  • Best Practices for Dow G-n Metal Assembly Paste

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Application

      Dow Corning G-n Metal Assembly Paste can be applied in a thin film to clean surfaces by either of the following methods: Burnishing – Rub on with a clean, lint-free cloth.

      Brushing – Brush on, preferably using a brush with short, stiff bristles. Molykote® G-n Metal Assembly Paste lubricates surfaces subjected to extreme pressures. Specific applications include: Running-in lubricant – for new or rebuilt equipment, such as gears, splines, journal bearings, cams and ways

      Metalworking – helps prevent galling, welding and metal pickup on tools and dies in machining, stamping, and drawing operations, tube bending, thread rolling, cold heading, swaging and forging

      Assembly lubricant – reduces torque in tightening threaded fasteners and tension variation from bolt to bolt

      eases disassembly and reduces chance of damage

      Helps prevent fretting wear and corrosion, and cold welding of bearing shafts, bushings and splines

      Press-fitting lubricant – allows press fitting without chatter or stick-slip in most cases

      reduces the force required for interference fitting and minimizes distortion
