Speciality Lubricants

Chain Oils

IKV Lubricants have a full range of high quality chain oils developed specifically for applications where a viscous structure and adhesive nature is required to prevent dripping or ‘spin off’ of the oil due to high speed movement or where anti-wash off and corrosion protection in wet or humid conditions is required.

These tenacious and durable long life chain lubricants are available in a wide range of viscosities including 68 cSt, 150 cSt, 320 cSt, 460 cSt to 4200 cSt and pack sizes from 5 litre cans up to 205 litre drums. They are also available as aerosol sprays and for selected grades as a pump or trigger spray.

These high performance chain oils have been specially formulated to protect and lubricate chains, cables and drives working in the most arduous conditions across a wide range of industries. They can be used in washer plants, cleaning baths and other applications where a durable and adhesive structure lubricant are required to prevent wash off and to form a barrier against water, detergents, chemicals and to prevent corrosion.

Some grades can also be used as a slideway oil for machinery working in wet conditions.

IKV Lubricants are specialists in high temperature lubricants, oils, greases and dry film coatings. These include ester oils, fluorinated fluids and greases and dry film coatings.

IKV TRIBOCHAIN WR range

The TRIBOCHAIN WR products offer excellent water resistance and anti-corrosive abilities in the most harsh and  extreme environments. There are a number of different vicosity chain oils available, with anti-fling and penetrating properties used to lubricate chains within a typical temperature range of -20 to 150°C.

Our TRIBOCHAIN WR products include:-

IKV TRIBOCHAIN 68 WR is a tenacious, low viscosity chain oil with a viscous structure and excellent anti-fling properties.

IKV TRIBOCHAIN 150 WR is a mid-range viscosity adherent chain oil with anti-fling characteristics – also available in aerosol form as our IKV TRIBOCHAIN 150 WR Spray (750ml and 500ml).

IKV TRIBOCHAIN 320 WR is a mid to high range viscosity chain oil which produces a thicker lubricating film with excellent adherence.

IKV TRIBOCHAIN 460 WR  is a high viscosity chain oil for use in applications where additional viscous structure is required.

IKV TRIBOCHAIN HT range

The IKV TRIBOCHAIN HT range of synthetic ester bakery chain oils is ideal for bakery chains running at extreme temperatures where minimal lacquering and re-lubrication coupled with long chain life is the goal. These oils can be applied either automatically or brushed on manually and we can supply TRIBOCHAIN HT oils in aerosol form.

IKV TRIBOCHAIN 100 HT is a special synthetic ester oil with an extremely low evaporation rate even when working in the temperature range of 200°C to 260°C. Its excellent resistance to oxidation and extremely well balanced additive package make it very stable in a large range of temperatures and helps avoid lacquer residues at high temperatures.

IKV TRIBOCHAIN 100 HT also provides excellent anti-wear and extreme pressure protection. It was specifically developed for the lubrication of chains and bearings which are operating at temperatures between 170°C and 280°C in continuous use.

Typical applications include:

  • chains and tracks for textile frames
  • chains and rollers for continuous particle board presses
  • chains and bearings situated in stoves, ovens and dryers
  • chains and rollers in high temperature bakery ovens

IKV TRIBOCHAIN 100 HT can be used up to 280 °C as a high temperature oil for circulation or total loss oil applications. It can be applied manually or automatically, by spraying, dosing, brushing, wiping or by drip oiler.

IKV TRIBOCHAIN 150 HT  is a special synthetic ester oil which does not form coking residues when subjected to high temperatures. It offers extremely low evaporation rate even when working in the temperature range of 200°C to 260°C and has excellent resistance to oxidation. An extremely well balanced additive package make it very stable in a large range of temperatures and helps avoid lacquer residues at higher temperatures.

IKV TRIBOCHAIN 250 HT is also a special synthetic ester oil with an extremely low evaporation rate which can be used up to 280 °C as a high temperature oil for circulation or total loss oil applications.

IKV TRIBOCHAIN 320 HTN is a totally synthetic oil with a viscous structure and an extremely low evaporation rate even when working continuously in the temperature range of 200°C to 260°C.

IKV TRIBOFOOD CHN 300 HTBN is a premium quality, food grade, synthetic ester chain lubricant manufactured using the latest technologically advanced additive package. This new technology sub micron ceramic additive package ensures excellent lubrication up to 650°C as a dry film and the synthetic base oil offers protection up to 300°C as a wet lubricant. IKV TRIBOFOOD CHN 300 HTBN has excellent thermal stability, protecting and extending the life of the chain at higher temperatures. The new technology base oil and additive package ensures that the chain runs at optimum life with minimum “stretch” and wear. The base oil does not carbonise even at higher temperatures, giving you a clean, long lasting chain oil, therefore reducing maintenance and production costs. It is designed for use on all high temperature chains in the food industry, such as bakery oven chains and attachment chains.

IKV FLUOR MPA 2H is a non-flammable, white grease developed from an extremely thermally stable fluorinated oil, tetrafluoroethylene telomers with an anti-corrosion additive. This grease provides an extraordinary combination of properties which include:

  • Outstanding oxidation resistance
  • Excellent high temperature stability
  • Excellent lubrication properties
  • Compatibility with metals, plastics and elastomers
  • Radiation resistance
  • Exceptional chemical inertness and resistance to chemical degradation
