Klüber Syntheso GLEP 1 is a special lubricating grease with EP additives, compatible with EPDM
– Special lubricating grease for the assembly and lifetime lubrication of elastomers
– Almost neutral towards most sliding material pairings like EPDM/metal or plastic
– Reduces friction and wear
SYNTHESO GLEP 1 is a special lubricant for a wide variety of applications with an almost neutral behaviour towards many elastomers (including EPDM) and plastics (except PC and ABS). SYNTHESO GLEP 1 can be used in a wide service temperature range and offers efficient protection against wear, good adhesion and resistance to water.
SYNTHESO GLEP has been designed for the lubrication of metal – metal; elastomer – metal, plastic – metal, plastic – plastic sliding material combinations. The product is typically used in the automotive industry as assembly grease for plain bearings, e.g. in brake and clutch systems for linear motion in contact with brake fluids DOT 3, 4 and 5.1. Application examples: guide bushes and bolts, EPDM and SBR seals, clutch master and slave cylinders, corrosion protection of brake pad supports in disc brake calipers, brake boosters and noise reduction in elastic axle bearings, seals of steering columns. In such applications, SYNTHESO GLEP 1 facilitates assembly and provides reliable lubrication. Due to its good resistance to EPDM elastomers, SYNTHESO GLEP 1 is mainly used in car brakes as it offers good advantages versus silicone greases, like better load-carrying capacity, good adhesion and compatibility with electric contacts.
SYNTHESO GLEP 1 can be applied by brush, spatula, grease gun or the usual central lubrication systems. A wear test should be carried out prior to using SYNTHESO GLEP 1 in context with aluminum or aluminum alloys under dynamically high load conditions. Owing to the many different elastomer and plastic compositions we recommend checking their compatibility prior to series application. The possibility of a change in colour is inherent in this product concept. It has, however, no influence on product performance.
