MOLYKOTE® P-1042 Adhesive Grease Paste

High load-carrying capability with greater washout resistance for enhanced productivity. An outstanding resistance to washout by water and metal-machining emulsions.

MOLYKOTE® P-1042 Adhesive Grease Paste was initially developed for industrial lathe chucks, which require constant clamping force in harsh environments.

Because as manufacturers use more aggressive cooling fluids in metal machinery and clamping mechanisms – such as lathe chucks – highly washout-resistant lubricants with reliable tribological performance are a requirement to reduce downtime and minimize relubrication cycles. MOLYKOTE® P-1042 Adhesive Grease Paste is a light-colored grease-paste fortified with solid lubricants, designed for sliding surfaces exposed to high-pressure loadings and subjected to the influence of water or metal-machining emulsions. With a patented formula specifically designed to properly lubricate clamping mechanisms, MOLYKOTE® P-1042 Paste enables manufacturers to deliver consistent clamping force on lathe chucks. Additionally, MOLYKOTE® P-1042 Paste does not experience hardening issues during service.

 

A direct response to market needs and trends

Extended durability and maintenance schedules deliver productivity. Lubricants must retain their lubricating performance under greater production and environmental stresses.

MOLYKOTE® P-1042 Adhesive Grease Paste:

  • Has a patented formula specifically designed to:
    • Provide superior high load-carrying capability
    • Properly lubricate clamping mechanisms
  • Exhibits superior tackiness on metal and metallic surfaces for longer-term performance
  • Offers resistance to washout by water and steam – designed to tolerate humid environments while under high temperatures
  • Does not experience hardening issues during service

Balanced for clamping tools

The use of more aggressive cooling fluids in metal machinery requires the use of lubricants that are highly resistant to those fluids while retaining tribological performance.

MOLYKOTE® P-1042 Adhesive Grease Paste:

  • Has a patented formula specifically designed to properly lubricate clamping mechanisms such as lathe chucks
  • Offers resistance to washout by water and by modern cooling fluids applied on the tool, providing a constant level of desired clamping force
  • Enables manufacturers of lathe chucks to supply a clamping unit with constant performance in terms of desired clamping force, reduced downtime and lower relubrication cycles
  • Does not experience hardening issues during service
