Ensure performance with proper use

Molykote D-708 Anti-Friction Coating and Molykote D-709 Anti-Friction Coating(PDF) are blends of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) solid lubricants in a resin-solvent system.
  • Reduce wear on metal-to-metal and metal-to-plastic surfaces
  • Quick drying, fast curing, nonstaining
  • Designed to reduce coefficient of friction
  • Effective when exposed to dust, dirt and moisture
  • Protection against rust and corrosion
  • Durable over a wide service-temperature range
 Molykote® brand anti-friction coatings (AFCs) offer cleaner processing with less dust, staining and contamination.
  • Strong bonding requires clean, dry surfaces with possible pretreatments needed.
  • Determine coating method based on component size, shape, weight or quantity; spraying, brushing, dipping, screen printing and roll coating are used.
  • Coating thickness depends on the application load, environment, temperature and speed.
