What it is
MOLYSLIP AS 40 is a pre-assembly lubricating compound formulated to prevent scuffing and scoring of mechanical components at start up and to prevent galling and corrosion. It has a molybdenum disulfide content of over 40%, (resulting in exceptional load carrying capacity, in excess of 140,000 psi.) in a gelled lubricating oil with a highly effective rust and corrosion inhibitor.
Where to use it
- Use AS 40 to: Pretreat new or reconditioned plain bearings, gears, piston rings, cams and valve stems.
- Prevent seizure of nuts and bolts, valves and cocks, screw threads, press fittings and turbine studs.
- Lubricate small mechanisms which can't be lubricated after assembly
Note: NOT recommended for ball bearings
