Correct lubrication of the chains is essential to prevent excessive wear, which can lead to chain lengthening and erratic travel, increased power consumption and a reduction in lubricant adhesion to the chains. It is also important to avoid residue build up which can lead to maintenance problems in terms of time and cost.
Tailoring your lubricant to its specific operating environment is crucial. Compared to conventional mineral oils, trimellitates and polyalphaolefins (PAOs) base stock, our PriolubeTM esters can provide special performance characteristics including:
The Thermogravimetric (TGA) test measures the changes in a product sample's weight through a constant or increase in temperature with respect to time. Here the Priolube esters hold stable at 100% composition until 260 °C, at which oxidation and evaporation occurs as the temperature increases.
Our Emkarox™ VG/W PAG grades also volatilise at high temperatures to leave no sticky residues. They are excellent base oils for solid lubricant dispersions that experience temperatures above 600°C.
Specifically for high temperature applications, these esters provide stability up to 260°C and exhibit clean decomposition above this temperature; outperforming conventional mineral oils, trimellitates and PAO base oils.
