Extend Equipment Life

Reduce premature failure and
increase equipment integrity
with proven, effective solutions.


Extend equipment life with the right assembly and maintenance solutions

The longer your equipment works to your satisfaction, the more return it delivers to the bottom line. Specified OEM assembly and maintenance materials may not deliver the best performance or meet your exact requirements. And, some materials may not be able to handle harsh environments and demanding operating schedules. We work to help you improve the mean time between equipment failures.

High-performance Molykote® lubricants and Dow Corning® bonding and sealing solutions can provide you with value-added remedies to reduce premature failure and increase equipment integrity. They can help you reduce downtime, extend equipment life, and increase returns on equipment assets. To gain added equipment durability, you can rely on these proven, effective solutions:

Protect assets with effective maintenance

Some examples of our solutions to extend equipment life include:

  • In the mining industry, Molykote® silicone compound is used to lubricate and seal knife valves, and Molykote® anti-seize pastes protect the life of hard-working rock-drilling equipment.
  • For food and beverage machinery, Dow Corning® sealants form watertight gaskets, while Molykote® greases and pastes resist water washout and spray off to protect critical bearings and gears.
  • In automotive manufacturing, Molykote® greases withstand extreme heat to keep paint-line conveyor bearings from failing and disrupting production.
