Effect of MoS2 Films on Scoring Resistance of Gears
The article "Effect of MoS2 Films on Scoring Resistance of Gears" appeared in the July/August 1986 issue of Gear Technology.
Gears are currently run at high speed and under high load. It is a significant problem to develop lubricants and gears with high load-carrying capacity against scoring. The particles of molybdenum disulfide have been considered to increase the scoring resistance of the gears. The wear characteristics and the scoring resistance of the gears lubricated with MoS2 paste and MoS2 powder have been investigated. (1) However, there are few investigations on the performance of the gears coated with MoS2 film with respect to scoring.
