New DAYLube Nano-Ceramic Grease

Press Release
Thursday, January 24, 2013

New DAYLube Nano-Ceramic Grease is Ideal for Marine Applications Provides Greater Friction Resistance than Traditional PTFE Greases.
 

New DAYLube high performance grease uses nanoceramic particles which act as sub-microscopic ball bearings to provide continuous lubrication to steel surfaces found on workboats, portside cranes and materials handling equipment, and other marine uses.  With a much lower coefficient of friction at all temperatures than traditional PTFE greases, chemically inert DAYLube is also environmentally friendly.  It maintains its viscosity across the full temperature range and does not soften or run out - after 100,000 production strokes it shows no evidence of breaking down.  Extraordinary adhesion extends production up to 10-times that of other greases.  This proven nanoceramic lubricating grease provides unparalleled friction reduction and wear resistance, making it ideal for workboats of all sizes and classifications, as well as port-side material handling equipment like cranes, lift trucks, conveyors, and more.    



DAYLube operates in temperature ranges from -40°F to 800°F – and the nanoceramic particles remain intact to 2500°F.  It survived the ASTME 4-ball weld test with no weld and minimal damage to all ball bearings.  Competitive brands, on the other hand, produced a soft weld after 2 seconds and complete failure and major damage to all bearings.



DAYLube has high load-bearing properties, a low dielectric constant, does not contain metal or silicone and is resistant to steam, acids, and most chemical products.  



“Customers using DAYLube report significantly longer service life – up to 10-times longer – than traditional PTFE lubricants” said Dayton Progress Marketing Manager Brian Marsh.  “Even when compared to nanotechnology products, DAYLube has a lower cost per ounce.  When considering all factors there is not a better lubricating value than DAYLube”



DAYLube is available in 16-ounce tubes and 16-ounce jars, gallon and five gallon containers.  In addition to trucking and fleet operations, industries benefiting from the use of DAYLube include construction and earthmoving equipment, landscape contracting equipment, agricultural, automotive, aerospace, industrial machinery, general manufacturing, marine, material handling, stamping & fabricating, and more.



Dayton Progress has a “global footprint” with manufacturing and engineering facilities in North America, Europe and the Pacific Rim.  In addition to experienced sales, engineering, and manufacturing personnel, their products are sold through a network of 150 independent distributors – many who have been Dayton Progress’ business partners for many years.
