Astra Slideway Lubricants have been specially developed for the lubrication of machine tool slideways and tables. They have been formulated from high quality mineral oil, performance additives and incorporate a tackifier to ensure that the lubricant adheres to the moving parts at all times. The performance additives provide outstanding resistance to oxidation, corrosion and wear and eliminate stick slip and judder that sometimes occurs in mechanically and hydraulically operated machine tools. Astra Slideway Lubricants have exceptional film strengths and will prevent pickup and scoring on bearing surfaces under the most severe conditions, including intermittent use. These grades continue to perform even under the continual washing action of water based cutting fluids.
