Molykote® 55 O-Ring Grease is a high-performance lubricating grease primarily designed to create dynamic lubrication between rubber and metal parts. This phenyl-methyl silicone-based grease operates by releasing the silicone lubricating fluid from the lithium soap thickening agent to provide lubrication in applications where the use of oil is not practical. The grease also slightly swells o-rings creating a tighter seal.
Manufactured by Dow Corning, Molykote 55 O-ring grease is off-white in colour and boasts the ability to be utilized in applications within a wide temperature range of -65°C to +177°C. The grease also exhibits good resistance to oxidization and offers good protection against corrosion. These properties have seen this high-performance grease utilized in a range of sealing applications such as in pneumatic systems, aircraft, automotive and other general industrial applications.
