Rocol

Rocol is a UK-based company, currently part of the ITW group. It is a leading manufacturer of top-quality industrial lubricants and other chemical formulations for applications in industries such as aerospace, automotive, marine, food, pharmaceuticals and many others.

The Rocol products we offer are divided into the following categories:

Lubricating and protective agents

More than 200 different products:

AEROSPEC — a series of aerospace greases. They perform efficiently at extremely low temperatures and extreme pressure, providing great protection against corrosion. Most products are applicable for marine use. Some, such as AEROSPEC 210, are suitable for machine guns and small arms, as they are adapted to operate in hot, dusty environments.

CHAIN & DRIVE – a series of high-performance chain and conveyor lubricants in aerosol form. The CHAIN GUARD Hi-Load spray, which contains molybdenum disulphide, is designed for use on chains operating under heavy loads, such as those in forklifts.

BAKERLUBE – high-temperature chain and conveyor lubricant. Designed for bakery oven chains, under conditions of extreme pressure

DRY MOLY – a high-purity dry film molybdenum disulphide paste for use where wet lubricant cannot be tolerated. It is an assembly lubricant for sliding surfaces such as plain bearings, pins, cams and slides designed to reduce friction and therefore increase life of moving parts in highly corrosive environments.

ANTI-SEIZE – nickel-based anti-seize paste. Particularly suitable for use in extreme, high-temperature environments such as furnaces and exhaust systems, as well as on docks and offshore platforms. Suitable for long-term moisture exposure, they also perform well in salt water.

SAPPHIRE – a wide selection of heavy-duty, high-temperature greases for effective lubrication and protection of various types of bearings used in extreme conditions. Depending on the type, SAPPHIRE products are designed for use in various industrial sectors, including food and pharmaceutical. Reinforced with molybdenum disulphide and suitable for heavy loads, MHT GREASE and MTS 1000 are also used as lubricating agents, while MX33 is designed for use in extremely low temperatures.

HT70 – bearing grease designed for the lubrication of slow speed plain and anti-friction bearings operating at extremely high temperatures, where ordinary greases leave heavy deposits causing blockages and jamming that can eventually lead to bearing failure

TUFGEAR – a series of heavy-duty open gear lubricants, designed for the effective lubrication and protection of gears used in extreme environments

FOODLUBE – a large group of lubricants designed for use in clean environments, such as the food and pharmaceutical industries. A wide variety of chain, conveyor and bearing lubricants suitable for rollers, links and pins, sliders, bushings, pulleys, also includes formulations for lubricating can sealers, bakery oven chains and pin chains in the canning industry. The FOODLUBE series includes waterproof lubricants made for drive chains and conveyors operating above the food production line, where grease dripping is unacceptable, e.g. slaughterhouses and processing plants. Some products, such as FOODLUBE Extreme provide excellent corrosion protection, even in wet conditions, in applications such as dairies, meat processing and abattoirs, additionally protecting the parts from microbial activity, as they contain an anti-microbial compound. We also offer FOODLUBE Autolube – an electromechanical automatic lubrication system, as well refill cartridges, for a wide range of applications including bearings, slides and bushes within clean industries.
