Dynagard™ Blue CSS13 Environmental Wire Rope Lubricant


Dynagard™ Blue CSS13  is formulated with a high viscosity base oil and engineered with a unique combination of additives to create the highest level of adhesion performance against fling off at high-speed Wire travel. It is also designed to resist water wash off in severe working marine environments.

This heavy duty coating product is for all maintenance applications where there is a high degree of friction wear due to critical workloads. With Dynagard™ Blue CSS13  optimal levels of fluid film protection against friction wear inside the Wire Rope are possible because of its specialized formulation. The same superior fluid film performance and adhesion also generate the perfect protection against corrosion in both salt and freshwater environments.

Due to its excellent water repellency, CSS13 is resistant to water wash off. It also has a wide operation temperature range, preventing both softening and extreme hardening within the most severe working environments. Dynagard™ Blue CSS13 has one of the safest marine Bio-Aquatic LC50 ratings at over 19,000 PPM (Mysidopsis Bahia @ 48 Hours).
