Why choose Molykote lubricants?

A longer life span

The superior performance of Molykote industrial lubricants is due to a proprietary additive package that significantly reduces oxidation rates. Oxidation, which results from exposure of the lubricant to high pressures and temperatures, can cause premature lubricant degradation.
The “technical” base chemistry of Molykote fluids makes them inherently more resistant to oxidation and emulsification than competitive products.

The resistance of our synthetic lubricants to oxidation and other contaminants provides several advantages:

  • Longer service life
  • More efficient lubrication
  • Less formation of waste products in the lubricant.

Our lubricants also meet the extreme temperature requirements of almost any application, with products formulated for extreme cold (-200°C or -328°F) as well as extreme heat (1400°C or 2550°F). And our oils last longer because they maintain extremely low water content throughout their life cycle.


Reduce your maintenance costs

Molykote brand products can help you realize the full value of your maintenance and repair investments. We can provide you with the precise combination of products and/or services you need to reduce your overall maintenance costs, extend the life of your equipment and simplify your purchasing process.
Expect nothing less when you choose Molykote as your preferred supplier for lubrication products and services.
