Recommended Lubricants

Quantum® EAL 5353, a Hexagon Product

Quantum® EAL 5353 is a VGP compliant NLGI 1 grease specifically designed for wire rope lubrication. It provides adhesion to metal surfaces, it has a high dropping point and excellent water washout resistance as demonstrated in the ASTM D 1264 water washout test (2,7% loss). It is recommended as a premium wire rope lubricant suitable for marine and industrial applications. Quantum® 5353, is an Environmentally Acceptable Lubricant (EAL) according to the statutes and requirements of section 2.2.9 of the US EPA VGP (Vessel General Permit). It is an approved Viper WRL lubricant.

Almatek® 1235 a Lubrication Engineers product

Almatek® 1235 is a very tacky NLGI 1 lithium grease that adheres tenaciously on metal surfaces. It is very difficult to be washed off even when there is a lot of water pressure. It contains Almasol® Lubrication Engineers proprietary additive that reduces friction and wears. It is recommended when there is no need for an EAL grease and there is the frequent immersion of ropes into the water, particularly when there is strong water flow.
