High Temperature Chain Lubricants

Mercury offers a wide range of high temperature chain  lubricants They all have the ability not to create residues in the chain links at operating temperatures above 140 °C is important for the performance of the chain. Using a lubricant which is not suitable for high temperatures will result in residues in the vital parts of the chains.


Chainlube Moly Rvn no : 1

Fully synthetic high temperature chain oil with added MoS2

Chainlube Moly evaporates extremely slow even at temperatures ranging from 200 °C up to 260 °C. Excellent resistance to oxidation provides an exceptional stability at very high temperatures and enables the formation of heavy coking residue to be avoided at temperatures up to 280 °C (short periods up to 300 °C). Provided with anti wear and EP properties, reinforced by a combination of molybdenum disulphide based solids.
Chainlube Moly is an oil which is specially developed for the lubrication of chains and bearings of systems operating at continuous temperatures between
170 °C and 280 °C (short periods up to
300 °C) and is particularly recommended for:

  • Chains of dryers for plasterboard, glasswool, etc.
  • Chains and rollers of overhead conveyors
  • Textile tenter frames
  • Drying machines
  • Bakery ovens and on paint stoving chains


  • Long wet film life at high temperatures
  • Does not form hard carbon deposits
  • Good load and anti-wear properties
  • Miscible with most ester based fluids
