Dayton Lamina recently introduced their DayLube high-performance nano-ceramic grease. The grease is designed to maintain its original viscosity and adhesion after 100,000 production strokes. Nano-ceramic particles act as sub-microscopic ball bearings to provide continuous lubrication to steel surfaces.
DayLube is designed to have a lower coefficient of friction at all temperatures than traditional PTFE greases and to be chemically inert. DayLube is meant for industrial applications such as the protection of bearings, bushings cables, cams, chains, conveyors, gears, lifters, machine parts, robotics, slides, wear plates and more.
DayLube operates in temperature ranges from -40°F to 800°F, and the nanoceramic particles remain intact up to 2500°F. It survived the ASTME 4-ball weld test with no weld and minimal damage to all ball bearings.
DayLube has high load-bearing properties, a low dielectric constant, does not contain metal or silicone and is resistant to steam, acids, and most chemical products.
“Customers using DayLube report significantly longer service life – up to 10-times longer – than traditional PTFE lubricants” said Dayton Progress Marketing Communications Manager Brian Marsh. “Even when compared to nanotechnology products, DayLube has a lower cost per ounce. When considering all factors there is not a better lubricating value than DayLube.”DayLube is available in 16-ounce tubes and 16-ounce jars, as well as 1-gallon and 5-gallon pails. DayLube is marketed mainly towards the aerospace, agricultural, automotive, can makers, consumer goods, food and beverage processing, general manufacturing, marine, material handling, medical/scientific, military/national defense, pharmaceutical, stamping & fabricating, and truck and bus industries.
