Powertrain Component Lubrication

Improve reliability and service life of hotter-running powertrain components

Molykote® brand specialty lubricants from Dow Corning are Smart Lubrication™ choices that can help you reduce wear and increase durability of powertrain components.

Reliable specialty lubricants for powertrain components

For reliable powertrain component lubrication involving searing heat, tighter tolerances and extended service intervals, you can choose from a complete line of Molykote specialty lubricants:

  • Greases with excellent resistance to thermal degradation, excellent lubricity at high speeds and long-term lubrication between all types of materials
  • Pastes with high solid-lubricant content for smoothing initial run-in and handling heavy loads at low speeds
  • Anti-friction and anti-seize coatings for dry-film lubrication of assembly fasteners and inaccessible parts
  • Dielectric lubricating compounds for electrical/electronic devices

Molykote lubricants can outperform many organics and other synthetics in harsh environments
The right lubricant for the job costs little, but the wrong choice costs plenty. With fully customized technical support, you can rely on Molykote brand Smart Lubrication for:

  • A wide service temperature range from as low as -65°C (-85°F) to as high as 250°C (482°F)
  • Performance under slow-medium-fast speeds and low-medium-heavy loads
  • Resistance to water washout, abrasion and environmental attack

Application-matched and ready for your component lubrication challenges

  • Cooling and climate-control components
  • Static and dynamic engine applications
  • Transmission components
  • Fuel and air systems
  • Driveline for FWD, RWD and AWD drive-train designs
