Anti-Friction Coatings

Anti-Friction Coatings

Dry-film bonded lubrication can provide long-lasting wear protection

Select Molykote® brand anti‑friction coatings from Dow Corning for wear protection and lubrication in dusty, dirty, humid environments and on parts not easily accessed for maintenance.

Protect your components with
long-lasting, dry-film lubrication

Often described as "lubricating paints," Molykote anti‑friction coatings (AFCs) provide a dry, slippery film that improves surface roughness and optimizes friction on the wear surface, even under extreme loads and operating conditions. These Molykote® Smart Lubrication™ solutions offer you:

  • Dry, clean lubrication that does not attract or collect dust, dirt or moisture
  • Durable lubrication without evaporation or oxidation
  • Resistance to rust and corrosion
  • Fully effective start-up lubrication even after prolonged shutdown

Molykote anti-friction coatings contain solid lubricants in various binder-solvent systems. They can be easily applied and quickly cured to a dry film. Dow Corning maintains a global network of AFC coating specialists that can ensure proper application with reduced waste.
