Reliable performance while withstanding washout by water and aggressive cooling fluids
Manufacturers use increasingly aggressive cooling fluids in clamping mechanisms, such as lathe spindles, so lubricants must be highly resistant to reduce downtime and minimise relubrication cycles. This is just one of the potential applications for Molykote P-1042, due to its unique characteristics whenever you need to withstand very high loads and the presence of water or chemicals this product is the solution.
MOLYKOTE® P-1042 Adhesive Grease Paste offers:
- High load-carrying capacity
- Outstanding resistance to washout by water and metalmachining emulsions
- Tribo-corrosion avoidance
- Stick-slip prevention
- Excellent protection against galling
- Provides the desired and prolonged level of clamping force
- Reduced downtime and re-lubrication
- Hazard-free no risk phrases
High load-carrying capacity
Outstanding resistance to washout by water and metal-machining emulsions
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.
