Switch Plate Lube

 

  Glidex® track switch agent is used for lubrication of railroad switches, slide plates, throw rods, movable bridges, overhead crane rails, couplers and more!
 
 

Glidex® is non-flammable, non-corrosive, safe to use and provides long-term effectiveness. Glidex® is not water soluble and therefore cannot be washed away by rainfall or melting snow.

Glidex® is a specially formulated synthetic lubrication that is quite fluid, yet remains in place once it becomes "static". This "flowability" enables Glidex® to be easily applied by brushing, pouring, or spraying with a handsprayer. The treated surface is environmentally friendly and will not stain surrounding surface areas. It provides an adherent barrier that will keep metal components continuously lubricated and offer protection against mild ice formation. Dust and dirt will not build-up onto the treated areas and it will not "harden" with age. Ideal protection during wet weather or in inherently wet locations with poor drainage.

Glidex® is a better lubricant than other methods such as oil and liquid graphite because it stays on switches much longer. Depending on how often switches are used, a Glidex® treated train switch can operate from one week to months before another treatment. Other lubricants, oils or greases need more frequent applications requiring crews to reapply lubricants more often. In addition, other methods need to be diluted.


Benefits include, but not limited to:
  • Year Round Protection - Even In Moderate/Wet Climates
  • One Application Lasts Weeks Longer Than Other Methods
  • Is Not Water Soluble - Cannot Be Washed Away By Rain
  • Keeps Switch Lubricated For Weeks - Does Not Dry Out
  • Holds Fast to Vertical Surfaces & Remains In Place
  • Mechanical Lubricant And A Barrier Against Icing
  • Does Not Conduct Electricity or Cause Shorting
  • Reduce Maintenance Hours - It Lasts Longer
  • Replaces Liquid Graphite And Oil Lubricants
  • Safe To Use / Environmentally Friendly
  • Biodegradable / Non-Corrosive
  • Efficient & Economical to Use
  • Will NOT Collect Dust & Dirt

GLIDEX® Keeps Switched Lubricated for Weeks - It Won't Dry Out!!

 

Reduces Maintenance Time, Increases Performance,
Lasts Longer & Doesn’t “Crust”.

Glidex® is a track switch agent used for the lubrication and anti-icing of railroad switch slide plates, throw rods and other moving parts. Additionally, overhead crane rails, door pockets, slide chairs, couplers and moveable bridges can be treated. Glidex® was developed specifically for moderate climates which experience heavy frost and never-ending wet weather. Glidex® is not water soluble therefore will not be affected by rain and moisture.

Does your current lubricant collect dirt and dust? Graphite and heavy greases are well known for packing hard, getting “crusty” and difficult to remove from switch area. Not so with Glidex®. It stays moist for weeks or months, even in extreme temperatures or wet conditions, without drying out or decomposing.

Glidex® is a better lubricant than other methods such as oil and liquid graphite because it stays on switches much longer.

Depending on how often switches are used, a Glidex® treated switch can operate from one week to months before another treatment. Other lubricants need more frequent applications requiring crews to reapply lubricants more often. In addition, other methods need to be diluted. In the case of oil, it turns into a greasy substance at certain temperatures.
