PROCESSING: Wire rope lubricator or brush / roller / wool glove

FLUID FILM WRN-EP – Manufactured on a wool grease-based, solvent-free preservative provides high-quality corrosion protection that can withstand difficult climatic and mechanical conditions. It contains anti-aging agents, antioxidants, inhibitors, wetting agents and additives to increase lubricating compressive strength.


FLUID FILM WRN-EP is a wire rope grease and is therefore preferably used in shipping (loading harness, RoRo systems, lifeboats), in crane systems (construction cranes, port facilities), cable cars, elevators, ski lifts but also in washing systems for railway wagons. In addition, thanks to its excellent lubricating properties, it can be used on open gearboxes, for cables, bolts and screw connections.

Due to the very high viscosity, this product can only be used to a limited extent as a top coat, but as a strong film-forming material, it is ideally suited as a top coat for sealing and enveloping the rope spandrels and individual wires. We recommend FLUID FILM Liquid A or WRL as a base coat.

Surface Preparation

In case of new wire ropes, the surface should be largely freed from the stranding agent before FLUID FILM WRN-EP is applied. The stranding agent need not be removed from the spandrels between the individual wires.

If well-adhering old coatings are to be retained on used ropes, they must be examined for their functionality; these include, in particular, the adhesion as well as the degree of underrusting and infiltration by water. Before applying the top coat, foreign layers (impurities) must be removed. Damaged areas must be mechanically derusted, at least to the standard purity grade St 1 according to SIS (loose rust), and applied with a base coat. Poorly adhering parts of old coatings should be removed by brushing or with the help of the MASTO wire rope lubrication device.

Apply with hard brushes, rags, sheep’s wool gloves or leather cones. For long-term protection, a target layer thickness of the top coat of at least 800 μm is required. However, the material can be applied up to 3 mm, whereby it still has a high mechanical strength and a high adhesion. The most effective way to inject it is with the MASTO wire rope lubrication device.
