MIL-S-8660C Silicone Lubricating Compound
SSP-1401-L is a silicone lubricating compound that meets the requirements of the MIL-S-8660C specification and is part of the U.S. government’s Qualified Products List (QPL). This light-bodied silicone compound is comparable to DC 4 electrical insulating compound from Dow Corning, and to G-624 dielectric silicone grease from Novagard.
Electrically Insulating, Moisture Proof, and Non-Corrosive
SSP-1401-L has an operating temperature range of -75°F to 400°F and an unworked penetration in the 200 to 260 range with a typical value of 230. This silicone lubricating compound is moisture proof and water repellent, electrically insulating, non-corrosive, and low in volatile chemicals. SSP-1401-L also has excellent stability and dispersion characteristics.
Applications for SSP-1401-L Silicone Lubricant Compound
SSP-1401-L is used in applications that require conformance and certification to MIL-S-86660C requirements for non-melting, heat-stable silicone compounds. Moisture proofing, electrical insulation, and mechanical lubrication applications include electrical connections, ignition systems, electronics components, threaded connectors, and plastic and rubber parts.
