Synthetic Grease Withstands High Mold Temperatures
Nanoplas adds a new product to its family of high-performance greases. Syn Lube is a full synthetic, food grade grease designed for the most difficult industrial applications. With a temperature range of -100°F to 500°F, it can be used in almost any molding application. The synthetic formula includes anti-oxidants, extreme pressure and anti-wear additives that meet the most stringent requirements for industrial environments.
The grease does not break down, so it will not bleed into the molding cavity and cause scrapping of parts. It can also be applied in much smaller amounts to avoid over-lubrication of grease, significantly reducing its use. End users have seen as much as 10 times longer life between applications with the grease, reducing maintenance costs and press downtime. Syn Lube is registered as an NSF H-1 level product, so it can be used in molds for medical products, food containers and other food grade applications.
