When a mobile suit is equipped with magnetic coating, the joints are covered
with a very thin layer of magnetically charged metal. Both sides have the
same polarity. As like polarities repel each other, the joints therefore
have a slight gap between them. This eliminates the friction caused by the
contact of the surfaces, and increases the movement speed of the joint,
therefore increasing the reaction speed of the MS.
