VGP-compliant wire rope lubricant


WRL-E40 – VGP-compliant wire rope lubricant

VGP-compliant wire rope lubricant

Molyslip WRL-E40 is a premium-performance lubricant specifically designed to lubricate and protect steel wire ropes and umbilical cables operating in marine environments. Formulated from a combination of bio-based, renewable oils complimented with performance additives that are proven to be non-toxic to aquatic organisms, Molyslip WRL-E40 is certified to the EU Eco-label scheme and is therefore fully compliant with the USA EPA Vessel General Permit (VGP).

Steel wire ropes are complex in construction and are subjected to arduous operating conditions. Movement such as loading and unloading of the rope, bending and flexing over sheaves and pulleys creates high-load points where wires and strands cross over each other. This can result in fretting wear and corrosion – reducing the life of the rope. The high-load carrying solids contained in WRL-E40 form a low friction barrier between the metal surfaces minimizing frictional contact and wear.

Features and benefits

  • High-load carrying and wear-reduction capability protects wires and strands from wear
  • Excellent corrosion resistance protects ropes operating in wet conditions
  • Adhesive, tenacious film extends re-lubrication intervals
  • EU Eco-label certified and fully compliant with USA VGP 2013

Instructions for use

Molyslip WRL-E40 can be applied manually with a brush or swab, or via a high-pressure applicator (for example a Masto type system).
