451 - 452 - 453 Almasol Wirelife Coating Grease

Tacky Grease Resists Water, Protects Moving Parts

0451-0452-0453-product-infoWirelife® Almasol® Coating Grease is a soft, semifluid formulation designed to coat wire rope as well as moving chain and cable parts to ensure long life and smooth, quiet operation. Its tacky, water-resistant characteristics enable it to adhere strongly to rapidly moving parts and to seal out damaging moisture. Available in three NLGI grades, Wirelife Almasol Coating Grease contains Almasol, LE’s exclusive wear-reducing additive that protects against premature wear and shields metal against corrosive attack.

Proprietary Additive
LE's proprietary additaives are used exclusively in LE lubricants. Wirelife Almasol Coating Lubricant contains Almasol.



0451-0452-0453 Almasol WireLife Rope Coating Lubricant LE Almasol ® wear-reducing additive attaches itself to metal surfaces in a single microscopic layer, yet will not build on itself or affect clearances. It possesses tremendous load-carrying capacity, is impervious to acid attack and minimizes metal-to-metal contact and the resulting friction and wear. When added to LE lubricants, it provides a level of protection available with no other lubricant. available with no other lubricant.

Beneficial Qualities

Wear Reduction & Corrosion Protection

  • Lubricates and reduces wear to wire rope and to all moving parts, including chains (links, pins, bushings) and cables (sheave bushings and bearings, cable strands)
  • Protects wear-intensive areas such as chain sprockets and cable sheaves
  • Lessens resistance when surfaces slide over one another, ensuring cooler operation
  • Seals all surfaces, protecting against rust and corrosion
  • Shields against acid attack

High Load-Carrying Capacity & Smooth Operation

  • Has excellent extreme pressure characterics
  • 60-lb Timken OK load is among the highest of available wire rope lubricants
  • Prevents snatching of wire rope and sheaves
  • Protects sheaves, drums, pins and rollers from excessive wear
  • Protects against fretting wear, a major cause of wire rope failures

Tackiness & Water Resistance

  • Performs well in marine environments
  • Provides outstanding rust protection and is an excellent metal preservative for all types of equipment
  • Requires just a single application to prevent rust on steel parts in longterm storage

Wide Temporature Range

  • Clings tightly to pin, bushing or bearing surfaces
  • Resists sling-off; keeps work area clean
  • Stays in place in presence of steam and moisture for long service life
  • Increases service intervals, requiring less lubricant to be used

Smooth, Quiet Operation

  • Enables metal joints and strands to move freely
  • Softens shocks with its full-bodied, semifluid properties

Versatility

  • Excellent for wire rope, cables, open or enclosed silent chains and roller chains, as well as chain links, pins, bushings and cable sheave bearings
  • Also works great for small, slowturning gearboxes in which operating temperatures are relatively low (less than 71°C/160°F) and a semifluid grease is required
  • Meets USDA H2 criteria for nonfood contact areas of food processing
Performance Requirements Met or Exceeded
  • USDA H2

Available Grades
