Tacky Grease Resists Water, Protects Moving Parts

453-451 Almasol Wirelife Coating Grease Product-Info Wirelife® Almasol® Coating Grease is a soft, semifluid formulation designed to coat wire rope as well as moving chain and cable parts to ensure long life and smooth, quiet operation. Its tacky, water-resistant characteristics enable it to adhere strongly to rapidly moving parts and to seal out damaging moisture. Available in three NLGI grades, Wirelife Almasol Coating Grease contains Almasol®, LE’s exclusive wear-reducing proprietary additive that protects against premature wear and shields metal against corrosive attack.

Almasol® wear-reducing additive attaches itself to metal surfaces in a single microscopic layer, yet will not build on itself or affect clearances. It possesses tremendous load-carrying capacity, is impervious to acid attack and minimizes metal-to-metal contact and the resulting friction and wear. When added to LE lubricants, it provides a level of protection available with no other lubricant.

Beneficial Qualities

Wear Reduction & Corrosion Protection

  • Lubricates and reduces wear to wire rope and to all moving parts, including chains (links, pins, bushings) and cables (sheave bushings and bearings, cable strands)
  • Protects wear-intensive areas such as chain sprockets and cable sheaves
  • Lessens resistance when surfaces slide over one another, ensuring cooler operation
  • Seals all surfaces, protecting against rust and corrosion
  • Shields against acid attack

Tackiness & Water Resistance

  • Clings tightly to pin, bushing or bearing surfaces
  • Stays in place in presence of steam and moisture for long service life
  • Increases service intervals, requiring less lubricant to be used

Smooth, Quiet Operation

  • Enables metal joints and strands to move freely
  • Softens shocks with its full-bodied, semifluid properties


  • Excellent for wire rope, cables, open or enclosed silent chains and roller chains, as well as chain links, pins, bushings and cable sheave bearings
  • Also works great for small, slowturning gearboxes in which operating temperatures are relatively low (less than 71°C/160°F) and a semifluid grease is required
  • Meets USDA H2 criteria for nonfood contact areas of food processing

Available Grades

  • NLGI 0 (453)
  • NLGI 00 (452)
  • NLGI 000 (451)

Typical Applications

  • Wire rope
  • Chain links
  • Pins
  • Bushings
  • Cable sheave bushings
  • Cables
  • Open and closed silent and roller chains
  • Small, slow-turning gearboxes that require a semifluid lubricant
