MAK Lubes ML253 EAL Wire Rope Grease is a game-changing solution to wire rope lubrication that combines superior performance with environmental responsibility. It has been specifically engineered with biodegradable, non-toxic natural and synthetic ester base oils in addition to a special calcium thickener to protect both your wire ropes and the environment. ML253 from MAK Lubes meets the stringent specifications required by the EPA’s Vessel General Permit (VGP) and its eco-friendly composition ensures you’re aligned with environmental regulations whilst contributing to a sustainable future.

This tacky, stringy grease offers exceptional penetration and coating protection for wire ropes exposed to severe environments, including salt water. Its proprietary technology ensures a long-lasting product with outstanding water resistance, excellent extreme pressure (E.P.) properties, and superior wear protection. ML253 is an adhesive grease that creates a water-resistant coating around the wire rope, effectively shielding it from rust and corrosion.
