Dual Guard 18 is a high performance multi-function lubricant that can be added to almost any petroleum lubricating oil. Hydraulic fluids, transmission fluids, gear oils, motor oils, all can be conditioned with Dual Guard 18. Dual Guard 18 improves a lubricant’s film strength and offers vastly improved lubricity. Dual Guard 18 improves viscosity, neutralizes acids, cleans, and provides superior lubricant protection for engines, transmissions, gears, and hydraulics.
Dual Guard’s unique one of a kind formulation utilizes a proprietary chemistry that improves the viscosity of the lubricant that it is added to, thus helping to minimize or eliminate metal-to-metal contact. Adding this performance booster to standard or traditional industrial oils, you are allowing all metal surfaces and bearings to receive important extra lubricant protection. The superior lubricant chemistry of Dual Guard 18 will help your heavy equipment to last longer and will help in the reduction of downtime. How does Dual Guard 18 boost viscosity in standard or traditional level industrial oils? The secret is in the use of an extremely high performing, high quality polymer. This polymer is so small, it can only be seen under a laboratory microscope, yet this tiny polymer is truly a superhero when it comes to viscosity improvement performance. Think of this unique polymer as a tightly wound coil during cold temperatures, which allows the lubricant to flow more rapidly. When the temperature becomes hot this super polymer uncoils which hinders the lubricants molecules more, thus causing less viscosity thinning. Keeping these two situations in mind, when the oil’s viscosity is less thickening at cold temperatures and under hot temperatures the oil’s viscosity is less thinning, then in these two operating situations the lubricant maintains more required or desirable characteristics. Free flowing under cold temperatures, less thinning under extreme hot temperatures.
For motors, transmissions, gears, and hydraulics
Generally speaking, Dual Guard 18 helps engines, transmissions, gears, and hydraulics to perform better and run cooler. When adding Dual Guard 18 to engine crankcase motor oils, you can expect a reduction in oil consumption, better piston ring sealing, improved combustion, and reduced blow-by. When considering how much Dual Guard 18 to add to motor oils, you can consider using ratios of 2.5% all the way up to 10% Dual Guard 18. Hydraulic systems can greatly benefit through the use of Dual Guard 18. It makes a standard hydraulic oil perform like a high performance lubricant. When adding Dual Guard 18 to a hydraulic system, you can expect this unique lubricant to gently remove any tarnish or deposits from a control valve, thus improving any spongy performance issues. Adding Dual Guard 18 to a gear box will help in providing superior performance by reducing temperatures through the reduction of friction. This leads to cooler running temperatures and reduced parts wear.
Helps to neutralize acids
Dual Guard 18 will help fight against wear caused by corrosive acids which are formed by the combustion of fossil fuels. Dual Guard is a TBN booster. This is another example of the superior chemistry utilized in this helpful lubricant. It stands apart from any other competitive product on the market. When you add Dual Guard 18, you are boosting your lubricant’s ability to neutralize harmful acids, thereby reducing wear.
Varnish and sludge are troublesome enemies for engines, transmissions, gears, and hydraulic systems. By adding Dual Guard 18, you will turn standard lubricants into cleaning champions. If we consider adding between 1-5% Dual Guard 18 to a hydraulic oil system, you have now helped your hydraulic lubricant to have the ability to easily get rid of sludge deposits from your hydraulic system. This will improve any sluggish performance caused by varnish or sludge deposits. Adding Dual Guard 18 to a gear or transmission system, you can now expect bearings to become cleaner, thus promoting much better lubrication for the bearings. Adding Dual Guard 18 to any standard motor oil will now allow gentle cleaning of piston ring deposits. This will lead to a reduction in oil consumption. In addition, Dual Guard 18 helps improve compression and reduced piston scuffing.
Helps provide increased protection
The best time to add Dual Guard 18 is when the equipment oil is warm. Once added, it is best to run the machinery right after adding Dual Guard in the oil. By doing this, Dual Guard is then thoroughly mixed into your system’s oil. Also by running Dual Guard immediately, you provide the best chance that all parts will be completely coated with Dual Guard’s superior additive chemistry. When machinery has been completely coated with a film of Dual Guard 18, you can expect complete protection of lubricated parts when your equipment sits idle. With this Dual Guard 18 layer of protection, you can be sure that the parts will not become corroded or rusted due to moisture or any residual acids while idle. Please note, if additional Dual Guard 18 is required for whatever the reason, you can add more to warm oil provided you don’t exceed a total of 10% in motor oils or a total of 5% in Dual Guard in hydraulic, gear, and transmission systems.
