MOLYKOTE® Product Lines

Product Name Description
Greases Solid to semisolid materials consisting of a lubricating fluid, thickening agent and additives. Used on rolling element bearings and other moving parts.
Compounds Greaselike materials composed of silicone fluids and silica fillers. Used for their sealing, dielectric and nonmetal-to-metal lubricating properties.
Pastes Greaselike materials containing a very high percentage of solid lubricants. Used for assembly and lubrication of highly loaded, slow-moving parts or threaded fasteners.
Oils & fluids Lubricating fluids fortified with carefully selected additives to provide optimum performance and service life while maximizing protection.
Dispersions Finely divided solid lubricants suspended in lubricating fluids; preferred when it is necessary to apply solid lubricants in liquid form.
Anti-friction coatings “Lubricating paints”; when applied, these materials cure to form dry, solid lubricant coatings that are bonded to the surface.
