ANGLOMOIL calcium sulphonates are used in oils to neutralise strong acids, disperse harmful deposits and provide detergency and rust protection. It can also be used in greases. In most greases the thickener is responsible for carrying the oil to the point of lubrication. The oil is then squeezed out under the pressure of the contact and provides the necessary lubrication.
In the new greases calcium sulphonate is broken down and provides an increase in the lubricating film thickness. Calcium sulphonate platelets can bond horizontally to metal surfaces, forming a fish-scale-like coating. This provides ample shear planes which provide load carrying protection.
The greases don't require heavy metals, chlorine or other EP additives. They provide high dropping points, high load bearing properties and high water wash-off resistance.
