    Is it a “lubricant” or “paint” pen?

      It is a solid film lubricant – graphite in it must cover like paint

      It youtube videos of solid film lubricant are anything to go by, it looks a lot like powder coating.

        Come again? Not quite understanding what your saying

          that first “It” should have been an “If”

          I was (attempting) to say was that from the youtube videos I saw, the application of solid film lubricant appears similar to powder coating. It looks like you’re spray painting, but the paint is a completely dry powder substance.

          Sometimes paint or a coating can act as a lubricant. Check out powder-coated bullet for a firearms-related version of this idea.

    Solid film lubricants are paint-like coatings of very fine particles of lubricating pigment blended with a binder and other additives. The lubricant is applied to a substrate by spray, dip or brush methods and, once cured, creates a solid film which repels water, reduces friction and increases the wear life of the substrate to which it has been applied. Certain film lubricants also offer additional properties such as corrosion inhibition. Solid film lubricants are used in the automotive, transportation and aerospace industries.
