High Temperature Drill Rod Grease
Lith-plex RGM-2 is a special grease designed to provide protection against corrosion and metal to metal contact in diamond tip drill rods employed in rock drilling applications, particularly where high temperatures and high loads are encountered.
Lith-plex RGM-2 formulation consists of a high temperature lithium complex soap thickener together with Molybdenum Disulphide (Moly), Graphite and Zinc Oxide anti-seize powders that impart exceptionally high temperature, anti-seize properties. It also contains performance enhancing additives to protect against water washout, oxidation and corrosion.
The state-of-the-art equipment and procedures employed to manufacture Lith-plex RGM-2 impart to this product a high degree of mechanical and storage stability. It will not breakdown under high mechanical stress. In storage it will not alter consistency or release oil.
Lith-plex RGM-2 is recommended specifically for rock drilling operations but is also suitable as an anti-seize grease or lubricant in various applications where such a product is beneficial, for example very high temperatures, high loads or where corrosion, water ingress or sealing present problems. These include:-
Thread coating/lubricant for industrial ovens, furnaces and boilers
Lubricant and corrosion preventative for acidic, alkaline or saline operating conditions
Anti-seize compound for feed and adjusting screws, linkages and drive chains on earth moving and agricultural equipment
Suitable for severe rock drilling operations
Protection against seizure caused by high temperatures and corrosion
Variety of anti-seize applications
Excellent mechanical stability
Excellent resistance to water washout
Effective in harsh acid, alkaline and salt conditions
Outstanding storage stability
