Dow Corning Introduces Molykote G-5511 Water Tap Compound, a New Grease with Double-Duty Technology

Dow Corning has introduced Molykote G-5511 Water Tap Compound, a new grease with double-duty technology. This new grease uses advanced double-duty technology to provide performance and manufacturing cost benefits to water tap manufacturers. The product allows manufacturers to use one product where they used to need two. Molykote experts from Dow Corning Corporation developed a technology-driven solution to help meet the special lubrication challenges of operating mechanical equipment in water-rich environments. To prevent wear and corrosion, while also resisting water spray-off, water taps have traditionally needed two different grades of grease to seal and lubricate screw faucets. The first grade would lubricate the ceramic discs in the water tap/faucet cartridge. The second grade would lubricate plastics. Lubricating ceramic discs requires a grease with water homologation, compatibility to ceramics and resistance to water washout. The plastic lubrication can be done with a lower-priced grease with plastics compatibility. Traditional lubricants don't answer both applications, and the use of the wrong lubricant can lead to surface degradation, poor equipment reliability and frequent, unplanned maintenance.
