Rail Lubricants

BioRail®

BioRail® EP and LF biodegradable rail curve lubricants, prove that you don't have to compromise performance in order to be environmentally responsible. BioRail has proven itself, not only in the laboratory, but where it counts - on the rail. Its stable chemistry ensures that it pumps in the coldest climates and stands up at the wiping bar in all weather conditions. This lubricant provides outstanding gauge-face lubrication on rail curves.

BioRail LF passes the Modified MITI (OECD 301C) test for ready biodegradability.

BioSwitch™

BioSwitch™ is a biodegradable and clean switch plate oil that protects switch plates from wear. BioSwitch™ has the advantage of being non-staining to hands and clothing. Pourable and sprayable.

  • Product: BioSwitch™
  • Type: Switch Plate Lubricant
  • Base material: Synthetic Oil
  • Packaging: Pail, Kegs, Drums, Non-returnable Totes, Bulk

EZ Switch®

Offering a tough, durable, long-lasting shield of protection, EZ Switch® coats the switch plate and reduces wear. As the switch operates, the coating becomes denser in the contact area, enhancing wear protection. EZ Switch can be applied to wet switches and resists rain; this lubricant becomes more resistant to rain as it dries.

  • Product: EZ Switch®
  • Type: Switch Plate Lubricant
  • Grade: Lighter than 000
  • Base material: Fluid w/ Graphite, Bentone
  • Packaging: Pails, Kegs, Drums, Shuttle Tanks, Nonreturnable Totes

RailArmor® EP

RailArmor® EP, a high performance rail curve lubricant provides superior protection that extends rail and wheel life and reduces consumption costs. This lubricant raises the bar in critical performance areas, such as rail adhesion, rain resistance, wear protection and carry down from the wiping bar; consumption can be reduced as much as 50%.

  • Product: RailArmor® EP
  • Type: Rail Curve Grease
  • Grade: EP 1 Winter, 1, 1.5, 2, 1 Summer
  • Base material: Lithium
  • Packaging: Pails w/Liners, Kegs, Drums, Shuttle Tanks, Nonreturnable Totes

Railmaster® LF

Railmaster® LF is a premium, high performance rail curve grease. It has proven itself in the field as a cost saver to the Rail Industry by doing what rail curve grease is supposed to do. It coats the gage face and protects from wear. Railmaster LP contains molybdenum disulfide to meet the BNSF specification.

  • Product: Railmaster® LF
  • Type: Rail Grease w/ MoS2
  • Grade: NLGI 0 LT, 0, 1 LT, 1, 1.5, 2
  • Base material: Lithium with MoS2
  • Packaging: Pails, Kegs, Drums, Shuttle Tanks

Railmaster® LFG

Railmaster® LFG gives maximum protection to rails and wheel flanges. It is a high performance rail curve grease that contains high grade graphite instead of molybdenum disulfide for economy without loss of performance.

  • Product: Railmaster® LFG
  • Type: Rail Grease
  • Grade: NLGI 0 LT, 0, 1 LT, 1, 1.5, 2
  • Base material: Lithium w/ Graphite
  • Packaging: Pails, Kegs, Drums, Shuttle Tanks

Trackmate™

Trackmate® is a economical rail curve grease compatible with automated railroad lubrication systems. It is resistant to water wash off and provides good adhesion.

  • Product: Trackmate™
  • Type: Rail Curve Lubricant
  • Grade: EP 0 LT, 1 LT, 0, 1, 1.5, 2
  • Base material: Lithium
  • Packaging: Pails, Kegs, Drums, Shuttle Tanks, Nonreturnable Totes

Whitmore® FSL - Flange Stick Lubricant

During normal rolling, FSL - Flange Stick Lubricant transfers from the wheel flange to the gauge face/corner and lubricates both surfaces. It reduces the coefficient of friction to as low as 0.10. The result is a substantial reduction in wear on the gauge face, gauge corner, and the wheel flange. Usage FSL - Flange Stick Lubricant can be utilized alone or on a dual bracket with the TSFM - Tread Stick Friction Modifier. The products are typically applied with spring-loaded applicators that prevent cross-contamination.

Standard consumption is approximately 1 inch (25mm) per 1500 miles (2400km).

Whitmore® TSFM - Tread Stick Friction Modifier

During normal rolling, TSFM - Tread Stick Friction Modifier acts as a lubricant. However, when wheel creep occurs, the sliding friction immediately converts to “positive friction,” reaching a friction level of approximately 0.18 - 0.42 between the wheel tread and top of rail. This consequently controls the creep condition and returns the wheels to a healthy rolling motion.

The result is a substantial reduction in creep forces, which reduces corrugations and high-frequency squealing. Standard consumption is approximately 1 inch (25mm) per 2500 miles (4000km).
