VICKERLUBE BIO WRL is a solvent free, biodegradable wire rope lubricant.
It is formulated using readily renewable and biodegradable base oils and is suitable for applications where lubricant contamination and environmental issues are a concern.
The fluidity helps to ensure that the rope strands are well lubricated, reducing internal wear caused by the metal-to-metal contact occurring when the wires slide or bend around a drum or sheave. Corrosion is prevented by displacing moisture and forming a thin barrier of continuous lubricant film protecting against the elements.
VICKERLUBE BIO WRL is designed for use on wire ropes in applications where biodegradability is a concern or a necessity.
Can be used on wire ropes to protect them while in storage against corrosion. It can also be used to effectively lubricate operational wire ropes that are static or moving, against wear and corrosion.
