Self-Healing Fluid Seals & Protects Surfaces

Wirelife® Almasol® Coating Lubricant (2002) is a fluid wire rope lubricant that provides a tough outer coating to seal and protect against fretting corrosion, wear and rust - even under extreme load and moisture. It seals and protects better than any product available. When used in conjunction with Wirelife Monolec® Penetrating Lubricant, maximum protection and wear reduction is achieved.

In addition to its primary function as a coating, it also provides moderate penetration - depending on the tightness of tolerances and the temperature when applied. It contains a petroleum solvent to enhance its ability to penetrate. The solvent evaporates, leaving behind a self-healing, nontacky, protecting film that is highly resistant to wash-off from both fresh and salt water.

Proprietary Additive

N/A LE's proprietary additives are used exclusively in LE lubricants. Wirelife Almasol Coating Lubricant contains Almasol.

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.
