PAD SLICK

SHAKER PAD LUBRICANT

No. 801

Applications

  • Shaker Head Slings of commercial nut harvesting machines equipped with standard manually lubricated heads

Pad Slick is a heavy duty Silicone lubricant specifically designed for lubricating the shaker head pads and slings on commercial nut harvesting machines equipped with conventional manually lubricated heads. This product is not affected by heat, and will maintain elasticity and pliability in rubber components.

PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS:

  • Pad Slick is convenient and easy to apply and will remain on the treated surface. This product is not affected by heat and will not run off leaving the contact area susceptible to blistering and cracking.
  • When used in this dusty and highly contaminated environment, Pad Slick will remain contaminant free and will not migrate to unwanted areas such as pillows, boom arms and other parts of the machine that need to remain contaminant free for ease of service.
  • Pad Slick is much easier and faster to apply than conventional grease type lubricants, contributing to much less wasted time re-lubricating. Customers indicate 20 to 30% more production time is achieved.
  • Pad Slick is not a petroleum and will not cause the swelling and blistering common with petroleum bases products.
  • Will reduce operating temperature 40F to 50F.
  • Pad and pillow life can be extended as much as 40% when using Pad Slick in place of conventional lubricants.
  • Costs as little as .88 per acre
  • Recommended by most tree shaker manufacturers
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:

Apply a light thin film using a spray unit such as a Sure Shot Sprayer and renew as needed.
