Phillips 66® Cable Lube is a heavy duty lubricant developed for the lubrication and preservation of wire ropes and cables. It is formulated with a heavy residual base oil along with special rust and corrosion inhibitors and is cut back with a volatile, non-chlorinated solvent for ease of application without heating. Its low viscosity and special wetting properties permit penetration to the core of the wire rope or cable. The solvent then evaporates, leaving a tough, semi-fluid lubricant in the core and on each wire strand.
Cable Lube clings tenaciously and is not readily displaced by water, reducing internal friction and wear between the wire strands while the exterior coating protects, lubricates and cushions the cable around sheaves and drums. The residual film remains pliable even at low ambient temperatures.
