Lubes cover hard to reach places

Spray valve improves lube processes

Cutting fluid handles difficult alloys

Continuous steel lubrication

DAYLube lubricant grease from Dayton Progress uses nanoceramic particles that act as sub-microscopic ball bearings to provide continuous lubrication to steel surfaces on heavy equipment such as loaders, dozers, haul trucks, excavators, skidders and crushers.

With a much lower friction coefficient at all temperatures than traditional PTFE greases, chemically inert DAYLube is also environmentally friendly. It maintains its viscosity across the full temperature range and does not soften or run out. Adhesion extends production up to 10-times that of other greases by providing significant friction reduction and wear-resistance.

DAYLube operates in temperature ranges from -40 to 425 degrees C, while the nanoceramic particles remain intact to 1,300 degrees C. The lubricant has high load-bearing properties, a low dielectric constant, does not contain metal or silicone and is resistant to steam, acids, and most chemical products.

Dayton Process is a Dayton, Ohio manufacturer of nanoceramic greases and precision punches.
