Features and Benefits

Sasol Slideway Oil 68 & 220 have:

  • Good extreme pressure properties
  • Friction modifiers and oiliness additives to prevent stick/slip and minimise chatter
  • Tackiness and anti-corrosive additives to promote adhesion to and protection of metal surfaces

Their excellent anti-corrosive properties and ability to adhere to metal surfaces enable them to be used as preservatives for stored equipment. They must, however, be used with discretion in sensitive equipment such as automatic transmissions where incomplete removal of the tackiness additive may cause problems.
