Graphite sticks

Oil-Free Mold and Die Parts

Oil Sticks are a special solid lubricant made from base oil, graphite, and molybdenum disulfide, shaped into easy-to-use sticks and discs using polymers. Because Oil Sticks can be inserted after a part is made, any company can easily make their own oil-free parts.
