Overhead Consoles Manufacturing
Automotive manufacturers require durable solutions for overhead consoles within vehicles.
Common consumer complaints regarding overhead consoles include excessive noise, rough operation, and frequent breakage. These issues can bring down consumer satisfaction, increase the requirement for repairs and maintenance, and ultimately increase costs and waste for manufacturers and consumers.
Leading industrial adhesives and lubricants allow manufacturers of overhead consoles to utilise the top industrial lubricants when constructing and fitting them into vehicles. This will give a competitive advantage over other manufacturers, due to improvements in driver experience, vehicle quality and sustainability through longer-lasting vehicle components.
Molykote Greases for Overhead Consoles
Lubrication plays a key role in the smooth operation of overhead consoles within automotive vehicles. Through effective lubrication of overhead console components, the following benefits can be achieved:
- Smooth, noiseless operation
- Resistance to humidity and water
- Corrosion and rust protection
- Suitability for repeated disassembly
- Reduced wear and friction
- Increased lifespan of components
Molykote G-1067 is a synthetic grease designed for automotive components that has successfully been used for vehicle overhead consoles. It can be used on ABS, polycarbonate and many common metals, plastic and elastomeric substrates; making it a viable option when working with the most difficult materials.
Molykote G-1067 is operable within a wide temperature range of -40 to 150°C. By using this grease, manufacturers can ensure improved noise reduction, thermal stability, excellent low bleeding performance and compatibility with plastics. Additionally, it can be easily applied using a clean brush, putty knife or automatic dispensing equipment.
