Dow Corning offers Molykote brake system lubricant
Jan 1, 2005 12:00 PM
Dow Corning Corp has announced a new lineup of Molykote high-performance lubricants for automotive brake system applications. Molykote lubricants are designed to work under extremes of load, speed, and temperature, as well as in exposure to water and dust. They also offer good compatibility with elastomers commonly used in automotive brake systems, such as EPDM, neoprene, and others.
Brake components and the Molykote systems are:
Molykote G-807 silicone compound is a stiff, non-melting compound for rubber boots that reduces friction and provides good corrosion and water resistance.
Molykote G-407 grease minimizes fretting corrosion of the guide pins in floating caliper designs and is compatible with rubber dust boots that protect these pins.
Molykote M-77 extreme-pressure lubricating paste reduces noise and squeak at braking.
Molykote AS-880N grease is designed for preventing squeak of brake shims to reducing vibration from disc pads.
Drum brakes: Molykote 7439-plus improves lubricity, anti-corrosion and water resistance for links and adjuster screws.
Brake booster: Molykote 822M and PG-54 greases offer good lubricity between rubber and plastics at low and high temperatures, keeps better sealing, and help prolong the life of critical components.
Antilock systems: Molykote BG 20 high-performance grease is suitable for lubrication of needle bearings in antilock systems under middle and high loadings, high speeds, and temperatures.
Parking cables: Molykote 33 grease performs in a wide temperature range (-70° to +180° C), prevents corrosion, and provides good water resistance and anti-oxidation properties.
Air compressor for commercial vehicles: Molykote FS 3452 especially suitable for long-term lubrication, because of extremely low oxidization and evaporation tendency.
Brake pads: Dow Corning also offers Lubolid friction control additives, designed for use in brake pads, clutch lining, linings for drum brakes on personal or commercial vehicles; including extreme heavy-duty applications such as railroading applications.
