Application Instructions:

  • Molykote 111 Lubricant can be applied by hand, specially designed automated equipment, brushing or wiping. Certain designs of grease guns may seize up; test prior to use.
  • A thinner consistency can be achieved by dispersing in solvents such as xylene, mineral spirits and Methyl Ethyl Ketone (2-Butanone). Dow 111 Silicone Lubricant can then be applied by brushing, dipping or spraying.
  • Dow 111 Lubricant should not be applied to any surface which will be painted or finished. Such coatings may not adhere to the silicone-treated surface. If contaminated by a silicone coating, parts can be wiped or washed with solvent, washed with detergent, or immersed in an alcoholic potassium hydroxide solution and then rinsed in clear water before painting.

This silicone grease is very prevalent as a general use lubricate and is low cost in relation to many of the alternatives. 111 Compound is commonly used for lubricating and preserving rubber parts as well as to grease artificial and silicone rubber used in a high-temperature application.
