  • Best Practices for Dupont Molykote 3402-C LF Anti-Friction Coating

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      Carefully clean and degrease surfaces to be coated with MOLYKOTE 3402-C LF Anti-Friction Coating.

      Recommended pretreatments: blasting or phosphating. Both pretreatments increase the adhesion and service life of MOLYKOTE 3402-C LF Anti-Friction Coating.

    2. Application

      Stir MOLYKOTE® 3402-C LF Anti-Friction Coating thoroughly before and during use, apply by spraying, dipping, centrifuging or brushing. Surfaces should be coated as evenly as possible. Recommended dry-film thickness: 5 to 20 µm.

    3. Curing

      Coatings of Molykote 3402-C Anti- Friction Coating cure at normal room temperatures (20°C/68°F). The film dries to the touch in 10 minutes and cures in 2 hours. Accelerated heat cures can also be used. At 50°C (122°F), the coating cures in 10 minutes.
