Esgard

Esgard heavy duty wire rope and cable lube is a premium wire rope and cable dressing that extends cable life by penetrating the cable and preventing rust and corrosion. Esgard heavy duty wire rope and cable lube displaces moisture and lubricates against wear. It is also an effective boom slide lubricant for cranes. In addition, it is flexible down to -50°F (-46°C) and will not drop up to over 500°F (260°C). Esgard heavy duty wire rope and cable lube does not produce a sheen when immersed in either fresh or saltwater.

Wire ropes of all types, anchor lines, pendant lines, guy wires, large diameter to small diameter main load lines on cranes. Recommended for use on wire rope in conjunction with dynamic heave compensation equipment.
