The use of molybdenum disulfide MoS(sub2) as a solid film lubricant in applications where designs or temperatures preclude liquid lubricants is dependent upon successful bonding of the powder to the surface to be lubricated. An experimental investigation was conducted to determine the basic mechanism of bonding and to extend application of the bonding to a variety of materials.
