Dillon HPG500 Boundary Lubricant Prevents Metal-to-Metal Contact Under High Loads and Slow Speeds It is Ideal for High-end Manual and Power Chucks

Press release date: Sep 04, 2013

Springfield, OH – Dillon Chucks and Jaws introduces HPG500 – a premium boundary lubricant that prevents metal-to-metal contact under high load and slow speed conditions for either high-end manual chucks or power chucks. This premium, high-performance NLDI Grade 2, lubricating grease has exceptional mechanical stability, very high load carrying capacity, and excellent water and moisture resistance. It has a water washout rating of less than 3 % - making it one of the most water resistant products available. Plus, its unique formulation gives it outstanding rust and corrosion resistance, even in the presence of a synthetic and oil based coolant environment. This chuck lubricating grease handles high loads, and provides long term corrosion protection under the most hostile conditions.

The environmentally friendly formulation contains no heavy metals or other environmentally undesirable materials such as compounds containing antimony, barium, lead, chlorine, phenols, or phosphorus. This lithium-free formula does not react negatively when contacting the water contained in water based coolants – as opposed to lubricants with lithium which cause lithium build-up on the internal workings of the chuck.

An all-purpose industrial lubricant, HPG500 can be used in bearings, bushings, slides, pivots, tracks, etc., - all important engineering components of manual and power chucks.  It is recommended wherever high lubricity, EP (Extreme Pressure) properties, mechanical stability, rust and corrosion protection, water washout protection, and good oxidation stability are required.

Essential for the safe operation, and maintaining maximum gripping pressure of chucks, HPG500 is available in 14oz tubes.  It can be purchased by the tube, in cases of 10 or 50 each. A greasing set, consisting of a grease gun, 2 tubes of grease and one grease adaptor fitting, is also available. HPG500 is also safe to use in your machine centers that require EPI grease.
