Textile Oil: Wonderknit XL

Product Description:

Wonderknit XL Textile oil is a clear, light oil manufactured using highly refined white mineral oils and designed for a range of knitting and textile applications including shearing, spindle, roving, knitting, weaving, finishing and other related manufacturing.  It contains a complete rust and corrosion additive package that protects delicate textile machinery components and provides superior lubrication with a low co-efficient of friction. It is formulated to be readily dispersed with water and provides excellent lubricity to reduce wear.  Wonderknit XL maintains operational purity without forming acids, resigns or gummy residues.

In the case of incidental contact with fabric or fibers, Wonderknit XL  is formulated to be a truly washable oil using just plain water.  Unlike certain “scourable” textile oils, this oil can be removed without the use of commercial washing liquors or caustic cleaning agents.

Typical applications include:

•  High speed textile production machinery including needles, lifters, and sinkers

•  Rapier guides and jacquard components on weaving machines

•  Rings and travelers on yarn spinning frames and twisting equipment

•  Cutting rolls on shearing machines.
