The purpose-designed industrial lubricating waxes and wax emulsions from Klüber Lubrication deliver a ready-to-handle surface. At the same time, they reliably protect your components against wear and corrosion. Depending on the lubrication, for-life lubrication is possible in many cases, thus saving unnecessary labour expenses.
Lubricating waxes are not solid lubricants in the proper sense. They form a dry-to-the-touch layer on the surface of the prepared part to ensure reliable lubrication while reducing boundary and mixed lubrication friction. They consist of high-molecular synthetic hydrocarbons, additives and oil (mineral oil, synthetic hydrocarbon).
Wax emulsions differ from lubricating waxes in that they are water-based and contain emulsifiers. The water evaporates leaving a film that adheres reliably to the surface.
Worth knowing: at a specific temperature waxes become fluid. The melting point depends on the constituents and the composition of the wax.
Dry lubrication using one of our speciality industrial lubricants offers many advantages. While greases are often very susceptible to the adhesion of dust and dirt, the surfaces of wax-lubricated components stay cleaner. Depending on the product, cold application is often possible allowing the wax to be applied to the polished surfaces without other aids.
Lubricating waxes offer excellent protection against wear and corrosion of, for example, ropes and chains. The right speciality lubricant can make the assembly of small parts considerably easier, such as allowing bolts, bushings or rivets to be easily pressed into their fixture due to the lower resistance.
Our lubricating waxes also prevent squeaking of hinges and ensure smooth running and operation of industrial components in frictional contact.
Wax emulsions are particularly suitable for simultaneous automatic lubrication of a high number of small parts. They are easy to apply to industrial components by means of spraying or dip-spin coating. With a suitable wax emulsion, you can coat screws & bolts, rivets, dowels, seals, sliding surfaces or plug-in connections quickly and above all cost-efficiently. The integrated UV indicator enables an effective quality control of the coating after application.
No matter whether you opt for an industrial lubricating wax or a wax emulsion, the products from Klüber Lubrication will support you in optimising the service life of your components and provide chains, ropes and other applications with long-term protection against corrosion and wear.
Klüberplus SK 11-299 was especially developed for the initial lubrication of steel chains. The lubricant is mainly used for chains exposed to dust, dirt, lint or in direct contact with water.
This lubricant is used for conveyor, drive and control chains operating under low load and at chain temperatures of up to 60 °C in non-aggressive environments, where long running times or for-life lubrication can be attained.
Klüberplus SK 02-295 is suitable for many different applications. It is registered as NSF H1 and can be used for the lubrication of food-industry components that have incidental, technically unavoidable food contact. Klüberplus SK 02-295 has been especially developed for industrial applications such as press fits, allowing for easier pressing in of pins, bolts and bushings. It is also very suitable for use in metal forming processes such as the deep drawing of CrNi steel, aluminium sheets or threading and boring of sheets.

Special grease for the lubrication and preservation of wire ropes during manufacture
With our wax emulsion you can coat bolts, rivets or self-tapping screws quickly and cost-effectively. The dry lubricating film has a very low friction coefficient which can be varied according to the ratio of water used. You can also speed up subsequent processing and assembly steps due to the low friction of the components.
