Way Oils Vistac® are designed for use in the lubrication
of slides and ways of machine tools.

Way Oils Vistac ISO 220


Way Oils Vistac help provide extreme pressure and antiwear protection and have stringiness and oiliness characteristics. As indicated by part of the name, Vistac, these lubricants have an unusual adhesive or tacky quality.

Way Oils Vistac minimize leakage and adhere to metal surfaces providing a tenacious lubricant film.

Way Oils Vistac are formulated to meet the critical lubrication demands for the slides and ways of machine tools.

Their inherent low coefficient of static friction minimizes stick-slip or jerky motion of sliding parts on machine tools which maximize operating efficiency of the tools and promotes smooth overall operation.

Due to their adhesiveness, these oils form a tenacious film which resists being wiped away by the slowly moving parallel surfaces of the way or being washed away by cutting fluids.

Their antiwear and extreme pressure properties help protect the sliding surfaces.

These oils also help protect cast iron and bronze surfaces from rust and corrosion, and are resistant to oxidation to promote long lubricant life.


Way Oils Vistac have proven excellence in the lubrication of ways in many types of machine tools, e.g., lathes, planers, shapers, drilling and tapping machines, etc., including those operating at high loads.

These oils can also be used to lubricate bearings found in slides and ways of machine tools.

Their tacky quality makes these oils suitable for once- through applications, e.g., lubrication of chain drives.

If contamination with soluble oils is a problem, Way Lubricants are recommended.

Way Oils Vistac meet the requirements of:

  • MAG Cincinnati, Cincinnati Machine P-47 (ISO 68), P-50 (ISO 220) specifications for way lubricants

Way Oils Vistac are registered by NSF and are acceptable as a lubricant where there is no possibility of food contact (H2) in and around food processing areas. The NSF Nonfood Compounds Registration Program is a continuation of the USDA product approval and listing program, which is based on meeting regulatory requirements of appropriate use, ingredient review and labeling verification.
