HeadLub ®

Top-of-the-rail conditioner against rail squeak on bends.

HeadLub is a high-pressure lubricant compound containing selected, chemically treated, solid lubricants. Through its affinity (tendency) and ionic carrier agent, it accelerates the surface smoothing of the „soft-metal pairings“ between the top of the rail and the wheel surface. Wear and friction are thereby reduced to a minimum.
Performance Features
HeadLub immediately and successfully eliminates the annoying squeaking in bends. Thanks to its extraordinary adhesive properties, even a very thin application provides long-term protection. HeadLub produced a dry surface coating with an in-depth effect that also adheres to wet rails over long periods and has a water-repellent effect. The adhesive film is evenly distributed over a length of 100 – 200m by subsequent wheels.
HeadLub is winter resistant and can be applied to -30°C.

HeadLub ® TS-0-2

Hi-Tech top-of-rail conditioner for stationary systems.

HeadLub TS-0-2 consists of synthetic esters, fatty soaps, solid lubricants and additives. It is used in stationary installations and prevents rail-squeak. Its properties accelerate the surface smoothing between the top of the rail and the wheel surface, thereby reducing the wear to a minimum.
