  • Excellent water resistance
  • Compatible with many plastics and elastomers
  • Low vapor pressure
  • Low volatility
  • Meets several global standards for water contact
  • Provides a noncuring moisture barrier
  • Wide service-temperature range (-40 to 200°C)
  • Excellent water resistance
  • Compatible with many plastics and elastomers
  • Low vapor pressure; low volatility; meets several global standards for water contact

Applications & Uses

Use Recommendations
  • Lubrication for control and pressure plug valves, water softener and faucet valves.
  • Sealant for vacuum and pressure systems.
  • Sealant for outdoor equipment (also shipboard) subject to washing and harsh environmental exposure: meters, electrical service entrance and underground connections.
  • Damping medium for dash pots in electrical and electronic equipment.
  • Used as an anti-stick and a sealant for transformer gasket and equipment enclosures. It prevents gaskets from sticking to metal and resists weathering and water washout.
  • Rubber and plastic O-rings, gaskets and seals.
  • Sealant for outdoor equipment (also shipboard) subject to washing and harsh environmental exposure
  • Lubricant for use on valves and most elastomer O-rings, gaskets and Seals
How to Use

How to apply

MOLYKOTE® 111 Compound can be applied by hand, specially designed automated equipment brushing or wiping. Certain designs of grease guns may seize up; test prior to use.

A thinner consistency can be achieved by dispersing in solvents such as xylene, mineral spirits and methyl ethyl ketone. MOLYKOTE® 111 Compound can then be applied by brushing, dipping or spraying.

MOLYKOTE® 111 Compound should not be applied to any surface which will be painted or finished. Such coatings may not adhere to the silicone-treated surface. If contaminated by a silicone coating, parts can be wiped or washed with solvent, washed with detergent, or immersed in an alcoholic potassium hydroxide solution and then rinsed in clear water before painting.

Chemical resistance

MOLYKOTE® 111 Compound is not greatly affected by mineral oils, vegetable oils or air. It is generally resistant to dilute acids and alkalines and to most aqueous solutions.

Because each application may vary in chemical composition, pressure, flow velocity, re-lubrication requirements and equipment design, it is recommended that the silicone compound be tested before adopting for regular use

MOLYKOTE® 111 Compound is not to be used with liquid oxygen and should not be used in applications requiring LOX compatibility.
