Molykote® G-1502FM Synthetic Bearing and Gear GreaseTenaciously TackyAnd that’s exactly what your equipment needsDow Corning understands the challenges that you and your Water spray-off and wear resistanceequipment face. Mechanical equipment operating in a water rich The results of the wear and water spray-off testing are shownenvironment requires special lubrication that’s tough enough in Figure 1. Of the ten greases that were tested, Molykote®to perform effectively – to simultaneously resist water spray-off G-1502FM Synthetic Bearing and Gear Grease bestand prevent wear and corrosion. Improper lubricant selection demonstrated the ability to minimize both grease loss andcan lead to surface degradation, poor equipment reliability and a wear scar. This means that in your high-pressure wash downneed for frequent, unplanned maintenance. Molykote® G-1502FM and spray-off environments, Molykote® G-1502FM greaseSynthetic Bearing and Gear Grease is the technology-driven stays put longer and increases equipment life – stretching yoursolution that helps you reduce costs, extend equipment life and maintenance intervals but not your budget.

This demonstrated that Molykote®After receiving many inquiries from customers who were G-1502FM grease can deliver effective results even at low speeds.experiencing component failure due to grease “spray-off,” andexcessive wear and corrosion, Molykote experts noted a gap Figure 1: Molykote® G-1502FM Grease Minimizes Wear Scar and Grease Lossin existing market offerings. They identified commonly used 0.9greases that claimed to offer “good,” “excellent,” “superior” and Molykote®“outstanding” performance in water rich environments.

Once their formulation was finalized, theproduct was subjected to the same battery of tests to ensure that Based on the testing that was performed, Dow Corning was ableit provided a measurable improvement. to conclude that Molykote® G-1502FM grease best balances two lubrication elements that are key to success in water rich environments: resistance to water spray-off and wear.
