Royal Purple Open Gear Guard XP
Open Gear Guard XP is designed to lubricate open gears and chains subjected to heavy loads in dusty or dirty environments. A thixotrophic lubricant blended with a solvent carrier, it’s easily applied by spraying or brushing and can effectively lubricate at temperatures up to 400 F. Once applied, the carrier film evaporates, leaving a dry, wax-like lubricating film that minimizes collection of dust and other contaminants. The film consists of calcium carbonate and calcium sulfate, both naturally occurring minerals.
