Customer Benefits
  • Smooth, chatter-free, accurate operation
    Special friction modifier provides high lubricity to reduce friction and drag which can cause stick-slip and machine tool chatter, adversely affecting surface finish on machined pieces. Tackiness additive provides a high strength, thick oil film that enables accurate table positioning. 
  • Protects metal surfaces
    EP additive system produces a protective film under heavily loaded conditions to prevent wear and scoring of slideways and guides. Rust and corrosion inhibitor protects machine components. 
  • Stays in place
    Special tackiness agent prevents fluid from draining away from lubricated surfaces, particularly on vertical ways. Tackiness and high film strength minimizes squeeze-out of the lubricant on heavily loaded ways, and prevents fluid wash out by emulsifiable cutting fluids.

Can include; 

  • Machine tool slideways and guides:
    • Combined slideway/machine tool hydraulic systems like those in lathes, planers, shapers, drilling and tapping machines, etc., 
    • Some Horizontal slideways requiring lighter VG 32 oils 
  • Other industrial applications requiring an adhesive, corrosion inhibited lubricant with EP properties 

Always confirm that the product selected is consistent with the original equipment manufacturer's recommendation for the equipment operating conditions and customer's maintenance practices.


Machine tool slideways and guides: 

  • Horizontal slideways (ISO 68) 
  • Light-to-moderate applications (ISO 68) 
  • Vertical slideways (ISO 220) 
  • More severe applications (ISO 220)
