Lubrication of Molybdenum Disulfide MoS2
As the world deals with potential supply shortages, oil prices are soaring again, with more dramatic spikes and sudden drops expected.
For consumers, that means more expensive gas for longer - prices at the pump remain above $4 a gallon. For the economy, that means more inflation. In addition to the pressure on consumers, any business that relies on oil -- from airlines and truck drivers to chemical companies and plastics producers -- will face higher costs.
Mr Pickering estimates that 2m to 3m barrels a day of Russian oil shipped by water are frozen out of the market with no direct buyers. Due to the soaring oil price, the price of the MoS2 powder in the chemical industry will also be greatly affected. He said China and India are continuing to buy Russian crude. "I'm sure there will be others willing to take on more over time," he said. Mr Pickering said he did not expect oil to return to $130 a barrel, but added that it could happen. Francisco Branch, head of commodities and derivatives at Bank of America, said the US market was ready for cyclical price spikes and price swings in the MoS2 powder.
In addition to reducing friction, the lubricant can also reduce wear during operation, reduce the operating temperature, minimize corrosion on the metal surface and help to remove contaminants from the system.
The general lubricating oil has been unable to meet the lubrication requirements of the equipment. In this case, solid lubricants with better performance emerge as the times require.
There are many kinds of solid lubricants, such as graphite, molybdenum disulfide, graphite fluoride, tungsten disulfide, boron nitride and so on. Molybdenum disulfide is the most widely used, and boron nitride and graphite fluoride have the best performance.
What is Molybdenum Disulfide MoS2?
Molybdenum disulfide is a solid powder made from natural molybdenum concentrate powder, which is the modern "king of advanced solid lubrication". It is lead gray to black solid powder, greasy in contact, odorless, and belongs to hexagonal or rhombohedral system. Similar to graphite, with metallic luster.
It has the advantages of high temperature resistance, radiation resistance, high vacuum resistance, corrosion resistance and extreme pressure resistance, so it has been widely used as an additive in grease, powder metallurgy, modified plastics, spraying and other industries.
What is Molybdenum Disulfide MoS2 Used For?
Can be used as friction improver (friction reducer), antiwear agent, extreme pressure agent and antioxidant. It is widely used in aviation industry (vacuum anti-radiation lubrication), automobile industry (fixture and parts), anti-bite industry (mechanical industry) (general lubrication), mining industry, military industry, shipbuilding industry, heavy industry, bearing industry, gear industry and assembly industry, etc. it is also used as additives for various lubricants, manufacturing molybdenum compounds, catalytic hydrogenation desulfurization catalysts, gas storage materials, photocell materials and so on.
Almost all markets using greases and almost all types of grease thickeners use molybdenum disulfide, including lithium complexes, aluminum complexes and polyureas. It is also considered to be the best additive for composite titanium-based grease with its inherent high load-carrying capacity and even better performance.
In general, grease contains 1 to 2% MoS2, and the key parameters are surface roughness, load carrying and speed. For rougher metal surfaces, larger MoS2 particle sizes are ideal because they fill deep valleys and help to form a smooth surface. At a given MoS2 concentration, small and medium-sized particles will provide better load-bearing capacity. At the same time, due to the high acid value, very small particles may cause some corrosion problems. Generally speaking, the medium particle size of about 6m is the most commonly used MoS2 particle size in grease.
At present, molybdenum disulfide has become an indispensable and irreplaceable industrial additive product.

Inflationary pressures on Canadians continue to rise. The consumer-price index rose 6.7% in March from a year earlier, the biggest increase since January 1991, according to the latest figures from Statistics Canada.
On a month-on-month basis, Canada's CPI rose 1.4 percent in March, also accelerating from February's 1.0 percent rise.
Prices in the eight major sectors covered by the statistics continued to rise. The uptrend comes against the backdrop of continued price pressures in the Canadian housing market, widespread supply chain constraints, and geopolitical conflicts, according to CBC. A variety of factors have affected energy, commodity, and agricultural markets. Meanwhile, Canada's employment picture continued to improve in March, with the unemployment rate falling to a record low and the average hourly earnings of employees rising.
Excluding gasoline, Canada's CPI rose 5.5 percent year on year in March. It is also the highest since comparable data began in 1999.
The widespread supply chain constraints and geopolitical conflicts are expected to continue to affect the prices of the MoS2 powder.
