The Contribution of Thin PFPE Lubricants to Slider–Disk Spacing

We have investigated the effect of the molecular weight (MW) and film thickness of a perfluoropolyether lubricant, Zdol, on the slider–disk spacing loss, or clearance. The major conclusion of this work is that Zdol films as thin as 10 Å can reduce the slider–disk clearance by 2 nm or more in the mol...
