New DayLube high performance grease from Dayton Progress uses nano-ceramic particles which act as sub-microscopic ball bearings to provide continuous lubrication to steel surfaces, and is especially suited for use with fork lifts, lift trucks and other material handling devices. With a much lower coefficient of friction at all temperatures than traditional PTFE greases, chemically inert DAYLube is also environmentally friendly. It maintains its viscosity across full temperature range and is NSF-H1 Food Grade Certified. Extraordinary adhesion extends production up to 10-times that of other greases. This proven nano-ceramic lubricating grease does not soften or run out - after 100,000 production strokes it shows no evidence of breaking down. DAYLube provides unparalleled friction reduction and wear resistance, making it ideal for a wide range of industrial applications. In addition to the protection of masts and runners for fork lifts and lift trucks, DAYLube is also proven on conveyors and their bearings, as well as
DAYLube operates in temperature ranges from -40°F to 800°F – and the nano-ceramic particles remain intact to 2500°F. It survived the ASTME 4-ball weld test with no weld and minimal damage to all ball bearings. Competitive brands, on the other hand, produced a soft weld after 2 seconds and complete failure and major damage to all 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 for their conveyors report significantly longer service life – up to 10-times longer than traditional PTFE lubricants,” said Dayton Progress Marketing Communications Manager Bob Hedrick. “Even when compared to nanotechnology products, DAYLube has a lower cost per ounce. When considering all factors there is no better lubricating value than DAYLube.”
DAYLube is available in 16-ounce tubes and 16-ounce jars, as well as cases of 12 each (jars or tubes). Industries benefiting from the use of DAYLube include material handling, distribution centers, aerospace, agricultural, automotive, can makers, consumer goods, food and beverage processing, general manufacturing, marine, medical/scientific, military/national defense, pharmaceutical, stamping & fabricating, truck & bus, and more.
