Slideway Oil

Product Description

RustX Slideway Oil is a premium, demulsible circulating oil developed for use on lathes and heavily loaded machine tool slideways. It is specially formulated to prevent stick-slip problems to ensure good surface finish on the machined part, and to provide quick and effective separation from water and metalworking fluids.

RustX Slide way Oil Lubricant is specially formulated to allow machine tool carriages to start easily and move smoothly throughout their travel, thus preventing stick-slip problems. This reduces carriage chatter and ensures a smooth finish on the machined part. Mild extreme-pressure properties prevent scoring of the slideways during carriage travel. A tackiness additive improves adhesion and prevents the oil from being squeezed off the slideways. It also helps prevent the oil from being washed away by cutting fluids. Additional proprietary additives provide protection against rust and corrosion and allow optimum separation from coolants and tramp oils.

RustX Slideway Oil is amber in color to allow easy visibility of machined parts.

Application Method

• Horizontal and vertical slideways on machine tools, such as lathes, planers, shapers, drilling machines, milling machines and screw machines

• Printing presses

• Lumber mill saw carriages

• Other applications that require a clear, tacky slideway oil


• Excellent anti-stick-slip performance

• Excellent coolant-separating properties

• Good surface finish

• Protects against scoring and wear

• Good adhesion for retention on slideways

• Protects against rust and corrosion

• Water-white in color for easy visibility
