1 Product Information Specialty Lubricants molykote G-n Metal Assembly Paste and molykote G-n Metal Assembly spray FEATURES Extreme-pressure lubricant for Assembly , press fitting, threaded Excellent protection against connections, running-in and maintenance fretting wear and corrosion Extends service life APPLICATIONS. Low friction molykote G-n Metal Assembly Paste lubricates surfaces subjected to Lubricate beyond the yield point of extreme pressures. Specific applications include: most metals in boundary Running-in lubricant for new or rebuilt equipment, such as gears, splines, applications, reducing wear and journal bearings, cams and ways helping to prevent seizing, galling Metalworking helps prevent galling, welding and Metal pickup on tools and and excessive friction dies in machining, stamping, and drawing operations, tube bending, thread Aid run-in and reduce frictional rolling, cold heading.
2 Swaging and forging force and surface damage Assembly lubricant reduces torque in tightening threaded fasteners and Low coefficient of friction allows tension variation from bolt to bolt; eases disassembly and reduces chance of for effective conversion of damage torquing force into holding force; Helps prevent fretting wear and corrosion, and cold welding of bearing shafts, reduces the force required for bushings and splines disassembly of threaded fasteners Press-fitting lubricant allows press fitting without chatter or stick-slip in most cases.
3 Reduces the force required for interference fitting and minimizes COMPOSITION distortion molykote G-n Metal Assembly spray is primarily designed as a running-in Solid lubricants in mineral oil lubricant for plain bearings, splines, gears, cams and ways, and because of its low (with non-chlorofluorohydrocarbon coefficient of friction, as a lubricant for movable screws, threaded spindles and propellant in aerosol) lead screws. It can also be used wherever protection against friction and high load conditions is needed, where burnishing is impractical, or where a Paste in aerosol form is desired.
4 It is suitable for airframe and aircraft engine applications. TYPICAL PROPERTIES. Specification Writers: These values are not intended for use in preparing specifications.
