Cable Lube (old)

MultipurposeWire Rope & Cable Lubricant

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 and 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 evaporates, leaving behind a tough, semi-fluid lubricant in the core and on each wire strand.

Features & Benefits
