Open Gear Lube

Open Gear Lube

Phillips 66® Open Gear Lube is an adhesive, residual compounded, extreme pressure (EP) gear lubricant with a low viscosity sacrificial diluent for ease of application. It is recommended primarily for the lubrication and cushioning of open and semi-enclosed gears on mining shovels, draglines and excavation equipment used in underground or surface mines and in rock quarries. It also may be used for the lubrication of some cable-actuated equipment.



  • Excellent adhesion to metal surfaces
  • Forms a heavy, tenacious film to lubricate and cushion gear teeth
  • Good extreme-pressure properties for protection under heavy or shock loads
  • Good resistance to water washout
  • Protects against rust and corrosion
  • Will not flake off at low temperatures
  • Does not contain any chlorine, lead or carcinogens
  • Easy application, by spraying, brushing or dripping
  • Suitable for use with automatic lubrication equipment


  • Open and semi-enclosed gears found on mining shovels, draglines and excavation equipment
  • Guides and sliding surfaces with large clearances, where asphaltic-type lubricants are specified
  • Cables on draglines, clamshells, hoists and other cable-operated equipment where cable clamp safety devices are not used
