Versatile, Wear-Reducing Oil Preserves Metal to the Core

Wirelife® Monolec® Penetrating Lubricant (2001) has excellent corrosion resistance and high load carrying (EP) properties. It penetrates to the core of wire ropes, whether they are running or stationary. It is also excellent as a penetrating lubricant for chains of all sizes and works well in a variety of other industrial applications. When used in conjunction with Wirelife Almasol® Coating Lubricant, maximum protection and wear reduction is achieved.

It contains a petroleum solvent to enhance its ability to penetrate. The solvent evaporates, leaving behind a film of heavy-bodied lubricant that protects and lubricates each strand and resists leakage from the wire rope core.

Beneficial Qualities

Superior Penetration

  • Penetrates to the core of wire rope and to the pin and bushing area of chains
  • Provides long-lasting lubrication of inner strands of wire rope

High Load-Carrying Capacity & Friction Reduction

  • Contains extreme pressure (EP) additives
  • Works well for heavily loaded standing or running wire ropes
  • Resists fretting wear, a major cause of wire rope failures
  • Provides wear-reducing protection between strands and over sheaves or drums
  • Allows strands to slide against each other with greatly reduced friction, wear and heat

Rust & Corrosion Protection

  • Performs extremely well in marine environments
  • Resists water washout
  • Provides outstanding rust protection and is an excellent metal preservative for all types of equipment
