This stuff is amazing, it can go everywhere, and it's a rubber/plastic protectant. Which is always handy.

Ok, thought my local auto stores would have some of the permatex ceramic extreme brake lubricant but they don't. I guess it's still too new to be out on the shelves here.



I used that purple menace some time last. No issues at all.

Molykote M77, spec'd by Honda and MB. Sil-Glyde or Dow Corning 111 on sliding pins.

Personally, I think nothing can beat Molykote M-77 for caliper slidng pins. It has the best of both worlds... silicone grease for resistance to high temperature and water washout, and moly disulfide for EP service.

You can even use it to butter the caliper piston bore where all the corrosion occurs. The silicone grease would keep the corrosive environment out of the caliper seal area without interfering with the brake fluid.

Someone here M-77 attacks rubber, but I used it on slide pins before.

I just did a brake/bearing job on my friend's beater Toyota truck - I used M-77 on the backing plates/shims/slide pins.

If you read Kestas' link M-77 is specifically recommended for brake parts and other parts "not resistant to mineral oils"
Its features are "Compatable with many types of elastomers and plastics"

Guys, my favorite are SLIPKOTE® 220-R Silicone Disc Brake Caliper Grease and Noise Suppressor. It is very universal and popular brake grease in Russia. -:)

I think that the MB Brake pad paste (Bremsklotzpaste), Part No. A 001 989 94 51 is Copper based Anti-Seize, but not sure. Can anybody tell me the exactly color of that grease?

Honda is not recommend the Molykote M77 for rubber parts of brake system.
Here is recommended Honda’s brake lubes:

Honda Caliper Grease, 08C30-B0224M
Brembo Brake Grease, 08798-9027
3M Brake Lube, 08945
Molykote M77, 08798-9010

The MSDS sheet shows it has >60% moly disulfide by weight.

I seriously doubt that this is a copper paste! Copper paste easily contaminates ABS sensors, and all current MB cars have ABS. Copper paste is not legal to use on brake systems equipped with ABS in Germany.

I have analyzed MB brake pad paste in the lab and can categorically tell you that it IS copper-based antiseize.

How can it wreak havoc with the ABS system? The paste is not magnetic. On the other hand, nickel-based antiseize is magnetic.
