Extreme-pressure, dry film lubricant provides exceptional release and lubricating properties
Molykote® 557 Silicone Dry Film Lubricant is:
An extreme-pressure lubricant with exceptional release properties for cutting and forming metals, and with lubricating properties for heavily loaded tracks, cams, slides, etc.
Colorless in thin films
Nonstaining to paper or fabrics
The solvent evaporates after application, leaving a nearly transparent, thin film. This lubricant film begins to melt at 32°C (90°F) and adheres tenaciously to most surfaces, whether in a solid or fluid state.
APPLICATIONS Molykote® 557 Silicone Dry Film Lubricant can be used:
In steel production where it can increase slitter-blade life, resulting in clean, square edges
In aluminum production where it can lengthen the life of tools and dies, improve surface finish, lubricate sliding surfaces and surfaces during extruding, deep drawing or spinning
In machine shops where it can improve surface finishes; extend the life of cutting tools, taps, dies, drills, slitters, and forming tools; reduce wear and reduce stick-slip or metal seizure on bearings, slides, cams adjusting screws, guides and ways
For textile, paper and woodworking industries where it can reduce wear and friction and reduce product staining from spinning frames, knives, scissors, punches, chain, conveyors or material-handling equipment
For rubber and plastic industries where it can reduce sticking, pickup or product contamination from handling equipment, knives, conveyors or sliding surfaces
