Davies has a complete line of “WAY-N-SLIDE OILS” which are designed to be used in a variety of machining such as surface grinders, planers, lathes, broaches and CNC machine centers to name a few. “WAY-N-SLIDE OILS” are easily pumped through automatic oiling machines without gumming or clogging to the point of need. The various “WAY-N-SLIDE OILS” listed below have different lubricating and anti-wipe properties based on cost and need.
“WAY-N-SLIDE OIL 68” is an ISO 68 viscosity oil.
“WAY-N-SLIDE OIL 100” is our most popular formula, which has exceptional boundary lubrication to reduce shear forces. Its outstanding anti-wipe properties allow the product to cling to the ways and slides longer, for better lubrication and greater economy. “WAY-N-SLIDE OIL 100” is compounded from only premium components, not ‘junk oils’ as some lubricants are Mobil’s Vactra 2 has similar properties as “WAY-N-SLIDE OIL 100.”
“WAY-N-SLIDE OIL 400” is a higher viscosity type lubricant and an ISO 220 viscosity. This product features the premium quality of our “WAY-N-SLIDE OIL 100” product, but is built for lube systems requiring greater oil thickness. The heavier oil formulation allows for slower displacement from exposed oiled surfaces due to coolant contact. “WAY-N-SLIDE OIL 400” is a viscosity match to Mobil’s Vactra 4 product.
