Molyslip FOODSLIP is a premium-performance, food grade anti-seize compound formulated to protect fasteners from seizure induced by temperature, pressure and corrosion. The high purity base fluid contains micronized high load white solids, including PTFE, to provide excellent lubrication and protection to threads and components operating in areas where there is a possibility of incidental food contact.
Molyslip FOODSLIP is resistant to temperatures up to 340°C and the tenacious film is extremely resistant to water, brine, steam and aqueous cleaners. FOODSLIP provides excellent protection against chemical corrosion (both acid and alkali) and atmospheric oxidation. FOODSLIP is suitable for use on studs, nuts, bolts and other threaded connections on components that need to be dismantled. Use on stainless steel, aluminium, copper, iron, galvanized steel, brass and PVC pipes, tubes and connections.
Molyslip FOODSLIP is InS H1 registered for incidental food contact (registration number 1796283)

When a compound is applied to a threaded fastener that will be tightened to a specific torque setting, the torque setting will require adjustment to allow for the lubricating effect of the compound. Failure to do so can result in incorrect tension in the fastener.
Correct torque settings can be calculated using the tables and charts below and the standard thread equation:
T = KDP
T = Torque (N.m), D = Diameter (m), P = Clamping force (N), K = Nut factor
