Pseudoplastic Wire Rope Lubricant
Molyslip® S series products are premium performance lubricants specifically designed to overcome the challenge of effectively lubricating and protecting steel wire ropes. Formulated from high-quality base oils and incorporating a pseudoplastic thickener system Molyslip® S series products solve the problem of balancing penetrating properties and wash-off resistance without the unnecessary compromises of conventional greases.
The majority of wear and corrosion of a wire rope occurs in the core. This is hidden away from view and difficult to reach through the outer strands. Therefore an effective rope lubricant must have excellent penetration properties to deliver protection in this vital area. This is best achieved by low viscosity materials that have little resistance to flow. However, low viscosity products have poor resistance to wash-off caused by rain or water immersion, for this a tenacious high viscosity material is required. These competing and opposite demands often result in a compromise product.
WRL-S series products do not compromise. By utilizing a thickener system that exhibits pseudoplastic behavior WRL-S10 and WRL-S20 provide both excellent penetration and wash-off protection.
