Corrosion Prevention Lubricants

Why use Corrosion Prevention lubricants:

Using a corrosion prevention lubricant can provide:

  • Longer relubrication intervals.
  • Reduced maintenance costs due to minimised wear.
  • Effective protection against different corrosive mediums.
  • Less damage during assembly and disassembly due to easier handling.

When to use Corrosion Prevention lubricants:

  • Before storage of components and equipment that have bare metal surfaces and are defined as critical spares.
  • Before further assembly or processing of finished metallic parts (engines, gearboxes, bearings, and other closed systems), example during shipping or whilst in use.
  • When parts need to be protected after machining.
  • When equipment may come in contact with other metals, paint, plastics, or rubber seals as part of an assembly.
  • When parts need to be dewatered or dried to remove the water miscible coolant.
