AMSOIL Semi-Synthetic WLJ is a
high-quality, heavy duty lubricant composed of synthetic base oils,
large molecule petroleum base oils and additives specifically
designed for EP applications found in gear, chain and machine tool
applications. This combination of base oils and EP additives
provides the excellent lubricity and film strength needed to prevent
scoring and wear during equipment operations. By incorporating
synthetic base oils, AMSOIL WLJ reduces friction for good overall
AMSOIL formulated WLJ with additives designed to prevent the
stick/slip or chatter phenomena that commonly occur at the beginning
and end of a machine tool stroke. This happens because the lubricant
and additives are squeezed out during boundary lubrication
conditions. Metal to metal contact then occurs, also causing wear to
the slideways. AMSOIL uses EP additives that form a hard boundary
layer of protection and tackifying agents that improve the adhesion
properties of the oil. These additives prevent stick/slip and wear.
Additionally, WLJ is anti-rust fortified and has excellent
resistance to water washout. This is important since emulsified
cutting fluids are commonly used and components are generally
exposed to the environment.
The performance characteristics of WLJ makes it ideal for chain and
gear applications. WLJ is friction-reducing, compatible with seals
and paints and is resistant to water. The tackifier agents used
ensure the components have constant lubrication, allowing the EP
additives to prevent rust. The semi-synthetic nature of WLJ delivers
excellent performance in a wide variety of environments.

Recommended for slideways, chains
and EP gear applications.
AMSOIL WLJ is recommended for use on machine tools where mating
surfaces operate under heavy loads and slow speeds. Some
applications include the plain bearing slideways of lathes, shapers,
grinders and milling machines plus the slideways of saws and
carraiges found in lumber mills. AMSOIL WLJ is recommended for use
on open or enclosed chain drives and in EP gear box applications
where tackified EP gear oils are recommended or where they do not
pose a problem.
Do not use WLJ on yellow metal or worm gear
applications operating at or above 200 °F.
