Abstract:

A resin-bonded solid film lubricant was applied to grit blasted steel, zinc phosphatized steel, and preheated zinc phosphatized steel. The coating was then cured at temperatures from 200 to 500 F for times ranging from 10 to 180 minutes. The effect of these cure conditions on wear life and corrosion protection were determined. The following information was obtained from this investigation 1 Grit blasted steel is inferior to the other two substrates. 2 At cure temperatures above 300 F, the resin-bonded solid film lubricant does not prevent the loss of water of hydration from the zinc phosphate coating and the resultant loss in corrosion pro tection. 3 No one set of cure conditions gives optimum wear life and corrosion protection. 4 Wear life increase with increasing cure time and temperature. 5 Corrosion protection in creases with decreasing cure time and temperature. 6 Cure conditions depend on the application for which the resin-bonded solid film lubricant is to be used.
