Boundary Lubricant Prevents Metal-to-Metal Contact

Dillon Chucks and Jaws has introduced HPG500 - a boundary lubricant designed to prevent metal-to-metal contact under high load and slow speed conditions for either high-end manual chucks or power chucks. An all-purpose industrial lubricant, HPG500 can be used in bearings, bushings, slides, pivots, tracks - all important engineering components of manual and power chucks.

HPG500 is recommended wherever high lubricity, extreme pressure (EP) properties, mechanical stability, rust and corrosion protection, water washout protection and good oxidation stability are required. Designed for safe operation and maintaining maximum gripping pressure of chucks, HPG500 is available in 14 oz. tubes. It can be purchased by the tube, in cases of 10 or 50 each. A greasing set, consisting of a grease gun, two tubes of grease and one grease adaptor fitting, is also available. HPG500 is also safe to use in machining centers that require EPI grease.

This high-performance NLDI Grade 2 lubricating grease has enhanced mechanical stability, high load carrying capacity and increased water and moisture resistance. It has a water washout rating of less than 3%. "Its unique formulation gives it outstanding rust and corrosion resistance, even in the presence of a synthetic and oil-based coolant environment," said a company spokesperson. "This chuck lubricating grease handles high loads and provides long-term corrosion protection under the most hostile conditions."

The environmentally friendly formulation contains no heavy metals or other environmentally undesirable materials such as compounds containing antimony, barium, lead, chlorine, phenols or phosphorus. "This lithium-free formula does not react negatively when contacting the water contained in water-based coolants - as opposed to lubricants with lithium which cause lithium build-up on the internal workings of the chuck," said the spokesperson.
