The blend of additives and tackifiers in K Nate grease is said to make the lubricant demonstrably more effective than leading greases in use across industrial sectors such as mining, construction, paper and pulp, steel mills and automotive manufacture, marine and agriculture.
K Nate is said to be denser and tackier than other greases as a result of adhesive polymers that allow K Nate to stick to metal surfaces and cohesive polymers that cause the grease to adhere to itself. When subjected to repeated heavy load shock most greases are squeezed out or moved, K Nate is claimed to stay in place, resists excessive wear and has a weld load in excess of 800kg on a four ball machine.
In addition, K Nate has a melting point of over 290°C, meaning that it can protect the components it is lubricating from excessive heat while retaining its lubricating properties.
K Nate’s calcium sulphonate base is naturally water resistant. As a result, NCH Europe’s K Nate product scores 0.5% in a water washout test, compared to 10% in standard grease products, and continues to perform unaffected by the introduction of moisture.
