Chain Oil: RPL-CR1000

Product Description:

The RPL-CR1000 is a semi-synthetic, viscous heavy-duty, metallic chain lubricant used in power transmission applications, especially where operating conditions involve severe exposure to water, weather, dirt or other corrosive contaminates. It is formulated using highly refined, hydro-treated paraffin base oils and synthetic PAO fluids providing excellent overall performance and a high viscosity index that will allow it to out-perform traditional chain oils.

RPL-CR1000 is a non-oily fluids containing sub-micron Y-sized particles of molybdenum disulfide (MoS) for extreme pressure and anti-wear protection. It penetrates to the inner sections of the chain and leaves the outer surfaces dry, especially the parts that are most subjected to wear including pins, bushings and rollers. The outer surfaces stay free of sticky coatings that attract and trap dirt, grit, powders and other contaminants.

The RPL-CR1000 has a unique additive system that ensures long lubricant life, elimination of rust and corrosion, and maximum chain cleanliness. It cuts through pre-existing rust to restore free movement in otherwise undamaged chains.  It is effective in both fresh and salt-water environments and can be applied by brush, bath or automatic systems.

Features and Benefits:

• Superior protection against rust and corrosion

• Penetrates inner part of the chain, reducing frictional drag and unlocking frozen rollers

• Chains last longer without elongation - saves on replacement, repair and adjustments

• Penetrates to the inner core of all rollers, pins and links of the chain to ensure a complete overall film of protective lubricant

• Chains will remain clean without build-up from dust and particles

• Long lasting lubrication film protects against wear and tear

• Temperature will not affect the lubricant ensuring consistent operation

• Reduces lubrication consumption by lasting longer with the smallest amount applied

• Resists wash-out

• Excellent resistance to fresh and salt-water contamination

• Recommended for all roller chain type applications with its wide operating temperature range

Did you know?

The majority of chains fail from the inside. They stretch or kink due to wear and corrosion inside the pin and bushing area.

To lubricate effectively, chain oils must be carefully engineered to penetrate and clean the inside of the chain,  removing contaminants and any trapped water, and leaving behind a heavy film of oil, grease or solid lubricant..
