Penetrating oil and Lubricants are essential for ensuring the smooth and safe operation of plant machinery and mechanical parts. As a low-viscosity lubricant, it’s ideal for penetrating mechanical parts and machinery common within a typical plant.
Over the counter penetrating oil solutions should not be used for specific industrial applications because these oils tends to be highly volatile. Purpose-designed penetrating oil and lubricant products are ideal for lubricating chains, pneumatics, plastics, and wire ropes. Moreover, selecting the correct lubricant can yield an improvement in the reliability of machinery as well as lowering the operating cost.

Industrial plant equipment,/b> and machinery is not only critical to the operation of your business, but it’s also a big investment that deserves the utmost of care. Keeping industrial equipment running smoothly and safely requires proper maintenance and repair components, including penetrating oil and lubricants.
Cotter Marketing has exclusive rights within Ireland to distribute high-quality products from various industry-leading brands such as Chesterton. It’s important to use specialised lubricating oil products made for their intended purpose, so don’t skimp on quality and risk the operation of your machinery with multi-purpose lubricants that aren’t designed for industrial plant equipment.
Here are some various penetrating oil reviews to provide you an idea of what we offer our clients:
The 388 Synthetic Tapping Fluid is a synthetic formula that’s ideal for high machinery speeds, including manual and automatic cutting applications. This lubricant can be applied to the following types of machinery: tapping, boring, reaving, threading, drilling, and milling. Its advantages are:
For metal cutting and forming, the 390 Cutting Oil is a great oil-based lubricant for heavy-duty machinery performing: broaching, boring, drilling, sawing, reaming, milling, tapping, and countersinking. Its advantages are:
If you’re trying to get into hard-to-reach areas to remove nuts, bolts, and fittings, opt for an aerosol canister such as the 723 Sprasolvo Penetrating Oil. This co2, aerosol-based penetrating oil works great in confined spaces that may be cluttered with dirt, rust, tar, and grease. It can be used on all corroded and threaded assemblies. Its advantages are:
Although not a penetrating oil, the 800 GoldEnd Tape by Chesterton helps keep machinery running safely and efficiently by providing a heavy-duty, tight seal around metal and plastic threads and bolts. It’s resistant to tearing and made of PTFE, making it an ideal choice for sealing even under more extreme conditions. Its advantages are:
It’s important to differentiate between household and automotive-grade penetrating oils, which can be applied to multi-purpose applications safely, and industrial lubricants, which are better suited for heavy-duty use and conditions under which a specialised product can be safely applied.
Industrial machinery can operate at extremely high speeds, under extreme temperatures, and for longer periods of continuous use than bicycle gears or a squeaky patio door, for example. The best penetrating oil for your plant operations is one that’s safe to use and uses synthetic or oil-based lubrication designed for your specific application. This will ensure that your machinery operates efficiently for years to come.
No. Using over the counter products from your hardware store is not advised for heavy-duty industrial plant equipment, because industrial machinery needs to meet far more demanding usage and as such specialised penetrating oil products are recommended.
It depends on the formulation, but many penetrating fluids not only help you to break apart obstructions to rusted bolts and seals, but will also leave behind a residue which acts to prevent the buildup of rust in the future.
All-purpose penetrating fluids are relatively volatile. Consequently, the penetrating oil will evaporate quickly and leave behind less lubrication.
Yes. Even the best penetrating oil products have a flashpoint and can become flammable upon reaching said flashpoint. Higher quality products may use formulations that are better at dissipating heat and thus have a higher flashpoint.
Always ensure that you’re using a penetrating oil that’s suitable for use on your industrial machinery, as some products have a much lower flashpoint than tolerable for heavy-duty use.
