Overview of McLube Lubrication Technology

McLube has offered cost-effective, reliable lubrication technology for over sixty years. McLube Lubrication Technology is used in industrial and military applications ranging from delicate watch mechanisms to the brutal stresses of aircraft carrier launching systems. Our formulation chemists continually improve existing products and formulate new, cutting-edge lubricants for a variety of industries and applications. We offer a wide range of lubrication products, including dry-film lubricants, grease, paste, oil dispersions, and powders.

 

 

McLube lubricants contain polytetrafluoroethylene, molybdenum disulfide, or a combination of both agents for synergistic effect. Polytetrafluorethylene, also known as Teflon® or PTFE, is a non-reactive resin commonly used as a lubricant or anti-sticking agent. PTFE molecules have incredible durability and flexibility and one of the lowest coefficients of friction available today. Coefficient of Friction is a function of force multiplied by pressure and refers to a given substance’s degree of lubricity. Molybdenum disulfide, or Moly, is a relatively nonreactive lubricating compound with low-friction qualities and high-pressure and temperature tolerances for applications in extreme conditions.

McLube Lubrication Technology is suitable for use on a variety of surfaces, including but not limited to:

  • Machine parts and fittings, gears, cams, fasteners, and springs
  • Leather, plastic and elastomeric gaskets and packing
  • Natural and synthetic cords, twines, cables, and chains

Our Products

Dry Film Lubricants

Include water- and solvent-based dispersions of Moly and/or PTFE with excellent slip characteristics. Our lubricants are proven to reduce power output, prevent part seizure, and protect our customer’s equipment from dust, rust, and wear. McLube Dry-film Lubricants are exceedingly durable, long-lasting, and dry clean to reduce residue and fouling on the applied surface.

Oil Dispersions and Pastes

Formulations of molybdenum disulfide in various oils intended for use on plain bearings, rollers, gears, sliding surfaces, threaded connections, press fittings and chains. They are particularly effective for applications in hard-to-reach areas and high-pressure, extreme temperature conditions. Contact McLube for more information about our oil dispersions and pastes.

Greases

Lithium-based NLGI-II lubricants containing molybdenum disulfide. Our moly greases are ideal for high-stress, high-pressure applications and will protect metal surfaces from rust and corrosion. Moly greases are excellent metal-metal lubricants that will reduce wear and prevent seizure of parts (galling), threads, and gears. McLube greases are available in bulk or aerosolized form.

Powdered Lubricants

Ideal for compounding and tumble operations. We offer pure-PTFE as well as technical fine, super fine, and technical grade moly powders.
