Q. What is the
difference between Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS2) and Teflon (PTFE) in
terms of Solid Lubricants? A. Both materials are very
slippery. Molybdenum Disulfide, or Moly, is a naturally occurring
inert mineralization that will sustain loads in excess of 400,000 psi,
while PTFE, a manufactured chemical, can only sustain loads in the 350
to 450 psi range. MoS2 remains effective up to its melting point
exceeding 2,000°F while PTFE forms a noxious gas near 650°F. Additionally, PTFE particle
size is inconsistent and generally too large to remain in suspension. PTFE tends to “ball-up” or congeal at high
Chain Lube you say???? Replace my regular gooey messy flingy tarlike petroleum based chain lube?
The Drislide Bike Aid lubricant is just as valuable, on chains, as it is to the inside cable sleeve and cable. And don’t forget the speedometer cable too!
The Mineral Spirits, being the carrier in the Drislide, will carry the moly, into the pins of the chain. It’ll creep into the smallest spaces.
The mineral spirits evaporate in 10 to 15 minutes, leaving the moly content, across the chain links and down in the pins, for continuous lubrication of the chain.
Extends the life, of the chain. Even prevent a little stretching, of the chain.
Works in hot or cold conditions. Wide temperature range. Pressure limitation is 100,000 p.s.i.
So once applied, the Drislide is not going anywhere.
