Industry Solutions

Control costs, quality and productivity
for optimized lean production.


Increase productivity with effective solutions for Automotive Manufacturing

From the earliest prototypes to the latest model launches, time from design to delivery is growing shorter for vehicle manufacturers worldwide. The requirements for building in quality while taking out costs have never been greater. Maintaining production equipment to comply with process specifications is a non-stop challenge. You need to prevent problems.

We can help you control costs, quality and productivity for optimized lean production with proven, effective problem-solvers for high-performance lubricating, bonding and sealing.

Proven, high-performance lubrication

  • In the extreme heat of a drying system for a vehicle painting line, synthetic, non-silicone Molykote® HP-870 Grease replaced an ester oil-based grease to increase maintenance intervals and gain greater line uptime.
  • For longer-lasting lubrication of tire vulcanization molds, tire makers replaced inadequate mineral-oil grease with easy-to-use Molykote® HP-500 grease to reduce service frequency and increase tire output.
