What is Graphogen?
Graphogen Assembly Compound is a colloidal graphite paste in oil and gives protection and peace of mind when running in all types of precision built machinery, particularly engine assemblies.
Due to the high content of graphite in the compound, the paste is black in colour. The very low co-efficient of friction far outweighs the appearance.
Graphogen provides an excellent safeguard against the potential rubbing or scuffing of metal components and is the first line in protection until the oil pressure is obtained.
What are the Benefits of Graphogen?
Graphogen is a paste and therefore will not run off any parts it is applied to.
As well as containing the components of ordinary inhibitors, Graphogen contains a strong concentration of colloidal graphite. It therefore forms a film on all treated engine parts which improves lubricating, protecting and inhibiting properties.
The treated engine can be stored for a long time and will have on starting and from the very first revolution, the full protection of the colloidal graphite film against any deficiency in lubrication. Without Graphogen and a lack of lubrication, there could be damage to the engine until full oil pressure is achieved. Once the engine is up to temperature, the Graphogen simply dissolves in to the engine oil.
Where can it be used?
Graphogen can be used on all working surfaces of an engine during assembly, thereby giving the full benefit of the colloidal graphite to the engine parts right from the start. All internal surfaces of moving parts – especially cylinder walls, pistons, bearings, crankshafts, valve stems, camshafts etc can be coated with a liberal layer of Graphogen.
