Wirerope Oil

Wirerope Oil is a compounded mineral base oil fortified with additive agents, asphalts and non-flammable solvent for easy application and better penetration into the wire rope core. Wirerope Oil performs well in harsh open environmental conditions and to provide both internal and external protection against corrosion caused by wet, adverse weather conditions and sea water. The oils provide necessary lubricating anti-wear, anti-rust, anti-oxidation properties and exhibit good adhesives. A well-lubricated penetrating wire rope lubricant effectively acts as an oil change for wire ropes.


  • Good lubricity
  • Reduce wear on wires and strands
  • Protect wires against rust and corrosion in open environment
  • Form a thin protective film coating to prevent surface from contact with dust and moisture
  • Strong adhesiveness
  • Easy application by dipping or brushing

These characteristics are typical of current production. Whilst future production will conform to Swee Joo’s specification, variations in these characteristics may occur.


ROCKY WIRE ROPE OILS is specially formulated to provide excellent protection to rope strands via deep penetrating lubrication to wire core. These lubricants are designed to lubricate the interface between the wire strands to reduce frictions cause by metal to metal contact, therefore increasing the service life of the wire. The oils can also be used for lubricating part of low speed, medium- to heavy-duty industrial open gear box. Suitable for dragline excavators, ship crane ropes, elevators, shovels, drilling rigs, hoist and mobile cranes.


For best results, Wire Rope Lubricant should be applied to clean ropes to ensure complete penetration. Use wire brushes, a scraper, compressed air or superheated steam to clean the ropes of previous lubricant, before applying the wire rope lubricant. Old layers of lubricant and dirt may need to be removed from the rope by using a suitable solvent.
