Castrol Tribol WR 4600

VISCOSITY - ISO 26

Wire Rope Lubricant

DESCRIPTION

Castrol Tribol WR 4600 is a wire rope lubricant specifically developed for wire ropes used in building’s elevators. It is
formulated to allow fast evaporation leaving an oil based residue which lubricates and provides corrosion protection to
the elevator wire rope.

APPLICATIONS

Tribol WR 4600 was designed to provide both lubrication and corrosion protection to elevator wire ropes; it is best
applied by painting with a standard paint brush or using a paint roller and pan.

Tribol WR 4600 is applied to the wire rope as a clear colourless liquid.

The de-aromatised solvent evaporates leaving, a tenacious shear stable lubricating and protecting film.

Tribol WR 4600 is not suitable for use in wick feed automatic lubricators.

ADVANTAGES
  • Low initial viscosity of the dispensed product providing rapid and effective penetration into the ropes and ease of
    coverage of the ropes during application.
  • High evaporation rate, allows ropes to be generously lubricated and lifts returned to service immediately without
    the risks of fling off and dripping of lubricant onto the brake drums, or wear associated with dilution of base
    lubricant.
  • High final viscosity maximising the film strength and abrasion protection to best combat external wear of the
    ropes and sheaves and internal fretting corrosion of the ropes, in order to increase rope and sheave life and
    minimise repair costs.
  • High shear stability, tenacity and longevity of the base lubricant to maximise the film lifetime to
    significantly lengthen the re-lubrication interval and thus minimise the material and labour costs of relubrication
    over the life of the lift.
  • The ability of the base lubricant during downtime to flow back into internal wire contact zones to prevent
    internal fretting, corrosion and wear.
  • High tackiness and low slipperiness of the base lubricant to enhance rather than degrade traction.
  • Excellent corrosion protection suitable for salty coastal environments and outdoor / observation lifts.
  • Contains synthetic polymer and refined low odour solvent.
