Lubrication Engineers (LE) has introduced the Wirelife Almasol Syn coating lubricant, a tacky, non-asphaltic synthetic lubricant with high film strength.

Suitable for extreme environments and conditions, it provides outer-surface protection for wire rope and cable and comes from the same technology that the company developed to protect large open gears in the mining and quarry industries.

Appropriate for the heavy use demanded in industries such as mining and construction and in marine environments, typical applications for Almasol Syn include standing and running lines, draglines, cranes, derricks, hoists and drilling rigs.

It performs better and lasts longer than standard lubricants, reducing wear by minimising wire-to-wire contact within the rope, according to LE.

Its film strength and high load-carrying capacity, which allows it to withstand heavy loads and cushion shock loading, comes from its heavy synthetic base fluid and its synergistic blend of Almasol, the company’s wear-reducing additive and an extreme pressure additive.

Almasol Syn’s extreme tackiness enables it to cling to metal surfaces, which is necessary in heavy-duty or extreme applications.

As it stays put longer, less lubricant is consumed and less maintenance is needed for reapplication.

The purple-tinted lubricant appears translucent in use, facilitating visual safety inspections.

The synthetic lubricant does not contain any halogenated compounds or heavy metals that could harm the environment and it has been cleared for disposal, as with any other non-hazardous petroleum oil.

It can be applied manually or through automatic spray systems.

Available exclusively in LE lubricants, the Almasol wear-reducing additive adheres to metal surfaces in a microscopic layer, yet will not build on itself or affect clearances.

It has a good load-carrying capacity, is impervious to acid attack and minimises metal-to-metal contact and the resulting friction and wear.

When added to LE lubricants, it provides a high level of protection.
