Chain Lube 540M

Chain Lube 540M is a synthetic, molybdenum disulfide-based lubricant designed for high temperature applications. Furthermore, this lubricant is long lasting, even at high temperatures, and leaves little to no varnish or carbon residue. In contrast to when competitor’s lubricants will have degraded, Chain Lube 540M will remain as a liquid for longer periods of time, thereby reducing consumption. This lubricant also softens carbon residue left from previous lubricants. It provides excellent wetting and penetrating capability which will loosen barrels and links that have heavy deposits and no longer move freely.

Chain Lube 540M can be used in applications where temperatures can range from -32°C (-25°F) up to 260°C (500°F).

Chain Lube 540M was specially formulated to be applied by ALT’s automated lubrication systems.
