Kashima Coat is a lubricated anodizing developed by the Miyaki Corporation by adding a lubricating function to hard anodizing with the goal of enhancing wear resistance. Kashima Coat is created by filling the millions of pores of the anodizing (anodic oxide) film generated via primary electrolysis with the lubricating material molybdenum disulfide.
Molybdenum disulfide is a solid material with lubricating properties. Molybdenum is widely used in engine lubricants and grease for high performance applications and now highly sought after in the suspension industry.
Kashima Coat requires components to be shipped, disassembled and sent out for coating, turn around time is 4 weeks.
