“Load” is the estimated amount of force or stress that will be applied to your component’s surface during operation.
“Environment” refers to the general climate and surroundings in which your equipment will be working.
“Temperature” refers to the component’s operating temperature.
“Speed” considers rotational or reciprocating speeds and rate of motion.
Performance profiles of different types of lubricants
Greases and oils typically are successful in applications that move faster or more frequently … and operate under light to moderate loads … and moderate temperatures.
Pastes and anti-friction coatings contain lubricating solids and generally are specified when speed or frequency slows … when load or vibration increases … and temperatures are extreme.
|Greases||Solid to semisolid materials consisting of a lubricating fluid, thickening agent and additives. Used on rolling element bearings and other moving parts.|
|Compounds||Greaselike materials composed of silicone fluids and silica fillers. Used for their sealing, dielectric and nonmetal-to-metal lubricating properties.|
|Pastes||Greaselike materials containing a very high percentage of solid lubricants. Used for assembly and lubrication of highly loaded, slow-moving parts or threaded fasteners.|
|Oils & fluids||Lubricating fluids fortified with carefully selected additives to provide optimum performance and service life while maximizing protection.|
|Dispersions||Finely divided solid lubricants suspended in lubricating fluids; preferred when it is necessary to apply solid lubricants in liquid form.|
|Anti-friction coatings||“Lubricating paints”; when applied, these materials cure to form dry, solid lubricant coatings that are bonded to the surface.|
