We offer special lubricants and coatings for a
very wide variety of applications on vehicles
and in production line maintenance
Our group customers include:
Automotive Lubricants &
Coatings
Speciality greases
The basics…greases are made up of a base oil, a thickener &
additives.
We have a full range of high efficiency, performance greases
based on mineral & fully synthetic base oils used by many
automotive manufacturers and suppliers
Standard & special greases with different thickeners from lithium,
calcium, barium complex, aluminium complex, sodium and many
others for various applications
Additives are included to enhance performance and to address
the application parameters. For example where a lubricant is
needed to prevent corrosion, assist with extreme pressure/loads,
extreme temperatures and high speeds or where water resistance
or anti wear are issues.

Some grease application examples
Seating – mechanisms, controls, cables and
noise reduction. Plastic compatible greases –
low/high temperature
Door and sunroof systems – Handles, window
regulators/mechanisms, actuators, pivots…
Switches – electrical contact greases and
mechanical applications
Underbonnet – fan bearings, alternator bearings,
EGR valves – high temperatures, durability
Vehicle Refinement
Eliminating trim squeaks and rattles on
any type of interior trim component and
compatible with all substrate materials,
plastics, rubber, metals, leather etc.
We also have anti friction coatings and
lubricants for use as a slip coat for door
and window seals, sunroofs & weatherstrips to reduce friction, wear and very
importantly noise and judder.
Assembly Aids
Our products are used as assembly aids on :Coolant Hoses
Window seals & weather-strips
Fuel hoses
O rings, gaskets & other seals
Air conditioning systems
Plastic clips
Bushings
Complete range of fluids, gels & dry film lubricants to aid
component assembly and decrease assembly effort &
process time, they are compatible with most materials
used.
Production Line Maintenance
Synthetic lubricants which can be used to
extend component life, reduce downtime and
unscheduled maintenance in:Paint oven conveyors
Trolley wheels
High temp’ conveyor chains
E-Coat line – bath/washer chains
Dry Film Lubricants
These products are:Water or solvent based, dry film coatings
Based on PTFE, Graphite, MoS2, Boron
Nitrite or other solid lubricants and a binder
A thin film of a low friction ‘paint’ or coating
Ideal for ‘B’ surface interfaces
Require ‘drying time’ or curing
The most commonly known dry film lubricants
are Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS2 or Moly),
PTFE, and Graphite however there are many
others.

temp torque and compatibility
with plastics
 Guarantee to supply continuity of
special of Customer packaging
needs for future
Lubrication
Points
Application Examples – Dynamic Seals
Application Description
 Dry lubrication (interior and
exterior) of a dynamic seal, with a
low coefficient of friction.
Application Requirements
Decrease of friction coefficient
Dry product
Compatible with seals FPM /ACM
(VITON/ Rubber Polyacrylic).
Water Based
The lubricant has to be maintained
even with the handling before the
assembly.
The lubricant should not trap dust.
Application Examples – Dynamic Seals
Problem
Product
 The customer wanted a water
based product.
Dry film coating
 The lubricant has to be efficient,
no migrating, and compatible with
rubbers
Lubrication Points
