If you are looking to coat your own components or if you have received an order/RFQ for a part that requires any of the following:
- DICRONITE DRY LUBE
- TUNGSTEN DISULFIDE COATING
- DL-5 LUBRICATION
- WS2 COATING
you are in the right place.
How do I get Dicronite®?
You may be wondering, “How do I buy Dicronite®?” or “Can I apply Dicronite® /WS2 myself?”
When searching for a tungsten disulfide (WS2) coating, it’s important to know application of the coating by impingement, or high velocity spray (similar to sand blasting), is typically your best option for optimal performance.
This high velocity impingement process is best provided by a licensed Dicronite® facility. Getting parts coated with Dicronite® is easy! All you have to do is:
Tell us about your application & receive a quote.
Send or deliver your parts to one of our 11 worldwide locations.
Receive your expertly coated parts with little lead time.
Is there a Dicronite® facility near me?
Dicronite® has 11 licensed WS2 application facilities worldwide. 6 locations in the US, and 5 international. Based on your requirements and preferences, we will connect you with the one that meets your needs.
Can Dicronite® meet any quality certifications?
NADCAP, AS9100/ISO9001, and ITAR accredited locations are available. Note that requirements for certifications will influence what locations can provide you service. Be sure to specify in your RFQ and our team will connect you with the ws2 coating facility that best fits your application’s needs.
Are there masking, special handling or special processing capabilities?
Components with regions that are not allowed to be coated can be masked to avoid coverage of the specified area. However, requiring masking may result in a higher cost for coating service.
In addition, parts with special handling or processing requirements may also cost more to be coated. The selected Dicronite® facility will be able to discuss the details with you and ensure your application’s needs are being met.
Can you send me some Dicronite®?
The Dicronite® ws2 coating process is provided as a service conducted by licensed Dicronite® facilities. This ensures you receive only the highest quality. Raw coating material is not sold.
However, if you are still considering whether or not to incorporate it into your application, we have the ability to conduct low volume trials to help assist with your testing of the product.
How much does this Dicronite® WS2 coating service cost?
Each Dicronite® facility is independently owned and operated. This means that each facility generates independent quotes. Submit an RFQ to get pricing.
What is the standard lead time for a coating job?
The standard lead time is between one and four days, exclusive of any transport. However, each Dicronite® facility will provide its own lead time when issuing a quote. Many Dicronite® facilities offer options to expedite your order.
My drawing requires a WS2 coating. Does Dicronite® satisfy this requirement?
Yes. Dicronite® is processed to the AMS2530 specification for tungsten disulfide (WS2). While Dicronite® meets the generic tungsten disulfide, WS2, and/or AMS2530 requirement, please note that the Dicronite® DL-5® specification cannot be met by generic WS2 coatings.
If you have a drawing that requires Dicronite®, you must have your parts coated by one of our licensed facilities.
