GRAPHOGEN ASSEMBLY PASTE (125 GRAMS)
Graphogen Assembly Compound is a colloidal graphite paste in oil and gives essential protection and peace of mind when running in a new Lotus engine build.
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 and as a paste will not run off any parts it is applied to.
Graphogen, as well as containing the components of ordinary inhibitors, contains a strong concentration of colloidal graphite. It, therefore, forms a film on all treated engine parts, with improved 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.
