Good Lubrication, Effective Protection
The main purpose of a wire-rope lubricant is to reduce internal friction so that the rope runs smoothly and to coat the wires so that corrosion is inhibited.
To be most effective, the lubricant should maintain these characteristics for the full range of operating temperatures. Ideally, the lubricant should penetrate the rope core easily and adhere strongly to the wire surfaces.
Light oil lubricants are thinner, clearer, and penetrate the interior of a wire rope more easily, and are less prone to solidify than heavy lubricants.In addition, they are effective when applied in light coatings and are readily adaptable to continuous,automatic lubrication systems.
The corrosion protection provided by light Lanolins is sufficient for most operations,but may not be sufficient for underwater rope usage. Good lubrication can serve as one of the most effective protections against corrosion.
A coating of lubricant helps to seal the wire surfaces from the atmosphere, reducing corrosion; and unlike a zinc coating, lubricants are renewable.
 For wire ropes above 8mm or any wire ropes operating in harsh conditions;
  • Benefits:

    • Provides maximum penetration, to ensure the protection of the individual strands.
    • Excellent corrosion protection, preventing premature failure.
    • Extreme wash off resistance, guaranteeing protection in wet conditions.
    • High flung-off resistance, minimising slip hazards while providing long-term protection.
    • Friction reduction, reducing abrasion and wear.
    • Stable under the presence of salt water, protection does not fail when exposed to seawater.
    • Simple and safe application, nonhazardous to the operator.
    • Ideal for high-pressure spray applications – low viscosity product.
    • High-temperature stability, ensuring protection at high temperatures.
    • Low-temperature capabilities, suitable for Arctic and Antarctic conditions.
    • Eco-friendly, Environmentally Safe, can be used around waterways
    • Ideal for marine environments.
  • Classified as non-Dangerous Goods
  • Keep in a cool well-ventilated place
  • Keep out of reach of children
  • Shelf Life – 10 years if kept sealed in a controlled temperature enclosed environment
