Graphite is added to aerosols working in heavily loaded applications to offer greater load carrying capacity, extreme pressure (EP) & boundary lubrication.
The addition of graphite turns the product black in colour. METALUB Drylube 1818 and Drylube 1818A contain graphite powder in an alcohol base. It air dries very quickly leaving a film of graphite coating which is excellent for lubrication. Suitable for use on conveyor belts, chain drives, fork lift masts, sliding mechanisms, etc and as a release agent on extrusion dies, moulds and casting surfaces. Is electrically conductive and has high heat resistance properties. Excellent for maintenance purposes in less than ideal conditions as the greaseless formula will not attract dirt or dust.
