MOLYKOTE™ Selector Guide

Greases – solid to semisolid materials consisting of a lubrication fluid, thickening agent and additives; used on rolling element bearings and other moving parts.  

Pastes and Solid Lube – pastes are grease like materials that contain a very high percentage of solid lubricants; used for assembly and lubrication of highly loaded, slow-moving parts or threaded fasteners.  

Compounds – Grease like materials composed of silicone fluids and silica fillers; used for their sealing, dielectric, nonmetal-to-metal lubricating properties.  

Anti-Friction Coatings – Anti-friction coatings are used for corrosion protection, to reduce surface friction, for dry lubrication of automotive parts. When applied, anti-friction coatings cure to form dry solid lubricant coatings that are bonded to the surface.  

Oils and Fluids – lubricating fluids fortified with carefully selected additives to provide optimum performance and service life while maximising protection of the equipment and machinery they are designed to lubricate.  

Dispersions – finely divided solid lubricants suspended in lubricating fluid; dispersions are preferred when it is necessary to apply lubricants in liquid form. 

Selecting the right product is key to the success of any project, the MOLYKOTE™ selector guide will help inform any decision.

Featured Product - MOLYKOTE™ 1000

MOLYKOTE™ 1000 Paste is a solid lubricant paste for bolted metal joints that contains no lead or nickel. This paste has been used successfully for cylinder head bolts, nozzle head screw of plastic injection moulding machines, bolted joints in the chemical industry and rings of centrifuges. 

Features

  • Can be used over a wide range of temperature (30ºC to +650ºC) 
  • High load-bearing capacity 
  • Enables non-destructive dismantling, even after long use at high temperatures 
  • Coefficient of friction unchanged in the area of oiled bolts, even after several bolt retightening and loosening processes 
  • Good corrosion protection

Applications

Suitable for bolted joints that are subjected to high temperatures up to 650°C (1202°F) and to corrosive effects, and which, after assembling and the initial operation, have to be re-tightened or disconnected. In order to ensure constant pre-stressing forces, uniform and steady coefficients of friction of the lubricant are necessary. 

Used successfully for cylinder head bolts, nozzle head screws of plastic injection moulding machines, bolted joints in the chemical industry, and for the tension rings of centrifuges.

Coefficient of Friction

  • Screw test - µ thread 0.13 
  • Screw test - µ head 0.08
