The Novagard G624 is a 5.3 oz. tube of dielectric silicone grease compound that provides water resistance, superior corrosion resistance, and electrical insulation for lubricating plastics and elastomeric materials in high-voltage applications. The grease is an amorphous fumed, silica-thickened, polysiloxane-based compound. It has a temperature range of -65 to +400 degrees F (-54 to +204 degrees C), and it meets Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) AS-8660 specification (formerly known as MIL-S-8660C). Dielectric strength is 700 volts per mil for a 50-mil gap. The compound has a translucent paste consistency.
Industrial lubricants can be found in most machinery performing one or more functions, including reducing friction and wear, preventing components from adhering to each other, distributing loads more evenly, dispersing heat away from moving parts, and preventing corrosion. Although many materials are used as lubricants, the most common are oil (also called fluid lubricants) and grease because of their versatility. Oil lubricants contain either a petroleum or synthetic base, the properties of which are modified by the addition of various additives. Grease lubricants, a mixture of oil lubricant and a thickening agent, have a thicker consistency than oil, enabling use wherever liquids cannot be retained and requiring less frequent changes.
Novagard Solutions manufactures industrial adhesives, sealants, and lubricants. The company, founded in 1977, is headquartered in Cleveland, OH.
