Molykote® Lubrication Technology

Molykote® specialty lubricants are designed to support reliable quality, down sizing, prolonged life for customers' products, improve product startup and reduce costs. Proper lubrication selection can also prevent component failures, eliminate costly warranty callbacks, and improve customer satisfaction. They are designed to increase:

  • Performance by achieving long-life lubrication
  • Safety by holding up even in the most difficult environments
  • Reliability since they keep working under extreme loads, speed and temperatures

Our multi-technology products come in five forms - select a link to view our products in each category:

Product recommendations will vary based on user's performance requirements and application conditions.  Please consult with a Dow Corning technical expert to evaluate your specific needs.

Designed for dynamic metal-to-metal, metal-to-rubber, metal-to-plastic and plastic-to-plastic applications.  They have excellent resistance to thermal degradation and are fortified with solid lubricant additive technology to provide effective lubrication under extreme load conditions.  High performance fluorinated greases extend service at higher temperatures and loads and in harsh chemical environments.
Silicone compounds are grease like lubricants which are resistant to oxidation while maintaining their properties over a wide temperature range. They are ideal as O-ring lubricants and as release agents between metal and elastomers.
These lubricants have high concentrations of solid lubricants. They are used where a high concentration of solid lubricant is required, such as initial run-in and areas exposed to high loads.
Lubricating Solids
These lubricants are primarily used as additives for plastics and friction lining formulations to improve wear resistance and control friction
 Anti-Friction Coatings
In simple terms, anti-friction coatings can be thought of as lubricating paints. They typically contain a solid lubricant and a binder dispersed in solvent carrier. The coating forms a dry lubricating film to help prevent corrosion and is aesthetically pleasing. Anti-friction coatings are ideal for dusty environments or for inaccessible areas that need long-term lubrication
