SET MoS2 Eases the Way to Mars

Space Worthy Lubricant: MoS2

Metal rods being coated with molybdenum disulfide.Conditions in space create an environment where liquid and carbon based lubricants cannot work. SET has applied its Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS2) coating on bearings and release cams for vacuum applications where oil pumps and alternative coatings would fail. These include satellites, shuttles, the International Space Station, and even the Mars Rover, Opportunity!
