Klüber Lubrication, a worldwide manufacturer of specialty lubricants, offers ALTEMP Q NB 50, a white/beige lubricating paste containing a mineral base oil, a barium complex soap and inorganic solid lubricants.
ALTEMP Q NB 50 is used as a universal assembly paste, offering benefits especially in friction points with small to minimum motion under high static and dynamic loads. ALTEMP Q NB 50 can be used for the assembly of frictional connections, e.g. annular springs or split taper sleeves, and positive connections, e.g. bearing seats, profiled guides, etc.
The product has proven particularly successful in the lubrication of clamping chucks. High precision and constant clamping forces are essential requirements in chucks. Any decrease of the clamping force may cause tools or workpieces to become loose. ALTEMP Q NB 50 improves the sliding behavior of moving chuck components, enables constant clamping forces and may therefore be used in all types of chucks, such as scroll, cam and spiral chucks. It prevents stick-slip and protects against tribo- and fretting corrosion in frictional or positive connections. Furthermore, ALTEMP Q NB 50 is resistant to water and media, e.g. against cooling lubricants.
