Threaded connections offer convenient disassembly, repeated use of a fastener and accurate reassembly. Without proper lubrication, significant equipment challenges – such as inconsistent bolt tension due to inconsistent coefficient of friction, stick-slip, stress-corrosion cracking, fretting, galling and seizing – and reliability concerns can result.
Automobile fasteners and bolting require tight torque ranges with consistent and repeatable friction performance that can only be provided through careful selection of the proper specialty lubricant.
A proper lubricant should be selected based on application, materials, and temperature and environmental conditions. With MOLYKOTE® Specialty Lubricants, you can find the best lubricant for your threaded connection application.
