Depends upon what you are trying to accomplish. Different coatings have different applications. Dry film, a/k/a solid film lubricants (SFL) are primarily used for scuff resistance. Abradable powder coating (APC) is primarily used for clearance control. Most coatings also result in friction reduction along with their primary benefit.
