curtain sider lubricant

IKV Launch Lubricant for Curtain Sided Trailers & Load Restraint Systems

Our IKV MULTI-LUBE TF is a high technology special lubricating dispersion of PTFE added to a blend of synthetic base oils and a carrier fluid to aid penetration. It offers exceptional performance in specialised areas such as curtain sided truck runners, roller door guides to make side curtains slide freely, eliminates friction and dries tack-free so dust and dirt do not accumulate.

It also serves to reduce the force required by operators to open & close the curtains thereby helping to eliminate the potential for RSI (repetitive strain injury) where repeated operations are necessary.

IKV MULTI-LUBE TF also has high load carrying capacity & exceptional resistance to arduous conditions, weathering and contamination. IKV MULTI-LUBE TF contains a solvent carrier which ensures that it penetrates into the working area and inaccessible areas so is in effect a combined penetrant & lubricant. It also serves to break down corroded material and other deposits. The PTFE then forms a lubricating film that repels water, dust and other contaminants.

What is PTFE?

PTFE is a fluorocarbon solid which has one of the lowest coefficients of friction of any solid. Where used as a lubricant, PTFE reduces friction, wear and energy consumption of machinery.The PTFE dry film lubricant resists temperatures in excess of 250°C. It also has excellent inertness and significantly reduces the friction co-efficient between mating surfaces.


IKV MULTI-LUBE TF can be applied by brush, pump  spray or back pack sprayer with lance for larger applications & hard to reach areas. The material should be agitated by shaking or stirring before use.

IKV MULTI-LUBE TF is equally effective for:-

 

  • General lubrication
     
  • Chains
     
  • Cables
     
  • Hinges
     
  • Brake and Clutch pedals
     
  • Sunroof Mechanisms
     
  • Bonnet Catches
     
  • Seat Runners
     
  • Electric Aerials,
     
  • Runners on curtain-sided trucks
     
  • Gear-change Cables
     
It is non-toxic, non-corrosive and non-staining & can be utilised in any areas where a light lubricant or penetrant is required and following the introduction of VOSA (Vehicle Operator & Services Agency) and HSE (Health & Safety Executive) guidelines in 2012 addressing their concerns  that a significant number of vehicles containing loads were not sufficiently restrained, VOSA drafted a matrix distinguishing between various types of loads and has three categories of severity for assessing load securing.

The securing of loads is assessed against a matrix and may result in prohibition action where a high risk failure to secure adequately is identified. These regulations indicate that loads must be secured if necessary by physical restraint other than their own weight in order to protect drivers, other road users and to prevent damage to loads.

As a result various restraint systems are now available and these new restraining and containment systems require lubrication for effective operation. We also have a range of PTFE based aerosols which can be used for  convenient application in a simple to use and efficient package.

NSF 3H lubricants for food transportation

New NSF 3H lubricant for refrigerated food vehicles takes UK market by storm!

IKV Lubricants has been a leader in the field of high performance lubricants for many years & has met the increasing demands for tribological products that meet the requirements of the industries OEM’s.

Choosing lubricants for use within food and pharmaceutical processing, manufacturing and transportation poses several problems to the engineer, firstly the products must be totally non-toxic and satisfy the regulations for non food compounds used in food production.

These strict guidelines mean products are selected based upon their use/classification with either incidental food contact USDA H1 (now NSF H1) or direct food contact (NSF 3H). Secondly they must perform well as lubricants, often extreme high or low temperatures or aggressive cleaning processes are encountered, all of which can adversely effect the life of the lubricant.

DENSOLINA RVT is our NSF 3H range of oils which is intended for the lubrication of any mechanism - it has good lubricity and adherence. It has NSF 3H (direct food contact) registration and is suitable for use in industrial transportation applications where incidental or direct human or animal food contact is possible.  

DENSOLINA is intended for the general lubrication on any mechanism requiring a stainless, medium viscosity, food grade product that will not contaminate.  It also offers exceptional performance in many areas to make runners slide freely, eliminate friction and it dries tack-free so dust and dirt do not accumulate.


DENSOLINA oil  can be applied by brush, pump  spray or back pack sprayer with lance for larger applications & hard to reach areas.

The DENSOLINA products are effective for:-

 

  • General vehicular lubrication
     
  • Chains
     
  • Cables
     
  • Hinges
     
  • Brake and Clutch pedals
     
  • Sunroof Mechanisms
     
  • Bonnet Catches
     
  • Seat Runners
     
  • Electric Aerials,
     
  • Runners on curtain-sided trailers
     
  • Gear-change cables
     
  • Vehicle load restraint & containment systems
     

It is non-toxic, non-corrosive and non-staining & can be utilised in any areas where a light lubricant or penetrant is required.

We also have a range of NSF 3H approved aerosols (including DENSOLINA RVT-H 335ml spray) which can be used for  convenient application in a simple to use and efficient package. DENSOLINA is available in various viscosities —ask for DENSOLINA RVT-H or DENSOLINA RVT-M.
