Water Soluble Knitting Oil:
RPL-SPO (Uniknit) Series

Series Range:

RPL-SPO15
RPL-SPO22

Product Description:

The RPL-SPO series are transparent, pure white soluble oils manufactured using highly refined white mineral oils and special emulsifiers designed for a range of knitting and textile applications including shearing, spindle, roving, knitting, weaving, finishing and other related manufacturing.

The RPL-SPO oils have special solvency characteristics that prevent gum deposit and enable latches to remain free of sludge and to operate continuously throughout the life of the needle. They have excellent anti-wear properties, even when abrasive yarns are used, and they allow for higher needle speeds resulting in increased production efficiencies. They provide outstanding protection against rust and corrosion. As well, these oils have a low volatility which helps eliminate misting and fogging which reduces the chance of fabric contamination. In the case of incidental contact, these oils are formulated to permit the complete removal of potential residues when fabrics are washed in hot water.

The RPL-SPO oils also have High Viscosity Indices (V.I.) resulting in exceptional lubrication over a wide range of temperatures. Typical applications include a wide range of severe-need knitting and textile applications including high-speed rapier looms and Jacquard and Dobbies machinery. Whenever your textile machinery is subjected to the extremes of high speed, temperature, humidity or load, these oils are designed to perform to your required specifications.

Features and Benefits:

Clean, water-white colour

Water soluble - any contact may be easily and effectively washed-out

Reduces needle and sewing machine friction and prevents metal-to-metal contact.

Contain additives with natural self-cleaning and non-sludge forming properties which clean as they lubricate, allowing machinery to operate freely and efficiently.

Low coefficient of friction to keep machines running cooler with less wear and reduced power consumption
