Rope-Tek™ WRD

Wire Rope Lubricants

A range of high-performance wire rope lubricants

Rope-Tek™ WRD is a range of high-performance lubricants, specifically designed to lubricate and protect steel wire ropes. Each product is formulated from high-performance base oils and thickeners and contains an advanced additive system that minimises friction and wear and delivers outstanding corrosion protection.

Steel wire ropes are complex in construction and are subject to arduous operating conditions. Movement such as loading and unloading of the rope, bending and flexing over sheaves and pulleys, creates high load points where wires and strands cross over each other. This can result in fretting wear and corrosion, reducing the life of the rope.

The high-load carrying solids contained in Rope-Tek™ WRD products form a low-friction barrier between the metal surfaces, minimising frictional contact and wear.

Due to the vastly different environments that wire ropes have to operate in, Metalube® has a comprehensive range of wire rope lubricants to provide the right product for every condition and situation.

Features and Benefits

  • Excellent resistance to moisture and oxidation protects against corrosion induced failure
  • High-load carrying solids minimise friction and wear between wires and strands
  • Extreme resistance to water prevents the lubricant being washed from the rope

Pack Sizes
