  • Best Practices for Dow 7 Release Compound

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      For best results, clean and dry surfaces before application.

    2. Application

      Dow Corning 7 Release Compound can be applied by hand, by specially designed automated equipment, or by brushing or wiping. When using some high pressure dispensing equipment, separation and compaction can occur. Certain designs of grease guns may seize with silicone compound

      test prior to using.

    3. Testing

      Because each application may vary in chemical composition, pressure, flow velocity, relubrication requirements and equipment design, the silicone compound should be tested before adopting for regular use.
