Includes Lubolid® additive packages for friction linings.
Dow Corning Corporation has announced a new lineup of Molykote®
high-performance lubricants for automotive brake system applications.
“Selecting the right lubricants is one of the top items for designing and
engineering brake systems,” said Mitsuhiro Sakamaki, Molykote Global
Automotive Leader. “Our engineering support and consulting help customers
identify potential problems early, so costly, time-consuming design changes are
kept to a minimum. We can even customize products, eliminating the guesswork
that runs up costs and delays production.”
Molykote lubricants are designed to work under extremes of load,
speed and temperature, as well as in exposure to water and dust. They also
offer good compatibility with elastomers commonly used in automotive brake
systems, such as EPDM, neoprene, and others.
Brake components and the Molykote solutions are:
Proper lubrication of these components is critical for long term performance
and safety. The use of quality products helps reduce sticking, brake noise and
vibration of calipers and their components. This is important when working with
electrically integrated brake systems, such as anti-lock brake systems.
Molykote G-807 silicone compound is a stiff, non-melting compound
for rubber boots that reduces friction and provides good corrosion and water
Molykote G-407 grease minimizes fretting corrosion of the guide pins
in floating caliper designs and is compatible with rubber dust boots that
protect these pins.
Molykote M-77 extreme pressure lubricating paste reduces noise and
squeak at braking.
Molykote AS-880N grease is specially designed for preventing squeak
of brake shims to reducing vibration from disc pads.
Molykote 7439-plus improves lubricity, anti-corrosion and water
resistance for links and adjuster screws.
Molykote 822M and PG-54 greases offer good lubricity between rubber
and plastics at low and high temperatures, keeps better sealing, and help
prolong the life of critical components.
Molykote BG 20 high performance grease is suitable for lubrication of
needle bearings in antilock systems under middle and high loadings, high speeds
Molykote 33 grease performs in a wide temperature range (-70C to
+180C), prevents corrosion, and provides good water resistance and
Air compressor for commercial vehicles
Molykote FS 3452 especially suitable for long-term lubrication,
because of extremely low oxidization and evaporation tendency.
Dow Corning also offers Lubolid® friction control additives, which are
designed for use in brake pads, clutch lining, linings for drum brakes on
personal or commercial vehicles; including extreme heavy duty applications such
as railroading applications. These can be easily customized into pad
formulations to achieve the desired level of performance. Lubolid can reduce
fading, noise and vibration; reduce pad and rotor wear; improve friction
recovery; and stabilize friction level.
Every Molykote automotive product and service is backed by a
commitment to provide the design and processing answers customers need to
enhance body components, chassis and brake systems, electrical components, fuel
and air systems, and powertrain components. For more information about Dow
