Soft Metal Film Lubrication

Soft metal films. Many soft metals such as lead, gold, silver, copper, and zinc, possess low shear strengths and can be used as lubricants by depositing them as thin films on hard substrates. Deposition methods include electroplating, evaporating, sputtering, and ion plating. These films are most useful for high temperature applications up to 1000C (1832F) and roller bearing applications where sliding is minimal.
