Discover the advantages of our chain lubrication technology!
Tests show that relubrication with Interflon extends the service life of chains. That’s because our lubricants have superior penetration power for getting deep into the chain joint. Thanks to the addition of MicPol® technology, Interflon products provide better and longer lubrication inside the links. They also repel moisture and abrasive contaminants, reducing wear and keeping the chains much cleaner.
As a result, Interflon chain lubricants:
- Extend the service life of chains
- Extend the lubrication intervals
- Repel dirt and moisture
- Reduce corrosion
- Provide better damping
Select the right product for your chains
From drive chains to hoisting and conveyor chains bearing the heaviest loads in mining, steel manufacturing or food safety environments, Interflon always has an appropriate lubricant. Select one of the following lubricants based on the environment in your business:
Chains bearing light to medium loads:
For the lubrication of chains with links of around 1 inch (25.4 mm), you might select Interflon Lube TF. For heavier loads: Interflon Lube EP. Both products are available in various bulk packaging sizes and as aerosols.
Do you work according to work food safety standards or HACCP?
For food industry applications, we advising using the dry lubricant Interflon Food Lube. If the size of your links exceeds 1 inch, the bearing pressure will probably exceed 25 kg/ mm². Or perhaps you want automatic lubrication. In that case, too, we advise using Interflon Food Lube G.
Extremely heavy load?
We have chain lubricants for extremely heavy loads of up to 125 kg/mm², as well as special chain lubricants for temperatures from -25°C to +230°C.

The Challenge This plant uses glass jars as packaging. They were experiencing high wear of their clip-on conveyor chain, which was a 1/2" chain with guide blocks. They were using only water as a lubricant, which caused huge amount of corrosion, not to...read more
The Challenge A conveyor belt that carried rocks to a crusher failed frequently. This was due to high friction and heavy wear. Use of a viscous lubricant caused sand and rock dust to adhere to the chain, resulting in the formation of an abrasive paste....read more
