Dayton Progress Grease Now Available for Higher Volume Applications

Dayton Progress Corp., Dayton, Ohio, will now sell its high-performance grease DAYLube in 1- and 5-gallon buckets. These larger containers are ideal for higher volume applications such as conveyors, gears, and lifters.

DAYLube uses nanoceramic particles that act as sub-microscopic ball bearings to provide continuous lubrication to steel surfaces.  With a lower coefficient of friction than traditional PTFE greases, chemically inert DAYLube is also environmentally friendly.  It maintains its viscosity across full temperature range and is NSF-H1 Food Grade Certified. 

DAYLube operates in temperature ranges from -40°F to 800°F, and the nanoceramic particles remain intact to 2500°F.  The grease product underwent the ASTME 4-ball weld test with no weld and minimal damage to all ball 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 ten times longer, than traditional PTFE lubricants," said Bob Hedrick, marketing communications manager.  "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."

In addition to the new 1- and 5-gallon pails, DAYLube is available in 16-ounce tubes and 16-ounce jars, as well as cases of 12 jars or tubes.
