High temperature lubricant

12 April, 2006 | Supplied by: ITW Polymers & Fluids

Rocol High Temp Synthetic Chain Lube, a high temperature lubricant, has been specially formulated to lubricate chains exposed to temperatures as high as 280°C. With conventional graphite/water mix chain lubricants, precious production time is lost as the lubricant cannot be applied to the chain unless it is below 100°C. As the lube can be applied at temperatures of up to 280°C, ovens do not need to be shut down.
