Energy Transmission and Distribution Solutions  

Energy Transmission and Distribution Solutions

Increase equipment reliability and protect system integrity.

Advanced specialty lubricants, high-performance adhesives and sealants, and durable silicone and fluorosilicone greases help prevent outages.

Guard the grid with trusted solutions for Transmission and Distribution

For efficient energy transmission and distribution, keeping critical components such as switches and circuit breakers operating as designed is essential. With extensive service areas, the need for continuous monitoring and long maintenance intervals, maintaining system strength and dependable power availability is a considerable challenge. Any weak link due to age, defects or improper maintenance can cause limited or system-wide outages.

We can help increase equipment reliability and protect system integrity. Potential solutions from Dow Corning® to help you guard the grid in Transmission and Distribution include:

  • Dependable lubrication for circuit breakers, switchgear and disconnects
  • Heat- oil- and weather-resistant seals and gaskets
  • Dry-film anti-friction coatings for long-term lubrication in dusty, dirty environments
  • Anti-seize pastes for achieving proper tightening torque on tower mounting bolts and aiding nondestructive assembly/disassembly of threaded connections
  • Silicone and fluorosilicone greases and compounds for lubrication and resistance to corrosion, tracking and flashover
  • Form-in-place sealants for field-service gasketing repairs
