The ELKALUB oils of the 8000 series are polyglycol oils. The oils are used for circulation and gear lubrication. The selected polyglycols are responsible for a low coefficient of friction, a high viscosity index and high oxidation stability. The oils are therefore suitable for lubrication points with larger sliding components (e.g. worm gears, step gears) and applications with special requirements for a constant oil viscosity at changing temperatures and an increased oil life. The EP additive of the LFC 8000 oils ensures a high seizure resistance and very good wear protection for gears and bearings (see also table FZG test). The medium ISO viscosities of the ELKALUB LFC 8000 oils are NSF H1-certified and can therefore be used in the food processing industry or related areas without hesitation. Please note: Polyglycol oils cannot be mixed with mineral oil-based lubricants. Compatibility with plastics, elastomers (except EPDM) and coatings (e.g. interior painting of gears) should be checked before use.
