Tungsten Disulfide Deposition

  1. Jan 15, 2010 #1
    I'm looking into using Tungsten disulfide as a lubricant in the form of a thin metal coating. Now I've been made to understand that it can be applied by various methods i.e burnishing, impingement and pulse laser deposited.

    From what I gather the method of applying this solid lubricant affects its wear life, is this true or am I misunderstanding this. If so would this be true for all solid lubricant or thin coatings or particularly for dichalcogenides like WS2.

    Could anyone refer me to a book or paper that explains this?

    Thank you
