Load-Carrying Oil Is Tough on Rust, Gentle on Environment

Designed for marine environments and other applications where environmental concerns require the use of a very low toxicity wire rope and chain lubricant, LE's Wirelife® Low Tox® Penetrating Lubricant (2011) has excellent load-carrying capability and provides outstanding protection against rust, while having the lowest possible toxic effect on the environment.

Lubrication Engineers operates under an ISO 9001 Certified Quality System.

Beneficial Qualities

N/A Environmental Sensitivity
  • Is ideal for use in aquatic or other environmentally sensitive areas
  • Exhibits up to a tenfold reduction in eco-toxicity while maintaining good lubricant performance
  • Has a lower toxic effect on aquatic organisms than conventional competitive products
  • Unlike other biodegradable oils that break down quickly but with relatively high toxicity, Wirelife Low Tox Penetrating Lubricant biodegrades slowly but with less toxicity, minimizing environmental impact and posing less danger to aquatic life
Penetrating Ability
  • Contains a petroleum solvent to enhance penetration into the core of the rope
High Load-Carrying Capacity
  • Excellent for heavily loaded standing or running wire ropes
  • Causes less rope fatigue, which leads to extended wire rope life
Rust & Corrosion Protection
  • Performs extremely well in marine environments
  • Resists rust and corrosion
Easy Application
  • Can be dipped, sprayed on with automatic equipment or hand-applied with a brush.

Why Low Toxicity?

N/A One question confronting scientists in environmental risk assessment is whether it is better for a material to be quickly biodegraded and possess relatively high toxicity or be low in toxicity and biodegrade at a slightly slower rate.

Lubrication Engineers believes that the latter option provides the best protection for the environment because it minimizes overall impact on the ecosystem.

Typical Applications

N/A For wire rope, cable and chain applications with frequent exposure to the environment, particularly those near water.
