Rocky Hill, Conn., May 20, 2005 -- Henkel Corporation has expanded its existing line of food grade NSF H1-approved Loctite® ViperLube® Synthetic Lubricants to include a high performance clear grease, two gear oils, and three lightweight oil grades. All are excellent lubricants for use in a wide range of industrial operating environments.

Loctite® ViperLube® Clear Grease is formulated for general lubrication in a wide variety of industrial applications operating in both low (-45ºF) and high (520ºF intermittent) temperatures. This multi-purpose NLGI grade 2 grease can be used as a general lubricant, a protective anti-rust film, or, in some cases, as a release agent on gaskets and seals. Ideal for severe operating and heavy duty applications, Loctite® ViperLube® Clear Grease offers superior mechanical stability, water resistance, and excellent mobility in high and low temperatures. Life performance for this synthetic grease is up to four times longer than mineral based greases.

Two new Loctite® ViperLube® Gear Oils are now available in 90W (ISO 220) and 140W (ISO 460) for use in all gear boxes including helical, herringbone, bevel and enclosed gears. These oils are formulated to effectively cool equipment operating at high speeds under heavy loads, and to deliver high tolerance of contaminants. Loctite® ViperLube® Gear Oils provide long-life for gears without gumming or discoloring even in severe conditions, and require fewer oil changes.

Three new Loctite® ViperLube® Lightweight Oils extend the life of hydraulic systems, bearings, rotary screw compressors, chains, and valves by transmitting energy, lubricating, sealing, and transferring heat. New grades of lightweight oils include 10W (ISO 32), 15W (ISO 46), and 20W (ISO 68). These oils are thermally stable, minimizing sludge formation and deposit buildup, and extending machine life. The products demonstrate excellent water separation, foam control, and rust protection.
