Dry-film lubricant

solid material deliberately deposited between two moving surfaces to prevent metal-to-metal contact, thus reducing friction and wear. Such materials are especially useful in the region of boundary lubrication, and for lubrication under special conditions of extremely high or low temperature where usual lubricants are inadequate. Some examples are graphite or molybdenum disulfide.
