GRIFLUBE® SLIDE-WAY 68 & 220 Lubricants

Maximum latitude in extreme pressure protection

Hill and Griffith's Slide-Way 68 and 220 were specially formulated using severely hydrotreated napthenic base oils and state-of-the-art additives to ensure a smooth, chatter-free lubrication of slides and ways in all types of metalworking and machine tool applications

These way lubricants will provide maximum latitude in extreme pressure protection and prevent stick-slip chatter in the feed of the machine tool, thus preventing the carriage from surging forward as the feed begins and hesitating while the drive catches up. Besides maintaining a smooth, uninterrupted motion, these products will provide ideal protection against corrosion of both ferrous metals and all cuperous alloys.

Unlike conventional way lubricants, Slide-Way 68 and 220 and unusually resistant to removal by the detergency of synthetic coolants and soluble oils, typically found in a way lube environment. In addition, Slide-Way 68 and 220 are designed as a lower sulfur and fatty acid way lubricant which will resist emulsification in coolants, thus maximizing the efficiency of all types of coolant filtration equipment, including oil wheel and belt skimmers, coalescing filters, ultrafiltration, and centrifugation.
