With 15 products chosen from the Rocol Select portfolio, the most suitable and effective solution for everything from machine shop cutting lubricants through to bearing grease, chain and drive spray, anti-seize and penetration compounds, industrial cleaning products and general-purpose sprays for a host of engineering applications can be found.
The machine shop solutions in the Rocol Select portfolio are from the manually-applied Rocol RTD range - RTD Liquid, RTD Compound and RTD Foamcut Spray. The RTD Series can be used with pillar drills, centre lathes, milling machines, bandsaws and other cutting processes where coolant is either not available or suitable. Moreover, it meets MQL strategies that businesses may employ.
The RTD range is proven to improve productivity by up to 400% when compared to alternative products, Rocol says. With five times better anti-wear protection than competitor offerings, the extreme pressure properties of the RTD series demonstrate “outstanding tool protection”. The RTD Compound paste can be applied to tools manually with a brush, whereas the RTD Liquid is supplied in a plastic squeeze bottle and the RTD Foamcut Spray is an aerosol to directly reach the cutting edge.
Bearing greases include the Sapphire 2, Sapphire Advanced 2 and the Sapphire Spray Grease. Suitable for lubricating and protecting bearings, slides, bushes, linkages and pins, the Sapphire Spray Grease and Advance 2 Grease are multi-purpose solutions that are fortified with PTFE for a wide range of applications. The Sapphire Advance 2 Grease has properties that make it more suitable for usage in high speed applications such as fans and electric motors. The Sapphire 2 Grease is a heavy-duty bearing grease to protect against corrosion in humid and damp conditions. Supporting these products is the Chain & Drive Spray that is a high-performance chain lubricant that will protect all types of chains in extreme conditions.
The anti-seize products include the copper based Rocol Anti-Seize Compound and the Rocol Penetrating Spray. The Anti-Seize Compound is a multi-purpose solution that lubricates, protects and eases assembly dismantling, as well as demonstrating excellent corrosion protection. The Penetrating Spray performs as an “exceptional” release agent for corroded fasteners and seized components.
Cleaning products include the Industrial Cleaner Rapid Dry Spray and Foam Cleaner. The solvent-based Industrial Cleaner Rapid Dry Spray efficiently removes all grease, grime, dirt and workplace contamination whilst the water-based Foam Cleaner is suited for cleaning surfaces as its foaming action extends contact time and removes all stubborn residues.
Completing the 15 products in the Rocol Select stable are four general purpose spray cans that include Dry Moly Spray, Precision Silicone Spray, DRY PTFE Spray and Moisture Guard Spray Green/Clear. The characteristics of the general-purpose products include anti-stick long-life lubrication through to dry film coatings for wear resistance and lubrication.
