DuPont Launches New NLGI-Certified MOLYKOTE® Grease
MOLYKOTE® Multilub Synthetic High Performance Grease carries NLGI High-Performance Multiuse (HPM) Grease Certification for easy selection
WILMINGTON, Del., May 24, 2022 – DuPont (NYSE:DD) today announced the launch of new MOLYKOTE® Multilub Synthetic High Performance Grease. The multipurpose grease, certified with National Lubricating Grease Institute’s (NLGI) HPM + LT (High-Performance Multiuse Grease with enhanced low-temperature performance) designation, is appropriate for a broad range of applications, such as gears or slides in centrifuge pumps, blend tank agitators, spindles, gearboxes, bushings, actuators, springs and more.
As a synthetic, MOLYKOTE® Multilub Synthetic High Performance Grease offers improved performance and durability than mineral-oil-based greases. It also can be used at temperatures as low as -58°F (-50°C), allowing additional application flexibility.
Introduced in late 2020, the NLGI HPM Grease Program provides licensing and product certification for greases used in various lubricating applications. The HPM and associated specifications were developed by NLGI in conjunction with grease users and specifiers, including original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) interviewed during the specification-setting process. According to NLGI, the specification’s limits are “challenging yet achievable” to set a new performance standard that grease users and specifiers can utilize in selecting greases for their applications.
“It is important to note this certification was developed by NLGI industry experts and end-users familiar with what it really means for a grease to be both high-performance and multipurpose,” said MOLYKOTE® global marketing manager Marjorie Dwane. “We are pleased to be able to offer HPM-certified MOLYKOTE® Multilub Synthetic High Performance Grease. The certification allows our customers to save time and money when qualifying and using the lubricant, assures quality, simplifies maintenance, and streamlines inventory.”
