MOLYKOTE 111 Compound is a one Component,
silicone oil that is used for damping, sealing, and lubricating
outdoor equipment, pressure systems, electrical equipment,
and used as an anti-stick. It provides low volatility, low vapor
pressure, wide service temperature range, and water resistance.
Excellent water resistance
Compatible with many plastics and elastomers
Low vapor pressure
Meets several global standards for water contact.
Lubrication for control and pressure plug valves,
water softener and faucet valves. Sealant for vacuum
and pressure systems. Sealant for outdoor equipment
(also shipboard) subject to washing and harsh environmental exposure:
meters, electrical service entrance and underground connections.
Damping medium for dash pots in electrical and electronic equipment.
Used as an anti-stick and a sealant for transformer gasket and
equipment enclosures. It prevents gaskets from sticking to metal
and resists weathering and water washout. Rubber and plastic O-rings,
gaskets and seals.
How to Use :
How to apply Molykote 111 Compound 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.
Molykote 111 Compound can then be applied by brushing,
dipping or spraying. Molykote 111 Compound 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.
Molykote 111 Compound is not greatly affected by mineral oils,
vegetable oils or air. It is generally resistant to dilute acids and alkalines
and to most aqueous solutions. Because each application may vary in chemical
composition, pressure, flow velocity, re-lubrication requirements and equipment design,
it is recommended that the silicone compound be tested before adopting for regular use.
Molykote 111 Compound is not to be used with liquid oxygen and should not be used in
applications requiring LOX compatibility.
