Open gear grease GL8 is a purpose made product for use on open gears, wire ropes & sliding surfaces operating under heavy load. Open gear grease GL8 is formulated from a blend of molybdenum disulphide & graphite combined with a special heavy oil based grease. In service the moly content becomes deposited on metal surfaces rubbing together under pressure, including gear teeth and most sliding surfaces, this forms a lubricating film that withstands shock loads, prevents galling seizing & “pick up” etc ,and that is exceptionally water repellent.temperature rang-40°C ~ 204°C(-20 ºF ~400ºF )
Open gear grease GL8 is designed for use on open gears can also be recommended for chains and wire ropes, may be applied by hand / brush or grease gun. Applications include draglines, rope shovels, heavy rotary drying plant, marine winch & trawl gears and port authority cranes. Open gear grease GL8 can be used in many mechanisms without anti-friction bearings or where drag is not critical.
