Hydraulic Component with Dow Corning MolyKote Coating
Dow Corning Protective MolyKote Coatings | The DECC Company

Dow Corning has an established history of excellence and is known for many remarkable things. However, in our industry, Dow Corning is most often recognized for offering a complete line of Molykote® anti-friction coatings. These slippery coatings, while also corrosion resistant, can transfer to mating parts and create two lubricious surfaces. Dow’s anti-friction coatings help reduce metal to metal, plastic to plastic, or metal to plastic friction under direct loads during working conditions. The automotive industry is just one of many that have benefited from the unique transfer capability of Dow’s anti-friction and corrosion resistant coatings.

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 the 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.


An adhesive primer, PR-1205 enhances bonding/adhesion of RTV and heat cure silicones to many metals, ceramics, and plastics.
