iwis antriebssysteme GmbH & Co. KG introduces its new lubricant for chains. Developed specially for iwis’ Eurochain range, the high-performance lubricant is sold under the iwidur brand name. With its excellent lubrication and corrosion protection performance it helps extend our chains’ lifetime.
Recommended especially for chains in environments that contain larger amounts of dust, dirt, fluff, moisture or water, the new state-of-the-art lubricant forms a film with outstanding lubrication and corrosion protection properties whilst remaining dry to the touch. Application is by means of hot immersion. Chains lubricated with iwidur exhibit very low elongation characteristics and have longer relubrication intervals than conventionally lubricated chains. iwidur is extremely stable under pressure, is clean to use and can help reduce chain noise. iwidur can also be used for targeted lubrication of chain links. The new lubricant is also an ideal barrier against paper, textile and ceramic dust, is water-insoluble, odour-free, non-toxic and does not require hazardous substance classification. It can be used in temperatures ranging from -25 to 80 degrees Celsius. An application for USDA-H1 approval for food applications has been submitted. By reducing maintenance requirements and increasing chain life, the use of iwidur also helps cut operating costs.
Designed for optimal cost versus performance, Eurochain drive and conveyor chains have an excellent reputation and the range compliments iwis’ high-performance chain range. The iwis Group’s programme for industrial applications comprises precision and high-performance roller chains, conveyor chains, maintenance-free and corrosion-resistant chains, accumulation chains, special-purpose conveyor chains, chains for agricultural machinery, leaf chains, flat-top chains and modular belts as well as timing drives for automotive applications.
