Friction coating used to avoid vibration



(-----) February 14, 2008

1. We use number of bolts for fastening the various parts of automobiles, these parts are dipped in chemicals. I want to know which is the perfect coating which avoids vibration in automobiles.Basically what I meant is which is the best friction coating used to avoid vibration?
2. How does it work? (With technical data)

MoS2 is an anti friction material. I suspect that he is looking for something like the common material "Loctite" in the USA There are many other brands and each has various levels of locking the bolt or stud into metal. These levels vary from a little bit sticky or gummy to "you might break the bolt before it comes out."

What the technical data related to coating of molydenum Disulfide coating? Is it something like Loctite coating or is it like normal coatings like zinc or phosphate coatings given to the threaded fasteners?

I think this discussion is showing us that people don't understand what you want, Fenny. Please confirm that you are looking for some kind of loctite-like coating to prevent bolts from loosening. Thanks.

MoS2 is ideally applied over a grit blasted surface that has a modified zinc phosphate coating. It is normally sprayed on and then baked. While it is not graphite, it is somewhat similar to graphite in it's use. It is referred to as a dry film lubricant.

Loctite is a polymer adhesive used to avoid vibrational loosening(This is not what I want).
Threaded fasteners comes in different types of coatings like zinc, phosphate, xylan, dacromat, etc. which helps in corrosion resistant, lubricity, decorative.
SO I what to know, is there any coating that helps in resisting vibration?

You say you do not need something to avoid vibrational loosening, but you do need something to resist vibration. Fenny. I think this wording is what continues to cause us difficulty. We simply don't know what you mean by "resisting vibration". Do you expect a fastener to act like a spring and shock absorber, so you won't feel a pothole when your car hits it, or won't feel the engine running? Or have you experienced a coating actually coming off from a fastener like a dog drying itself? There are strict adhesion standards for all coatings and no coating should shake off.
