WRO-EP is recommended for the general maintenance
of wire rope. It provides
corrosion protection and lubrication for
standing and running rigging, drag lines and bridge cable. The high
tackiness of WRO-EP minimizes throw-off on higher speed running rigging
and provides higher resistance to water abrasion and washout when used in
Extreme pressure properties provide excellent
lubrication for both wire rope and open gear applications.
rope and cable should be first treated with FLUID FILMŪ Liquid A to attain
Where a low viscosity material is desired for a
slushing compound, the use of FLUID FILMŪ Gel WRL is recommended. This
product also has extreme pressure properties.
WRO-EP Wire Rope Lubricant may be applied using a
leather or lamb's wool glove. When a considerable length of wire is to be
coated, it may be
advantageous to apply as follows:
Form a cone of
leather, about two feet long
and six inches in diameter at the base.
Both base and apex are left open with the wire rope passing through the
apex. The apex is tightly lashed around the wire with marlin for about six
inches. WRO-EP is applied to the wire with a rag, then the leather cone is
dragged along the wire (or vice versa) so that the excess is scraped off
into the cone, the remainder being well worked into the rope crevices.
The amount of material left on the wire can be regulated by adjusting the
marlin lashing. Too heavy an application not only wastes material but also
can result in throw-off, particularly in running cable.
