Graphite-based anti-seize compound
Molyslip GRAPHSLIP is a premium-performance, graphited anti-seize compound formulated to protect fasteners from seizure induced by extremes of temperature, pressure and corrosion. The semi-synthetic base fluid contains a unique combination of micronized, non-metallic solids and high purity graphite to provide excellent lubrication and protection to threads and components.
Molyslip GRAPHSLIP is resistant to temperatures up to 1100°C due to the ultra-high melt point solids that remain stable where traditional filler metals would fail. The non-metallic nature also means that the risk of galvanic corrosion due to the presence of dissimilar metals is eliminated. GRAPHSLIP is suitable for use on brake assemblies, all studs, nuts, bolts and other threaded connections, including exhaust systems and manifolds.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
• Ensures consistent friction between threads
• Protects against galling and seizure
• Excellent protection against rust and corrosion
• Eases assembly and dismantling of components
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Molyslip GRAPHSLIP should be used as supplied. Ensure surfaces to be treated are clean and dry – free from oil, grease or dirt contamination. Apply a thin even coating by rubbing onto the surface with a lint free cloth.

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
