MOLYKOTE™ 1122 Chain and Open Gear Grease

MOLYKOTE™ 1122 Chain and Open Gear Grease

 Used for initial lubrication of chains with hollow pins equipped with grease nipples. e.g., high tenter clamp chains in the textile industry and conveyor chains in food sterilizer units.  Also used for gear drives and open gears, sliding bearings operating at low speeds and high temperatures, such as bearings in drying systems and calendaring machines used in various industrial processes. 


 Emergency lubrication

 High pressure resistance

 High wear protection

 Extremely adhesive

 Resistance against water


Clean the contact areas. As is usual with lubricating greases, apply by means of a brush, spatula, grease-gun or automatic lubrication device.


Chains with hollow pins: The hollow pins should be completely packed with grease. Relubricate through grease nipples using a grease gun. Molykote® 1122 Chain and Open Gear Grease is effective to 160°C under these conditions.


Gears: The tooth profiles of new gears should be treated with Molykote® G-n Metal Assembly Paste and Spray and run without load for a short time to generate a basic solid lubricating film. The gears should then be lubricated with Molykote 1122 Chain and Open Gear Grease in accordance with the gear manufacturer's instructions.
