The CGV-900 offers built-in compliance, allowing the unit to compensate for irregularities in part surfaces and maintain contact with a workpiece. The compliance force is adjustable, so users can fine-tune finishing processes in real time.

DayLube nanoceramic grease extends maintenance intervals for operations in many different industries and it provides greater friction resistance than PTFE greases

Grease Extends Maintenance Intervals

March 30, 2013
Lower coefficient of friction than PTFE greases Temp. ranges from -40° to 800°F

The DayLube high-performance nano-ceramic grease introduced by DAYTON PROGRESS reportedly maintains its original viscosity and adhesion even after 100,000 production strokes – significantly extending service intervals for all types of production equipment. Nano-ceramic particles act as sub-microscopic ball bearings to provide continuous lubrication to steel surfaces, allowing DayLube to last 10-times longer than other greases. With a lower coefficient of friction at all temperatures than traditional PTFE greases, chemically inert DayLube is also environmentally friendly. It maintains its viscosity across full temperature range.

DayLube provides unparalleled friction reduction and wear resistance, making it ideal for a wide range of industrial applications such as the protection of bearings, bushings cables, cams, chains, conveyors, gears, lifters, machine parts, robotics, slides, wear plates and more.

DayLube operates in temperature ranges from -40° to 800°F – and the nanoceramic particles remain intact to 2,500°F. It survived the ASTME 4-ball weld test with no weld and minimal damage to all ball bearings. Competitive brands, on the other hand, produced a soft weld after 2 seconds and complete failure and major damage to all bearings.

DayLube has high load-bearing properties, a low dielectric constant, does not contain metal or silicone, and it is resistant to steam, acids, and most chemical products.

“Customers using DayLube report significantly longer service life – up to 10-times longer – than traditional PTFE lubricants,” stated Brian Marsh, of Dayton Progress. “Even when compared to nanotechnology products, DayLube has a lower cost per ounce. When considering all factors there is not a better lubricating value than DayLube ”
