  • Features



Suitable for long-term lubrication
High loading capacity
No drop point
Can be used over a wide temperature range, -35°C to +250°C {-31°F to -482°F), and up to +280°C (536°F) for a brief period
Highly resistant to water
Resistant to many chemicals
Good protection against corrosion (corrosion index 0-1 when tested using the SKF-Emcor method)
Compatible with many plastics and elastomers


Used successfully, for example, for sliding and roller bearings in refrigeration plants, in pump and fan bearings, and also for charging equipment in the chemical and petrochemical industry.

It is used in friction

  • Rolling bearings
  • Gaskets


  • Termal (heat) resistance
  • Very high load carrying capacity
