In general, the same lubrication guidelines are valid for NoWear coated bearings as for standard bearings (→ Lubrication). However, NoWear coated bearings can operate reliably even when adequate surface separation cannot be achieved by the lubricant (κ < 1). NoWear can prevent direct metal-to-metal contact between the rolling elements and raceways. It might be possible to reduce the need for EP and AW additives in the lubricant when using a NoWear coated bearing, as the coating already acts as a powerful additive.
