All lubricants aim to reduce friction, heat and unwanted wear between moving solid surfaces that need to be held in direct contact with each other.
Silicone lubricants are among the most popular types of lubricating products, suitable for use in a wide range of engineering and industrial production scenarios. As with all lubricants, silicone greases, sprays and pastes are primarily designed to for application in thin layers between two or more contacting surfaces, such as fast-moving machinery components or tools and workpieces.
Choosing the most appropriate formula of lubrication product for the task, machinery type and environment in question is important in terms of achieving optimal results and longevity of parts. Overall friction and wear on materials and tools can be effectively controlled and greatly reduced when using the type of lubricant for the job, leading to more reliable and efficient operation in the workplace (not to mention far less money spent on maintenance and repair.
