SST Hi Lubricity Coating

SST Hi Lubricity  Coating

 

TAKING THE COEFFICIENT OF FRICTION TO A NEW ALL TIME LOW

 

 

SST is a ceramic coating, designed to be used, on any rigid or semi rigid surface experiencing sliding, rotating or oscillating friction. It provides a lubricating film that reduces friction, inhibits galling and seizing and in some instances can aid in dispersing heat.  The appearance is generally black and takes on a slight sheen upon burnishing.  This coating is very slippery and provides an extremely low coefficient of friction.

 

 

 

  • EXTREME PRESSURE DRY-FILM LUBRICANT that is designed to carry loads of 350,000 PSI

  • REQUIRES NO CLEARANCE CHANGES to compensate for the coating (only .0001″-.0003″ thick)

  • OIL RETAINING

  • AIDS IN REDUCING BEARING TEMPERATURES

  • PROTECTS FROM LUBRICATION LAG AT “COLD START-UP”

  • COMBINES THE DURABILITY OF A CERAMIC RESIN with the lubricity of a ceramic lubricant

 

 


The two most important components are the binders and lubricating ingredients.  Without a good binder the coating will not stay in place and will simply cold flow or buff off in operation.  Similar coatings using the same pigments but different binding systems can show a wide variation in load carrying capabilities, ranging from 100,000 psi to over 350,000 psi.  The pigments determine the actual lubricating potential.  PTFE, as an example, is listed as having the lowest coefficient of friction (COE). However, under high speed and load, the COE of PTFE degrades while that of MOS2 (Moly) improves, until it is significantly better than PTFE.  Choose wisely when shopping for the ultimate protection for your hi bucko motor. We like high speed and big loads. Moly is the ticket.

BEARINGS


SST has excellent anti-scuffing properties beneath all conditions. It is specifically designed to permeate the bearing surface, increasing oil retention to protect against intense heat and extreme pressure. This dramatically reduces bearing wear and flaking, and adds an extra level of lubricant to the bearing. This also protects the bearing from heat build up and excessive wear.

SST is designed for durability and reliability in all extreme racing conditions. It is especially valuable during oil starvation and becomes the primary lubricant protecting the longevity of the bearing assembly. It also prevents excessive wear and eliminates failure caused by lubrication lag after engine start up.

 

 

 

 

CAMSHAFTS 

 

When you have spring pressures off the scale, and RPMs to the moon, camshafts more than ever have to take A LOT of abuse…not to mention that critical break-in period can also be catastrophic if not done properly (especially with the lack of zinc and phosphorous in today’s oils).

Using SST will not only give you a “smooth as silk” break-in (no pun intended), but will also give you cam longevity and reduced rotational friction. Like to live up there in RPMs? Get this. Do you have (or want to have) stiff springs? Get this. What we’re talking about here is taking that bump stick and making it the best it possibly can be. Those looking for maximum stretch of the performance dollar, this is the ticket right here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

OIL PUMP/DRIVELINE GEARS

 

FINALLY something that can be used on these kind of parts! SST can be applied to oil pump drive gears, pinions, tranny gears, output shafts, input shafts, basically ANYTHING that meshes with teeth. SST will greatly reduce the frictional properties of these most often over-looked components. SST was created specially for xTreme temps, xTreme speeds, and xTreme pressures that are commonly associated with geared components.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WHY WE USE IT

 One of the obvious reasons for using a lubricating coating on such an abused surfaced is to reduce friction, which improves wear, extends part life and frees up “free” horsepower that is normally lost to friction. It is because of these reasons that we coat the rod and main bearings, camshafts, and oil pump gears as standard procedure in our race engine building program. The gains have been seen, more power is given, more protection is evident, tests are conclusive, and the advantages are clear. We took it to the bank, and never looked back.
