IT-9570 Dramatic increase in the price of MoS2 has driven an urgent need for search for alternatives, in the recent past. IT-9570–a solid lubricant powder serves as a drop-in substitute & replaces molybdenum disulphide in most of the applications where the latter is used. It is a man-made lubricant powder and hence can also be tailor made to serve very specific applications. IT-9570 is used as a solid lubricant component in lubricating greases and pastes, in dispersions (aqueous, none-aqueous), as an additive to polymers, or as an lubricant for cold forging/extrusion. The product features high load carrying ability, reduces wear under influence of load and temperature and controls co-efficient of friction. Unlike Moly, it does not breakdown releasing sulphur and thus provides corrosion protection. It is non-toxic.
