  • Pint BALL-LUBE™ spray # ARL0161
  • Gallon BALL-LUBE™ # ARL1281

Self-Lubricating Style Bushings or Wear Plates with Oil Impregnated Graphite Plugs

Recommended Lubrication

  • Light 20 wt. oil should be applied to pre-lube the wear surface of the bushing.

Notes

  • When bushing reaches 80-90 degrees F° because of friction between the components, oil is drawn from the plug thus lubricating the wear surface.

NEVER USE GREASE with the Self-Lubricating oil impregnated graphite plug products. Grease on the oil impregnated graphite plugs will prevent the self-lubricating process.

Recommended Lubrication

  • Quart # 9-01-52
  • Gallon # 9-02-52
  • (15) Gallons # 9-02-522
  • (55) Gallons # 9-02-521

Notes

  • Above die lubricant is specially prepared to provide efficient lubrication for guide post in plain bearing applications.
