Suitable for bolted joints that are subjected to high temperatures up to 650°C (1,202°F) and to corrosive effects – and that after assembling and the initial operation, have to be retightened or disconnected. In order to ensure constant pre-stressing forces, uniform and steady coefficients of friction of the lubricant are necessary. Used successfully for cylinder head bolts, nozzle head screws of plastic injection molding machines, bolted joints in the chemical industry, and also for the tension rings of centrifuges
MOLYKOTE® 1000 Paste is a lead- and nickel-free anti-seize paste used to reduce wear and optimize friction of threaded fasteners, or other metal-to-metal joints, enabling nondestructive dismantling, even after long exposure to high temperatures. It offers good corrosion protection, under high loads, over a wide temperature range.
If possible, clean the thread and the bolt with a wire brush. Spread an adequate amount of the paste on the thread, right up to its root to obtain a good seal. In order not to alter the properties, the paste must not be mixed with grease or oils. To enable this product to be applied more quickly and cleanly to larger areas, it is advisable to use the spray can.
When stored at or below 20°C (68°F) in the original unopened containers, MOLYKOTE® 1000 Paste has a usable life of 60 months from the date of production
