  • Silent blocks
  • Stabilizer bars and bushings
  • Ball-joint bellows
  • Strut bearings
  • Shock absorbers (sealing lubricants)
  • Leaf springs on trucks and SUVs

Molykote brand lubricants are made for harsh environments and operating conditions
You can depend on Molykote brand Smart Lubrication to deliver the results you need for reliable suspension system lubrication. Our high-performance solutions perform over a wide service temperature range and resist water washout, abrasion and oxidation. Choose from:

  • Heavy-to-light consistency greases with good compatibility with plastics and rubber, many fortified with solid lubricants, and fluorinated options for exposure to fuels
  • Severe-duty anti-seize pastes with high solid-lubricant content, especially made for handling heavy loads at low sliding speeds
