MOLYKOTE® Compound Eases Installation of Electrical Cables

Case Study


Downhole electrical connections and cables

Operational parameters (LETS)

  • Load: Light
  • Environment: Chemical attack; high pressure
  • Temperature: -34 to 204°C
  • Speed: Low
  • Process description: Product is being used to lubricate internal components to make installation easier, as well as to fill voids and gaps in connectors to increase electrical integrity


The previously used product did not withstand the temperature range and was difficult to work with. High levels of friction on wires and cables made them difficult to install.


MOLYKOTE® 4 Electrical Insulating Compound enhanced ease of installation by as much as 20%. Additionally, the compound ensures connectors are electrically sound.
