Gulf Merit 46

Premium oil for pneumatic rock drill and tool lubrication

Gulf Merit series are premium quality oils specially developed for the lubrication of pneumatically operated rock drills and other air operated percussion tools. These oils are blended from high quality mineral oils and unique combination of superior film strength, tackiness and anti-wear additives. These oils provide excellent chemical stability and protection against wear, rust and corrosion. These oils have good adhesiveness and preferential metal wetting properties that maintain continuous oil film even in presence of water and thereby reduce the negative effects of water, condensed from moisture carried along with the air stream, on wear and corrosion. The combination of these properties along with superior EP characteristics help in providing excellent lubrication leading to long component life. They are available in five ISO viscosity grades viz. ISO VG 32, 46, 100, 150, 220 and 320.
