Choose Molykote high-performance lubricants for help reducing NVH
Molykote specialty lubricants offer you the range of choices you need to meet stringent NVH-reduction objectives. Choose from:

  • Heavy-duty greases that provide long-term lubrication and noise damping on metal-to-metal and metal-to-plastic parts in continuous or intermittent contact
  • Greases and pastes that are formulated for compatibility with dissimilar materials, special abrasion resistance and durability in searing heat and freezing cold
  • Lighter-duty pastes and lubricating compounds that provide reliable lubrication and noise control on components operating at low-to-medium speeds
  • Dry-film anti-friction coatings that resist dust or dirt buildup, provide a solid barrier against vibration-caused fretting corrosion and keep parts operating smoothly
