Solid Film Lubricant: Anti-Gallant Treatment

Solid Film Lubricant AnoLube 9650AnoLube 9650
Solid Film Lubricant is a lacquer-like coating containing molybdenum disulfide and corrosion inhibiting pigments within a silicone vehicle. It is a specialized product designed to prevent galling and provide long wear life at high temperatures (500o F to 750o F) exceeding the operational ranges of AnoLube 9620 A and conventional dry film lubricants and meeting Pratt & Whitney specification PWA 550U.

Higher pigment loading protects all metals from falling, fretting, and seizing. This solid film lubricant exhibits extremely low friction and anti-galling characteristics at loads in excess of 100,000 psi.

Usually, engineering tolerances will permit the necessary minimum film buildup of 0.0002 to 0.0003 inches without interference. If excess buildup does occur and a force fit is necessary, burnishing lightly will assist in making the parts. The remaining excess will be work away in the first few cycles of operation. Whenever possible, the proper tolerances should be designed into the part.

This treatment should not be used in the presence of hydrocarbon and synthetic oils, lubricants or fuel as these materials will degrade the AnoLube 9650.


  • Where fretting and galling is a problem
  • Where high operational temperatures are incurred
  • Which are seldom lubricated once they are built
  • Where operating pressures exceed the load-bearing capacities of ordinary oils and greases.
  • Where “clean operation” is desired (AnoLube 9650 will not collect dirt and debris as do grease and oils)
  • Where a protective coating and sacrificial break-in lubricant is needed.
