IKV Lubricants manufacture products which are used in kiln bearings, open gears and drives, ball and rod mills, rolling mills and continuous casting applications.
All of our products are tried and tested in this industrial sector.
Our lubricants are used for the entire process chain leading up to the production of steel, from ore processing, smelting in the blast furnace - including production of the coke required in the process - the actual steelmaking and continuous casting, to the hot and cold rolling mills.
In steel production, low operating and maintenance costs are as important as reliable operation.
Our products support steel production and steel processing plants by supply of speciality lubricants that safeguard production, are eco-friendly and can extend equipment life.
Barium complex greases have excellent properties as high performance greases, they have outstanding chemical resistance, excellent load carrying capacity and very good temperature resistance.
Benefiting from a drop point above 220°C this soap has the advantage of giving grease a very good water resistance as well as good mechanical operating stability.

For forging applications we recommend IKV-TRIBOGRAF 1417 is a semi-colloidal suspension in water. It contains solid lubricants with a very pure synthetic graphite base. It is a black liquid containing additives which are specially selected to protect against corrosion and the development of bacteria. IKV-TRIBOGRAF 1417 is recommended for the lubrication of chains subjected to temperatures in excess of 300°C and above 500°C.
IKV-TRIBOGRAF 1417 can be used in forging with dilutions of up to 3% depending on the complexity of the components - it can be diluted with water in varying proportion depending on the consistency required and is then applied through an automatic lubrication system or manually applied using a pump spray or brush. After the evaporation of water, IKV-TRIBOGRAF 1417 leaves a film of dry solid lubricants which ensures a good lubrication.
Bentone is an absorbent aluminium phyllosilicate, essentially a fine clay used as a non-melting thickener which is ideal for steel industry high-temperature applications. Bentone has a high drop point - up to 300°C. This is used as a thickener to give grease/gels good water resistance as well as good mechanical operating stability.
Bentone gels have a low sensitivity to temperature variations and therefore provide greater dynamic viscosity and temperature stability. The IKV bentone thickened grease/ gel range includes:-
IKV-TRIBOSTAR MGI 462 is a high viscosity mineral oil with bentone thickener. It does not melt or become fluid at high temperatures. It has good anti-corrosion properties and good resistance to high loads. It is compatible with most good quality seals. It is ideal for use on bearings, slides and gears operating at high temperatures.
IKV-TRIBOSTAR MGI 462 BM is a medium to high viscosity oil with bentone thickener. It is reinforced with Molybdenum Di-sulphide (MoS2) as a boundary lubricant and EP additive. It is non-melting and ideal at high temperatures.
IKV-TRIBOSTAR PGI 42 is a PAO with bentone thickener. It is ideal for use on bearings subjected to high temperatures or high rotation speeds or where a weak torque resistance is required.
IKV-TRIBOSTAR PGI 102 contains a medium viscosity sythetic base oil with bentone thickener. It offers excellent corrosion protection, resistance to high loads and good mechanical stability.
IKV-TRIBOSTAR EGI 102 GM is a synthetic ester with bentone thickener. It is for use on bearings subjected to very high temperatures and heavy loads.
IKV-TRIBOSTAR MAK 681 has a mineral oil base, drop point of 240°C & working temperature capacity of -15 to 160°C. It also has good pumpability and is suitable for large centralised greasing systems (steel industry etc).
IKV-TRIBOSTAR MAK 682 has a mineral oil base, drop point of 250°C & working temperature capacity of -15 to 160°C. It also has good pumpability and is suitable for large centralised greasing systems (steel industry etc).
IKV-TRIBOSTAR MAK 680/1G has a mineral oil base, graphite solids, a drop point of 250°C & working temperature capacity of -15 to 160°C. It also has good pumpability and is suitable for large centralised greasing systems (steel industry etc).
IKV-TRIBOSTAR MAK 681/2G has a mineral oil base, graphite solids, a drop point of 250°C & working temperature capacity of -15 to 160°C. It also has good pumpability and is suitable for large centralised greasing systems (steel industry etc).
IKV’s fluorinated oils and greases offer the ultimate in lubricant performance throughout a wide range of different industries and applications where conventional and other synthetic lubricants are not able to survive - for example:-
ZAROX TYA 511 is an NLGI grade 1, non-flammable white grease developed from a perfluoroalkyl polyether type oil, a micronized PTFE thickener and an anti-corrosive additive (not sodium nitrate). It is totally inert physically & chemically in the presence of aggressive liquids or gases (except for fluorinated solvents) and thermal & ionising radiation. ZAROX TYA 511 is also compatible with all widely used elastomers, seals, gaskets, plastics & metals. Applications include: Bearing lubrication—sliding bearing or joints subject to high temperatures or aggressive conditions, curing ovens in glass, textile, plastic film, paint, chemical, nuclear, corrugated card & furnace applications, lubrication in thin films of sliding electrical contacts or as a dielectric agent.
Useful temperature range: -30 to 300°C
ZAROX TYA512 is a PFPE / PTFE grease that has been developed specifically for the lubrication bearings and components at extreme high temperatures and in harsh environments. It is based upon a very high viscosity, extremely thermally stable PFPE oil, thickened with high grade PTFE and with the addition of a special corrosion inhibitor. The product is totally non-toxic and includes only NSF H1 approved ingredients as required by the food industry. PFPE/PTFE greases have become the industry standard for the lubrication of critical high temperature bearings. The long life and exceptional stability of these greases allows maximum life with long periods between lubrication intervals. Zarox TYA512 can massively extend re-lubrication intervals over conventional greases and is available in a wide range of packs and sizes. The most popular pack is the 800g Grease cartridge but 10 & 35Kg kegs are also available.
ZAROX TYA512 has been specifically developed for the lubrication of bearings running at extreme high temperature and under heavy loads. The product is also ideal for applications requiring chemical resistance or resistance to solvents, acids or radiation. It is also completely compatible with plastics and elastomeric seal materials.
