Molykote® from Dow is a wide range of high-performance lubricants that are used and trusted for over 60 years by engineers all over the world. Formulated to withstand heavy loads, dirty, dusty or chemically harsh environments, temperature and speed extremes, they can solve difficult lubrication problems and also ideal for normal service lubrication.

There are six classes of lubricants from which to chose:

  • Pastes – Grease-like materials containing a very high percentage of solid lubricants. Used for assembly and lubrication of highly loaded, slow moving parts for threaded fasteners.
  • Greases – Solid to semisolid materials consisting of a lubricating fluid, thickening agent and additives. Used on rolling element bearings and other moving parts.
  • Compounds – Grease-like materials composed of silicone fluids and silica fillers. Used for their sealing, dielectric, non-metal-to-metal lubricating and release properties.
  • High- Performance Industrial Lubricating Oils– Based on hydroprocessed mineral oils or synthetic base stocks such as polyalphaolefin (PAO) and esters.
  • Coatings – “Lubricating paints”; when applied, these materials cure to form dry, solid lubricant coatings that are bonded to the surface.
  • Dispersions – Finely divided solid lubricants suspended in lubricating fluids.
