CAL 1, 2 and 5 emulsions are formulated to replace soap-in-water lubricants; these tend to block jet orifices and suffer from soap build-up, which collects abrasive material and acts as a grinding paste, destroying the mechanisms it is supposed to protect.

These products are water-soluble. Their normal working temperature range is from +5°C to +50°C. They can work below this temperature, but must not be allowed to freeze. CAL 1, 2 and 5 are not compatible with acids, alkalis and electrolytes as these will cause demulsification.

CAL 1, 2 and 5 are formulated from synthetic hydrocarbons. They contain no petroleum mineral hydrocarbons and are free of substances listed as hazardous to health in the latest COSHH Regulations.

CAL 1 Contains 10% Active Ingredient
CAL 2 Contains 20% Active Ingredient
CAL 5 Contains 50% Active Ingredient


The CAL range was designed for a major industrial gas company to lubricate metal conveyors and clean the floor mounted chains that carry the gas bottles around the factory. Gas bottles are frequently returned with mud on the bottoms of the cylinders. The mud falls into the chain channels causing drag, chain wear and damage to the channels. Since using our CAL range, downtime for replacement of chains, gearboxes and burnt out clutches have been greatly reduced.

These products work successfully on nylon chains and can be applied manually, by bottle drip feed or by dip-tank applications.  They are also used for deep tin drawing, and general metal pressing requirements.
