Discover How to Lubricate Telescopic Cranes with Molykote

Special transport rental companies are looking for long-lasting and resistant lubricant solutions to the problem of grease shedding on telescopic crane booms. This problem is common in sectors such as public works, the wind sector and the maritime- naval industry etc.

The detachment of grease from the telescopic arm of cranes is an ecological and safety problem for the environment as the grease falls to the ground. This leads to an increase in relubrication periods, thus increasing costs and, in addition, giving a bad image to the company.
