Molykote Microsize Powder can be used:

as a dry burnished (rubbed-on) lubricating film for metallic contacts
as a solid lubricant additive for self-lubricating plastics and sinter metal parts
as a solid lubricant additive in metalworking compounds
as run-in aid, in press-fittings, in heavy loads and slow speeds applications and also in extreme environments (for example in dusty atmospheres or extremes of temperatures)
