Friction is your aircraft’s worse enemy, but greasy, messy lubricants are no fun to use. Fortunately, there’s Miller-Stephenson Dry Lubricant from SkyGeek. The innovative formula uses the magic of DuPont's Teflon chemistry to create a lubricant that’s easy to use and virtually mess-free. It protects just as well as a traditional lubricant and helps cut down on friction and premature wear. The formula includes suspensions of low molecular weight polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) fluoropolymers along with white, waxy particles of PTFE, resulting in a substance that has the slickness of Teflon, but that is much easier to apply. Miller-Stephenson PTFE Dry Lubricant is sold in a 14-ounce aerosol can for ease of application. It boasts outstanding lubricity and a low coefficient of friction, making it a great choice for use throughout your aircraft. PTFE Dry Lubricant is the perfect choice for use as a dry film lubricant and as a release agent in molding operations.
Miller Stephenson MS-122AD Dry Lubricant also makes an excellent and economical universal release agent. It is highly effective when applied to rubber molds and ensures a clean, effortless release with every use. For that reason, it's a popular choice in manufacturing applications. To use the Dry Lubricant as a PTFE release agent, simply spray on a uniform coating and pour your compound into the mold as usual. The lubricant coats the surface of the mold and prevents materials from sticking for a quick, complete release. Miller-Stephenson Dry Lubricant is one of the best dry lubricants on the market and can be used in a variety of ways both on and off your aircraft. It’s safe for use on all surfaces, especially where there is metal to metal contact. It is sold in a 14-ounce aerosol spray can and is available with a manufacturer’s certification if needed.
Use MS-122AD for application to molds up to 212°F (100°C). For preheated molds above 212°F (100°C), use water-based MS-136W or MS-145W.
MS-122AD can be used as a release agent to mold plastics, rubbers, resins, acrylics, epoxies, urethanes, nylons, phenolics, polycarbonates, polystyrene, and elastomers. Air dried coating typically provide 8 to 10 releases between applications. When the coating is fused 25 or more releases are typical. The transfer of PTFE to molded parts is negligible, minimizing interference with post finishing operations.
