Why Use VPG-0 Penetrating Grease

Beneficial Qualities

What This Means for you

Wear Reduction & Corrosion Protection

  • Protects wear-intensive areas such as cable drums and cable sheaves
  • Lessens resistance when surfaces slide over one another, ensuring cooler operation
  • Seals all surfaces, protecting against rust and corrosion
  • Sheilds against corrosion attack
  • Excellent for wire rope and cables
Tackiness & Water Resistance
  • Clings tightly to wire ropes
  • Resists sling-off; keeps work area clean
  • Stays in place in presence of heat and moisture for long service life
  • Increases service intervals, requiring less lubricant to be used
Smooth, Quiet Operation
  • Enables strands to move freely, reducing fatigue
  • Softens shocks with its full-bodied, semifluid properties
