50 ml MOLY oil - MoS2 reinforced siloxane tough duty 3D printer lubricant


MOLY lubricant in silicone carrier oil 50 ml 5wt%

MOLY is short for Molybdenum disulphide, is an exceptionally robust and durable lubricant ideal for high load and high temperature applications and stable up to 350 degrees centigrade even in oxidising environments. Moly is also works well with plastics, increasing their strength and is used in self lubricating engineering plastics. MOLY will keep on working even after other lubricants have dried out - protecting parts from wear.

Moly oil is especially good for POM. Polyoxymethylene also known by the trade names Acetal and Delrin is a widely used engineering plastic and is used on the wheels of many 3D printers. Most POM, although low friction, is not truly self lubricating and even self lubricating types benefit hugely form additional lubrication while running in. Siloxane silicone oil, and molybdenum are both very efficient lubricants for POM and here you get both, the low viscosity carrier oil and the lasting durable MOLY, both of which absorb into the matrix of POM. This helps stop the wear and white powdery build up (worn POM) on the printer wheels. 

Moly has superlubricity - an unusual and useful property that means that its shear strength actually increases as the coefficient of friction increases - it gets more slippy the worse the conditions. With a co-efficient of friction of 0.05 MOLY can cope with harsher conditions and higher temperatures. Please note as MOLY is very dense it falls out of suspension - shake the bottle to make sure MOLY is dispersed through the silicone carrier oil.
