Castrol Tribol SW 1066 (Previously called Tribol 1066) is a high performance slide and way lubricant. Tribol SW1066 was developed specifically to lubricate the slides and ways of modern metalworking machine tools used in highprecision, high volumemanufacturing.Demands for increased production have led to the design of higher and higher speed machines. Increased operatingspeeds have also spawned new metal removal fluids and coolants which are highly surface active to increase thespeed of tool wetting and the removal of heat.The surfactant additives used in these modern coolants have a detergent and cleansing action on oil and can rapidlydisplace lubricants used to protect slides and ways.Tribol SW 1066 is manufactured with the highest quality base oils and additives available. The base oils are highlyrefined paraffinic base stocks with high Vis. They were selected for their ability to sustain a lubricating film despitesudden changes in load or shearing forces. The formulation includes select polymer additives for both adhesive andcohesive characteristics.A carefully balanced treat rate of rust and oxidation inhibitors offers maximum rust protection for parts and long servicelife from the oil. Tribol SW 1066 is not corrosive to ferrous or nonferrous metals.
Tribol SW 1066 was developed primarily to lubricate modern machine tools. The special formulation of Tribol SW 1066resists the cleansing action of surface-active coolants so that wear on the slides and ways is minimized and motion issmooth and accurate. Interaction between the metalworking fluid and slideway lubricant can result in lowermetalworking fluid performance and reduced fluid life. Tribol SW 1066 was specifically developed to be nonemulsifyingwith water, synthetic and semi-synthetic metal removal fluids. It rapidly pops out of these fluids as free tramp oil withoutremoval of the fluid.s additives. This is achieved without the use of demulsifiers or surfactants that can affect the stabilityof the coolants. This permits servicing of the metal removal fluids using conventional weiring or skimming techniques.With the Tribol SW 1066, positive lubrication can be achieved to control wear and promote machining accuracy withoutexcessive reapplication or high lubricant consumption.
