Silicone based grease for O-rings.
Lubrication between rubber and metal parts in pneumatic systems in aircraft, automotive and general industrial applications.
Molykote® 55 O-ring Grease is a silicone-based material that helps ensure positive lubrication and sealing by slightly swelling rubber O-rings and seals. This product is heat stable and oxidation resistant and is serviceable from approximately -65 to 175°C (-85 to 347°F).
Molykote 55 O-Ring Grease has been shown to swell natural rubber. However, compatibility of the lubricant may vary with the plasticizer content of specific materials (especially elastomers). Small-scale compatibility testing should be conducted prior to the use of this product in any application.
Molykote 55 O-Ring Grease should not
be used with the following materials unless thoroughly tested for your specific application:
- Silicone rubber (SR)
- Polycarbonate (PC)
- Acrylonitrile-butadienestyrene (ABS)
- Liquid oxygen
