Dow Corning Corporation Key Developments

Dow Corning Introduces New Molykote Brand Noise-Damping Grease

Dow Corning Corporation has introduced a new Molykote brand noise-damping grease. Molykote G-1074 Grease (PDF), which has the ability to address noise-control challenges across a range of automotive systems and applications - including chassis and brake, exterior, and interior - will make its public debut at the 34th Annual SAE Brake Colloquium & Exhibition in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA, Sept. 25 through 28. Molykote G-1074 Grease is a PAO-based grease suitable for lubricating common metal, plastic and elastomeric substrates. Fortified with additives that enable it to perform under high loads, it also has excellent noise-damping properties and a broad operating-temperature range (-40 to 150 C). In testing, Molykote G-1074 Grease outperformed competitive greases in noise reduction, friction reduction, and performance under extreme pressure at high frequency.

Dow Corning Launches New Silver-Metallic Color for Molykote Brand AFC

Dow Corning Corporation has announced the launch of a new silver-metallic color for Molykote brand anti-friction coating, or AFC to enhance design options for reducing friction, noise and wear on various automotive components. 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. With an appealing silvery metallic finish, Molykote D-709 Anti-Friction Coating can add aesthetically pleasing lubrication for more-visible design components, such as door sliding or locking mechanisms and seating system parts. Both Molykote D-708 Anti-Friction Coating and Molykote D-709 Anti-Friction Coating can provide a low coefficient of friction on metal parts to reduce noise and wear between metal-to-metal and metal-to-plastic surfaces. They can contribute to lightweighting for added efficiency by eliminating the need for heavier greases and allowing the use of more plastics. Dry-film AFC technology is helping Dow Corning underscore how Smart Science Drives Mobility Innovation.
