MOLYKOTE Powders

Microsize

View pdf data-sheet

Type Highly refined and purified solid lubricant powders.
Typical applications Coating of metallic friction contacts which cannot be lubricated sufficiently with oil or grease due to high loads, low speed or unfavourable environmental influences.
For finely finished surfaces and highly alloyed steels with dense structure composition MOLYKOTE Microsize powder is the preferred product.
Incorporation as a friction reducing additive in plastics, elastomers and sintered metals.
Properties
  • Reduction of friction and wear
  • Resistant against oxidation
