Schaeffer's Silver Streak Wire Rope Lubricant #199 is a heavy duty extreme pressure lubricant specially formulated to provide extended service life over a wide range of temperatures to all types of wire ropes common to the mining, construction and marine industries.
Blended into Silver Streak Wire Rope Lubricant is a combination of molybdenum disulfide and various solid lubricants that not only fortify the film strength, but also improves the anti-wear and extreme pressure characteristics of the Lubricant beyond those of conventional or asphaltic wire rope lubricants. These additives significantly reduce friction and wear between the rope strands and to the sheaves and drums over which the ropes are drawn.
The penetrating oils present in Silver Streak Wire Rope Lubricant allow the combination of molybdenum disulfide and various solid lubricants to penetrate the inner wire rope core providing not only increased wear protection but also for the lubrication of the vital parts of the wire rope. A combustible non-chlorinated solvent forms a weather resistant protective coating over the wire rope.
