Specialty Lubricants

Improve driving comfort, performance, safety and reliability. Molykote® brand Smart Lubrication™ solutions can help.

Smart Lubrication™ for automotive applications

Meet your automotive lubrication challenges

With a wide range of high-performance Molykote specialty lubricants from Dow Corning, you can meet your auto lubrication requirements. Molykote brand Smart Lubrication ™ can be the answer to help prevent component failures, reduce costly warranty repairs and improve customer satisfaction. It can also help you develop solutions to increase:

  • Driving comfort by reducing noise, vibration and harshness (NVH)
  • Performance by providing durable, long-term lubrication
  • Safety by keeping inaccessible components working as designed
  • Reliability by withstanding extreme temperatures and harsh operating conditions

Select from a full range of Smart Lubrication choices:

  • Greases are designed for dynamic lubrication on all types of automotive materials. They have excellent resistance to heat and cold, and contain solid lubricants to provide effective lubrication under extreme loads. High performance fluorinated greases provide resistance to degradation from fuels and oils.
  • Compounds are grease-like silicone lubricants that resist oxidation and maintain their properties over a wide temperature range. They are ideal as non-curing sealants or as release agents between metal and elastomers.
  • Pastes have high concentrations of solid lubricants and are especially valued as initial run-in and high-load lubricants.
  • Lubricating Solids are primarily used as additives for brake pads or lining formulations to improve wear resistance and control friction.
  • Anti-Friction Coatings are paint-like lubricants that contain a solid lubricant and binder dispersed in solvent carrier. The coating forms a dry lubricating film to help prevent corrosion. Anti-friction coatings are ideal for dusty environments or for inaccessible parts that need long-term lubrication. See the Anti-Friction Coatings Tutorial for appropriate application methods.
