Armite’s Molybdenum Disulfide Petrolatum is manufactured to conform to the requirements of military specification MIL-PRF-83483E. This compound contains molybdenum disulfide, which at higher temperature conditions (1000°F and above) may induce hot corrosion of fastener or contiguous materials. Accordingly, its use at higher temperatures should be avoided.
Molybdenum Disulfide, with its excellent lubricity and high load capacity, is particularly suitable for use on aircraft spark plugs and threaded fasteners and fittings at temperatures below 800°F.
Some suggested applications include gaskets, valve stems, fasteners, spark plugs, etc.
