MOLYKOTE® P-1042 Adhesive Grease Paste delivers reliable performance in harsh high-heat and high-humidity environments


MIDLAND, MI., March 31, 2021 – DuPont (NYSE: DD) has introduced a MOLYKOTE® brand adhesive grease paste specially formulated for sliding surfaces exposed to high-pressure loadings and subjected to the influence of metal-machining emulsions.

Globally available MOLYKOTE® P-1042 Adhesive Grease Paste initially was developed for industrial lathe chucks, which require constant clamping force in harsh environments. The lubricant balances the desired clamping force with improved washout resistance against modern cooling fluids, which can lead to reduced downtime and fewer relubrication cycles. The product does not exhibit any hardening issues during service.

The adhesive grease paste can be used in metal-to-metal applications in extreme environments with high heat and humidity. In stressed applications – such as open gear lubrication, lubrication for hydraulic breakers on heavy-duty equipment and fifth wheel hitch lubrication for semi-trailers – MOLYKOTE® P-1042 Adhesive Grease Paste extends durability and can lengthen time between required scheduled maintenance, increasing productivity and saving both time and money.

With a service temperature range of -25°C to 120°C as a paste and more than 500°C as a solid lubricant, MOLYKOTE® P-1042 Adhesive Grease Paste is optimized for high-temperature environments. It also offers high load-carrying capability, excellent adhesion to metallic surfaces and high resistance to water and steam washout.

“We understand that manufacturers are working in demanding environments, which is why our MOLYKOTE® Specialty Lubricants are application-matched and formulated for distinct loads, environments, temperature ranges and speeds,” said Marjorie Dwane, global market manager for the MOLYKOTE® brand. “Our MOLYKOTE® P-1042 Adhesive Grease Paste has proven that it’s a versatile solution for harsh metal-to-metal applications.”
