combination of properties in COPASLIPÂ® ensures rapid and easy assembly of threaded parts. It allows correct torque to be applied by eliminating thread interference.
COPASLIP Â® prevents seizing and galling and gives quick and easybreakout of threads, gaskets and packings even after long exposure to high temperature, corrosive conditions or extreme surface pressures. It also reduces wear in areas of high friction. By protecting against seizure, maintenance work requiring routine or infrequent assembly and dismantling is made much easier and less costly.
