Brilube Advanced Wire Rope Dressings

  • Advanced corrosion protection
  • High lubricity
  • Reduced fling off
  • Enhanced rope life
  • Effective penetration
  • Easy application

Ropes are like any other machine and to achieve maximum operating life in service lubrication must be applied.

The type of service lubricant and frequency of application varies with the rope construction the operating conditions and its functional application.

Bridon’s unequalled experience in the world of wire rope manufacture and many years spent in the development of specialist in service lubricants have been used in the formulation of the Brilube range of products.

Brilube’s advanced formulation with proven performance helps to get the best from your rope.Brilube 30, 40 and 50 can be applied by brush, drip feed or portable pressurised sprayer.

Brilube 60, 70 and 90 can be pressure applied using in-line application systems which are available to suit a wide range of rope sizes and constructions. These systems operate by forcing the lubricant into the rope and removing the moisture, residual lubricant and contaminants.

Wire Rope Lubrication - Brilube Range

BRILUBE 30 - a semi-dry thin film lubricant with excellent penetration and corrosion resisting properties. Formulated for frequent use in harsh working conditions, whilst minimising lubricant build-up and abrasive particle contamination.
BRILUBE 40 - a synthetic lubricant which deposits a slip-resistant film on the wire surfaces. Formulated for use where frictional grip is vital, it provides internal lubrication whilst avoiding excessive build-up with repeated applications. BRILUBE 40 is recommended for use on lifts, elevators and similar friction driven rope installations.
BRILUBE 50 - an oil based lubricant with additives to increase adherence and enhance corrosion protection. It has excellent penetration and lubrication propertiesfor working ropes in normal industrial environments.
BRILUBE 50 is recommended for overhead cranes, hoist ropes and similar working ropes, where fatigue is the major factor in rope deterioration.
BRILUBE 60 - a medium thixotropic gel lubricant with excellent corrosion protection and stable properties over a wide temperature range. Formulated for long life on static or dynamic ropes. BRILUBE 60 is recommended for outdoor use providing effective lubrication and corrosion protection where only infrequent lubrication is possible.
BRILUBE 70 - a medium thixotropic gel lubricant with stable properties over a wide temperature range offering corrosion protection against marine working conditions. Formulated for long life on static or dynamic ropes in highly aggressive environments. BRILUBE 70 is recommended for use in off-shore and other hostile environments where effective lubrication and optimum corrosion protection are vital.
BRILUBE 90 - a BIODEGRADABLE heavy duty, marine quality wire rope lubricant, developed by Bridon to meet the needs of wire ropes working in highly aggressive conditions and the demand for environmental acceptability. Formulated for heavy duty applications in environmentally sensitive locations. BRILUBE 90 is recommended for use wherever rope lubrication is a problem due to environmental concerns.
