Customer Benefits

Aries lubricants deliver value through:

  • Long equipment life — Extreme pressure performance withstands heavy shock loads typical of rock drill service, protecting the equipment against rapid wear.
  • Reliability in wet conditions — Provides a tenacious film that clings to lubricated parts. Resists being washed away by trace water in the compressed air.
  • Protection in wet environments — Antirust performance protects critical parts from the corrosive action of wet environments.


Aries lubricants are designed to give maximum protection to percussion rock drills.They are formulated from highly refined, high viscosity index, paraffinic base stocks and additives, which provide performance characteristics expected of an exceptional rock drill oil.


Aries lubricants have proven excellent in all air-operated tools, such as jackhammers, drifters, etc.

Always confirm that the product selected is consistent with the original equipment manufacturer’s recommendation for the equipment operating conditions and customer’s maintenance practices.
