Dow Corning Corp. (Midland, MI) offers a new silver-metallic color for a proven Molykote brand anti-friction coating (AFC) to enhance design options for reducing friction, noise and wear on various automotive components. According to Dow, the new silver-colored Molykote D-709 anti-friction coating offers the same high-performance dry-film lubrication advantages as glossy black Molykote D-708 anti-friction coating, which is proven effective in such applications as brake pad clips, springs and pins. Each Molykote AFC is formulated with polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) solid lubricants, organic resin binder and carrier solvent. Properly applied to pretreated parts with various coating methods, these AFCs provide a clean, dry, slippery film as the lubricating solids fill in surface asperities and smooth roughness. Processing is cleaner with less dust and potential contamination. For more information, visit www.dowcorning.com/auto.
