How to “grease” a screw, or a screwed assembly

Why use an Molykote™ anti-seize paste ?

DuPont anti-seize pastes Molykote™ contain a high content of solid lubricants to protect mechanical components against wear, corrosion ALL CONTACT LUBRICANTS, grazing, seizure or deterioration. They protect the assembly against corrosion, against fading and ensure a constant coefficient of friction.

Solid lubricants remain in place even under high temperatures and high loads, ensuring a long-lasting lubricating action. For a threaded joint to perform optimally, the anti-seize paste must be chosen carefully according to the application conditions.

The use of an anti-seize paste is therefore one of the best ways to reduce and control friction in threaded assemblies to ensure long-term performance and facilitate disassembly and reassembly. The selection of the appropriate anti-seize paste depends on the expected loads, environment, temperature and speed of the application.

The table below provides a general description of the most suitable anti-seize pastes for screwed assemblies according to DuPont Molykote™.

Choose from: Anti-friction coatings: permanent, adherent “lubricating paints” that are excellent for rail applications, fasteners, and areas that are open to touch or near clothing. Liquid lubricants, especially for control cables. Synthetic greases (such as poly-alphaolefin compounds), for electrical applications and plastic-to-metal lubrication.
