Dow Corning is known for many great things, but in our industry they are most often recognized for offering a line of Molykote® anti-friction coatings. This slippery coating, when applied to a part, transfers to the mating part optimizing metal to metal, plastic to plastic, or metal to plastic friction under loads during working conditions. The automotive industry is just one of many that have benefited from this unique transfer capability of coating solutions.

Dow Coating Descriptions
MolyKote 106 - used where design construction prevents the use of oil or grease or where the risk of soiling is undesirable, MolyKote 106 is a maintenance-free, permanent dry-film lubricant for highly stressed friction combinations with low speeds or oscillating operation.
MolyKote 3400A - a dry film lubricant for metal/metal combinations involving slow to medium-fast movements and medium to heavy loads, MolyKote 3400A exhibits excellent corrosion protection, good solvent resistance and provides a low coefficient of friction.
MolyKote D 3484 - combining an excellent lubricating effect with good corrosion protection, MolyKote D 3484 is a heat-hardening, anti-friction coating with high abrasion resistance, hence lengthening service life of coated components.
MolyKote 7405 - electrically insulating and resistant to oil, grease, solvents, adhesion and abrasion, MolyKote 7405 is a heat-curing dry film lubricant with a low coefficient of friction and good corrosion protection.
MolyKote D-7409 - used for permanent lubrication at high temperatures and also where oils and greases cannot be used, Molykote D-7409 provides outstanding lubrication and wear resistance, coupled with excellent corrosion protection properties and resistance to oil, grease and solvents.
MolyKote D-708 - recommended for the lubrication/corrosion protection of metal/metal and metal/plastic pairings under low to medium loads, MolyKote D-708 is a solid film lubricant designed to provide lubrication properties and corrosion protections all with a high quality surface finish.
