Optimal wire rope lubrication

Optimal wire rope lubrication for all types and under all conditions

Van Meeuwen speaks from experience. Leading companies in the marine, offshore, dredging, port, lifting and crane sectors make frequent use of Van Meeuwen’s wire rope lubricants under the most diverse operating conditions. From hoisting and pulling to stationary applications, with oils and greases which are environmentally acceptable or non-toxic and can be used under water, under high loads or in dusty conditions:

For hoisting and towing

  • Immediately penetrate to the core
  • Offer optimal protection against wear and corrosion
  • EU Ecolabel certified
  • No accumulation on the wire rope sheaves due to good penetration and adhesion
  • Transparent and therefore easy to inspect
  • Impermeable to water and cannot wash off
  • Do not adhere sand, dirt or dust
  • Due to water displacement properties also applicable on wet cables
  • Spray, brush or lubricator applicable


For rust-sensitive dusty conditions

  • Prevent wear due to a very strong lubricating film
  • Penetrate to the inside of the cable
  • Do not adhere dirt and prevents corrosion
  • Displace water and dissolve rust
  • Clean metal surfaces and repel dirt at the same time
  • Even with heavy loads
  • Applicable by spraying


For severe outdoor environments

  • With a full scope of penetrating, lubrication and protection whilst being environmental friendly
  • Specially formulated as an EAL, EPA 2013 VGP (Vessel General Permit)
  • EU Ecolabel certified
  • To operate in severe outdoor environments
  • To withstand corrosion in high performance industrial applications where environmental exposure is a cause for concern
  • Applicable in a wide range of temperatures
  • Extreme mechanical and oxidative stable
  • Highly water resistant
  • Providing a long lifetime
  • Applicable by lubricator or brush
