Chemically Non Reactive And Non Volatile. Wide Temperature Range. Non Flammable Has No Flash Point. Outstanding Release Agent. Will Not Corrode Or Promote Rust.
Other lubricants often show good performance in some the above areas, however Mainlube 456 is the only lubricant that has all of the above features.
Wide Temperature Range
Mainlube 456 does not react, decompose, burn or form gummy residues or hard deposits.
456 will provide stable high performance lubrication for extended periods of time in the temperature range Of -80°C to +280°C.
456 will tolerate intermittent high temperatures of up to 320°C for short periods how ever volatilisation and some loss of product will be experienced. Decomposition will be accelerated as the temperature increases until 456 decomposes completely to gases with no possibility of residues at 450°C.
Non Flammable, Has No Flash Point
456 will not burn or explode,
Tests have shown that in oxygen at over 1800 psi. 456 will not ignite at 400°C. At a 100 psi in oxygen and at 100°C over 600 hours 456 showed no pressure loss.
456 can be compressed 1.75 times, this gives excellent load dampening and shock absorption.
Entrapped water and contaminants readily separate from 456 when machinery is stopped. It’s insolubility and density make 456 ideal for submerged applications.
Chemical Resistance and Inertness;
Mainlube 456 is inert and will not react with the following mineral or organic acids and bases,
oxidising or reducing agents.
Red Fuming Nitric
Organic Acids Water
Chemically Resistant Against Metal Oxides Of;
456 Has twice the density of normal hydrocarbon lubricants. It’s 2 x density gives 2 x the dynamic viscosity resulting in a 62% thicker lubricating film that can occur with hydrocarbon lubricants of the same viscosity. This increase in lubricating film gives an equal increase in load carrying capacity when compared with hydrocarbon lubricants.
456‘s Components are biologically inert and cannot be metabolised.
456 Does not support any biological growths and does not biodegrade.
456 Can only be removed by highly halogenated solvents or sand blasting. 456’s Excellent adhesion and inertness make 456 ideal for areas where long term low maintenance lubrication film is required.
456 Is insoluble in all common solvents. This makes 456 highly suitable as a sealant and lubricant in systems where common solvents like aliphated, aromatic and chlorinated hydrocarbons, gasoline, ketone, alcohol, ether or water are used.
Low Reactivity To Metals
Below 290°C Mainlube 456 is non reactive to all metals.
Mould And Release Agent.
Mainlube 456 will give outstanding performance as a release agent and is suitable for use in all industries where outstanding release and Non sticking qualities are required.
Mainlube 456 is compatible with most seal materials and engineering plastics. Following are the results of immersion in 456 at differing test temperatures °C

Important To Note: The Limiting Factor In The Case Of “ U “ Is That The Elastomer/Plastic Deterioration Was Caused From Excessive Heat From The Test. There Was No Reaction Between 456 And The Elastomer/Plastic
Mainlube 456 is suitable for applications like;
Sealed instrument lubrication. Electricity meters.
Chemical industry seal lubrication. Anti seize on difficult metals.
High temperature seal lubrication. Submerged pumps and seals. Pumps and seals in chlorine manufacture. Valve and o ring lubrication.
Submerged pumps and seals in chemical reactors.
Where outstanding lubrication is required between any 2 surfaces. Seal lubricant in high temperature chemically reactive environments.
As a mould release and release agent of unequalled performance in the plastic extrusion and rubber moulding industries.
456 is dielectric and will act as a good insulator at room temperature. Dielectric Breakdown Voltage
