Slickote M1 Air Dry Solid Film Lubricant

Apply in accordance with Mil-PRF-46147C Ty1 & 2 /Lead Free /Low VOC

Product Description

Slickote M1 is an air cured, low voc resin bonded solid film lubricant coating which meets the requirements of  Mil-PRF-46147C Ty 1 and 2.

Intended Use

To reduce wear and prevent galling, corrosion and seizure of metals.

Where conventional lubricants are difficult to apply or retain, or where other lubricants may be easily contaminated with dirt and dust.

For sliding motion applications such as plain and spherical bearings, flap tracks, hinges, threads and cam surfaces.

Where temperature ranges are from  -67 deg C to 93 deg C (-88 deg F to 200 deg F)

When mechanisms are operated at infrequent intervals or are lubricated for life.

Where long term corrosion protection is required under static conditions.

Where extremely heavy loaded lubrication is required including initial start up of heavy loaded mechanisms designed for fluid lubrication.

As a touch up to worn surfaces previously coated with solid film lubrication

Application Procedure

Metal Preparation: All surfaces must be thoroughly cleaned, degreased, free of rust, oxides or other surface impurities. Recommended pretreatments:

Aluminum Anodize and seal iaw Mil-A-8625, type II, Class 1 (non-dyed).
