Dow Corning Corp. has developed a brake grease that’s designed to reduce fretting corrosion and excessive caliper guide and mounting pin wear.

Dow Corning Corp. has developed a brake grease that’s designed to reduce fretting corrosion and excessive caliper guide and mounting pin wear. Molykote G-3407 grease is a polyalkylene glycol (PAG) and lithium complex thickener. It operates at a wider temperature range (-40 to 200º C) and features better corrosion resistance, better fretting and wear protection, and enhanced elastomeric compatibility (150º C) compared to standard silicone greases and even Dow Corning’s previous PAG-based greases.
