New brochure from Dow Corning Oil & Gas Solutions describes how Molykote® brand specialty lubricants and Dow Corning® brand severe-duty sealants get tough jobs done right.

MIDLAND, MICHIGAN, USA: Oil and gas producers strive for increased equipment reliability and added service life. They demand operational and environmental safety, and they work to eliminate downtime, reduce maintenance and prevent losses. And they always look for ways to increase output. Dow Corning’s effective solutions for extreme conditions help them get these tough jobs done right.

Whether facing challenges on salty offshore platforms, in dusty oilfields, at safety-critical terminals or along high-pressure pipelines, oil and gas producers want proven solutions. Molykote® brand specialty lubricants and Dow Corning® brand severe-duty sealants are designed to help solve critical problems that occur during exploration and extraction, transport, storage, and processing.

  • Molykote® brand Smart Lubrication™ solutions include severe-duty greases, anti-seize pastes, anti-friction coatings, and silicone oils and greases.
