Product Overview

MOLYKOTE® 3099 HVIC (high voltage insulator coating) Compound is a high performance, grease-like compound engineered for long-term protection of electrical insulators and contacts.  MOLYKOTE® 3099 HVIC exhibits excellent resistance to water and UV light exposure where conventional silicone products may degrade and fail. MOLYKOTE® 3099 HVIC Compound is engineered to resist arcing and significantly outperforms traditional compound chemistries when exposed to surface arcs.

Applications

MOLYKOTE® 3099 HVIC Compound provides exceptional long term electrical resistance and protection in a wide range of electrical insulator and connector applications. 
 
It is recommended to apply MOLYKOTE® 3099 HVIC Compound in a layer between 1/16” and 1/8” thick and can be applied via airless sprayer, by hand, with a cloth pad, or bristle brush.
