A new thermally stable organic resin is described. Results are presented for the development of polybenzimidazole (PBI) resin-bonded solid-film lubricants. These solid-film lubricants are composed of molybdenum disulfide, antimony trioxide, and the PBI resins. Steps followed for mixing, applying, and curing these films are presented. The test equipment and procedures used to test the film formulations are described. Wear-life comparisons to conventional commercially available resin-bonded films qualified under MIL-L-8937 are presented.
