Part no:

High quality, easily scourable, self-emulsifiable mineral based needle lubricant, ISO 22, used for large diameter circular knitting machines 

  • Based on high quality, highly refined mineral oils 
  • Excellent stability
  • Resisting oxidation and breakdown of the oil even at prolonged high operating temperatures.
  • High standard of anti-wear performance 
  • Non-corrosive to the metals normally used for textile machinery.
  • Good cold starting performance.
  • Clean running of machines, minimising the build-up of fibre lint or swarf deposits.
  • Self-emulsifiable in water and exhibits a very high level of scourability from knitted fabrics 
ISO 9001
ISO 14001
  • Particularly recommended for the knitting of cotton or cotton / synthetic fabrics, from dyed or undyed yarns, where the fabric will receive an aqueous scour.
  • Used under the boundary lubricating conditions normally associated with knitting machine needles, sinkers and cams.
  • Can be removed to consistently low oil residues in suitable scouring systems incorporating non-ionic or anionic detergent systems with dilute alkali.

Suitable for application using the automatic oiling units commonly fitted to circular knitting machines, or by manual oiling methods
