MBI COATINGS, INC. – THINLON COATINGS

MBI’s THINLON™ coatings are designed to be used on any rigid or semi rigid surface for dry lubricity, corrosion protection, release, thermal barrier, and a variety of other properties. MBI offers a Thinlon nano-ceramic polymer formulation that promotes release and protection in surface-to-surface contact areas, thus reducing friction and wear between surfaces. The exceptional low resistant to shear enables the MBI Thinlon coated surface to operate with extremely low friction.

The coating thickness can range from less than a micrometer to few tens of micrometers depending on the solution and application. Normally, with a much thinner coating, it can perform comparable to or better than conventional release coatings, anodizing/conversion oxide or organic primer/paint-on coatings.

Low Friction w/ Built-In Lubricity: The very low friction properties of our Thinlon coatings make them suitable as dry lubricants like on slide valves, piston skirts, and gears etc.

Anti-Galling and Corrosion: MBI’s Thinlon coatings are designed to create a corrosion barrier and a permanent self-lubricating surface to impede galling and the seizing of components.

Wide Operating Temperature Range: Thinlon has the ability to retain physical properties through a huge range of temperatures, up to 1700°F in some cases.
