  • Suitable for threaded connections and press-fit production of all types of machine elements
  • Running-in lubricant for new machines and gears
Wind Energy Industry Applications

Tighten all assembly bolts to required tension with correct torque:

Thread roughness creates uneven friction and incorrect bolt tightening during installation. Lubricate threads with Molykote brand pastes to achieve a low and consistent coefficient of friction, thus helping to ensure proper tightening and tension on all wind turbine assembly bolts.

Protect threaded connections for longer service life:

Bolts and fasteners on equipment joints must stay invulnerable in heat, cold, pollution, rain, snow and even salt fog. Apply Molykote brand pastes to help provide threaded bolts with increased, long-lasting protection from corrosion and seizure.

Help to allow easier disassembly of threaded connections:

Corrosion, adhesion and seizure make disassembly difficult after long outdoor service. Use Molykote brand pastes for bolt lubrication, protection from fretting corrosion and easy disassembly without damage.

Lubrication Solutions

The use of carefully selected lubricants can help circumvent some of the common failure mechanisms associated with threaded connections. Some key functions of proper lubrication are:

• Providing a consistent coefficient of friction (μ)
• On mating surfaces, this enables designers and applicators to minimize the complexity of obtaining proper connector preload forces and torque specifications
• Limits the effects of temperature and load variations, reducing fatigue failure rates
• Forming barriers between substrates and oxygen gas layer
• Prevents undesirable scale formation on thread surfaces
• Providing protective layers to mating surfaces
• Reduces the effects of oxide layer depletion, reducing the occurrence of fretting, galling, seizing and shearing
• Decreases exposure to corrosive, hydrogen-rich and low-melting metal environments,
reducing stress corrosion cracking as well as hydrogen and solder embrittlement.

How to Use
How to apply

Clean the sliding surfaces or contact areas, then apply paste with a brush,cloth, synthetic sponge or window leather. Do not use in excess as with grease lubrication. Vigorous rubbing into metal surface will improve adhesion. Do not mix with greases or oils.

Use Limitations
