Chemola™ Desco WLD-120

Wire Cable Lubricant and Dressing


Chemola™ Desco WLD-120 is a synthetic base, fast-penetrating, adhesive, thin-film, extreme pressure, light bodied wire rope lubricant made for pour-on or drip system application without heating. It reduces internal and external friction, abrasive wear and bending stresses. The special non-hardening synthetic lubricant has an affinity for metals and provides protection against corrosion from weather. A special carrier moves quickly through old grease to lubricate the important inner strands by carrying with it the needed lubricants. The penetrating chemical evaporates and leaves a micro-thin layer of lubricant on every strand. WLD-120 is effective in reducing the internal abrasion of wires rubbing against each other during the bending and stressing of the wire rope in operation.

Recommended Uses
Mining, drag lines, oilfield drilling rigs, marine cables, logging slings, crane cables, etc. It is ideal for use with IWRC, hemp and polypropylene centers. Agitate well before using. Keep container tightly closed to prevent evaporation of penetrant.
