Tested on the Toughest Proving Grounds

We first started working with the Rock Island Arsenal on DFLs in 1961. Since then, the U.S. Army has continued to use Sandstrom coatings to inhibit corrosion and reduce friction in its weapons. And the commercial weapons industry regularly turns to Sandstrom for quality products as well. Our external coatings offer superior corrosion resistance for upper and lower receivers, as well as internal components. We also provide original and maintenance coatings for gun magazines—and tens of millions of bullets get coated each year with our moly coatings.

Poxylube® #887 Dry Film Lubricant is a single component epoxy formulated with PTFE to provide coating, fluid resistance and corrosion protection. This heat cured material prevents corrosion, galling, seizing and fretting. Once Poxylube® #887 has been applied to a properly prepared surface and allowed to cure, it is virtually unaffected by atmospheric and fretting corrosion, solvents, acids, oils and degreasers. Poxylube® #887 can be applied to all metallic and nonmetallic surfaces by spray or dip application.

Sandstrom 28A is used more than any other Sandstrom product by the U.S. Department of Defense due to the excellent corrosion resistance and load carrying capacity it offers for convenient and practical in-field application.

28A is listed on the United States’ Deptartment of Defense QPL for MIL-L-23398 Types I & II, NATO Code S-749 and QPL for MIL-PRF-46147 Type I Color 1 Forms 1 & 2.

Sandstrom 28A SFL is a lacquer-like coating containing molybdenum disulfide and corrosion inhibiting pigments. This air drying material prevents corrosion, galling, seizing and fretting. It is a low-friction coating that exhibits long wear life when operated at -320°F to +300°F under loads exceeding 100,000 psi. Sandstrom 28A should be applied where baking with the longer wearing, heat cured #099, Sandstrom 9A or LC-300 is not desirable or practical. 

Once 28A has been applied to a properly prepared surface and allowed to cure, it is virtually unaffected by atmospheric and fretting corrosion, acids, oils and degreasers. Sandstrom 28A can be applied to all metallic and non-metallic surfaces by spray application.

Offered in bulk dispersion, aerosol cans or marker pens (now includes a brush tip), Sandstrom 28A is toxic heavy metals and HAP-solvent free. *See Technical Data Sheet for more details.

Sandstrom 9A Dry Film Lubricant is a paint-like coating containing molybdenum disulfide and corrosion inhibiting pigments. This heat curing material prevents corrosion, galling, seizing and fretting. It is a low-friction coating which exhibits long wear life when operated at -320°F to +500°F under loads exceeding 100,000 psi. Sandstrom 9A should be applied where maximum wear life and corrosion protection from a DFL are required. Sandstrom 9A may be applied by brush, dip or spray method to a wide variety of surfaces. After it is heat cured, 9A is virtually unaffected by atmospheric and fretting corrosion, solvents, acids, oils or degreasers and is not re-softened at elevated temperatures.

Sandstrom #099 Dry Film Lubricant is a paint-like coating containing molybdenum disulfide and corrosion inhibiting pigments. This heat curing material prevents corrosion, galling, seizing, and fretting. It is a low-friction coating that exhibits long wear life when operated at -320°F to +500°F under loads exceeding 100,000 psi. Sandstrom #099 should be applied where maximum wear life and corrosion protection from a DFL are required. Sandstrom #099 may be applied by brush, dip or spray method to a wide variety of surfaces. After it is heat cured, #099 is virtually unaffected by atmospheric and fretting corrosion, solvents, acids, oils, degreasers and is not re-softened at elevated temperatures.

Sandstrom LC-300 is a lead free lacquer-like Dry Film Lubricant containing molybdenum disulfide and corrosion-inhibiting pigments. This Heat Curing material prevents corrosion, galling, seizing and fretting. It is a low-friction coating that exhibits long wear life when operated at -320°F to +400°F under loads exceeding 100,000 psi. LC-300 may be applied by brush, dip or spray method. After it is heat cured, LC-300 is virtually unaffected by atmospheric and fretting corrosion, solvents, acids, oils and degreasers and is not re-softened at elevated temperatures
