Premium anti-scuffing and assembly paste
Molyslip® AS60 is a premium performance anti-scuffing and assembly paste containing pure molybdenum disulphide (MoS2).
AS60 is designed for use in situations where a hydrodynamic oil film cannot be tolerated or is impossible to achieve – for example during component assembly, machine start-up and high load/slow speed operations. The high load carrying capacity of the MoS2 solid lubricant (>140,000 psi which is above the yield point of most metals) provides an ultra-low low friction physical barrier between metal surfaces preventing cold-welding or pick-up that can irrevocably damage components.
Molyslip® AS60 is suitable for multiple uses including: assembly of transition and interference fit components, lubrication of sliding mechanisms, plain bearings, pins, bushes and valves and as start-up or run dry protection on gears.
AS60 can under certain circumstances be used as an alternative to traditional metals containing and metal-free anti-seize compounds.

TECHNICAL DATA (TYPICAL VALUES)
|Particle size of molybdenum disulphide||0.5 to 5.0 microns|

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
