CALTEX Caltex® Way Lubricant

CALTEX Caltex® Way Lubricant

Way Lubricant is a proven performance machine tool slideway lubricant, designed to reduce friction and drag, stick-slip and machine tool chatter. It also offers good demulsification stability and coolant separation performance. Way Lubricant is formulated with highly refined mineral base oils, combined with EP additives, friction modifiers, anti-rust and corrosion additives and thickening agents.

Customer Benefits
  • Excellent separation from metalworking coolants — The SKC (SKC Gleittechnik) coolant separation test showed excellent separation from a wide variety of commercial coolants.
  • Excellent adhesion — Stringiness agent minimizes leakage and helps control lubrication costs.
  • Smooth tool motion — Low coefficient of static friction minimizes the chances of “stick-slip” or jerky movement movement of machine tool sliding parts which have cast iron or plastic moving on cast iron.
  • Tough oil film reduces friction, drag, stick-slip and chatter
  • Prevents wear and corrosion
  • Adhesive agents prevent squeeze-out, even on vertical slideways
  • Machine tool slideways and guides:
  • Horizontal slideways (ISO 68)
  • Light-to-moderate applications (ISO 68)
  • Vertical slideways (ISO 220)
  • More severe applications (ISO 220)
