Lubricating greases: This is a lubricant that stays at the friction point for a long, long time. Its characteristics are optimum drop point, good oxidation resistance, resistance towards fluid and steam, good temperature stability. Klueber greases offer a lot more: rapidly biodegradable, electro-conductive, and resistant to ambient media, high load-carrying capacity.
They are mainly applied under extreme conditions. Metal containing pastes withstand service temperatures as high as 1200°C. Lubricating pastes consist of base oils, additives, and solid lubricant particles. They protect against tribo-corrosion, stick slip, and adhesive wear.
A ready to handle lubricant film, combined with good lubricity and excellent corrosion protection, facilitates clean and easy operation and offers an invaluable advantage in the automatic assembly of mass-produced parts. Lubricating waxes consist of synthetic hydrocarbons of high molecular weight and additives.
