Metachain™ – a range of fully synthetic chain oils

Metalube Logo

The Metachain™ products are a range of fully synthetic high temperature chain oils. The range has been formulated using the latest synthetic base oils, anti-oxidants and anti-wear additives to meet the demands of specific chain applications for use in ovens where conventional oils cannot function properly.


Features and benefits

  • Highly resistant to carbonisation which leads to a reduction in the amount of oil applied over a defined period
  • Excellent resistance to carbonisation will also lead to a lower level of evaporation and carbon build-up on the chain system and internal surfaces of the oven
  • A unique combination of anti-wear additives will reduce the friction and metal-to-metal contact on the chain system which will lead to longer chain life and improved consumption of the chain oil.

The traditional challenges faced by any operator of a high temperature oven are that the oil that lubricates the chain will gradually carbonise and lose its lubrication properties. Metachain™ products use the latest synthetic base oils and additives and have been formulated to achieve a balance between the enhanced technological performance provided by the product and the cost to our end users.

The Metachain™ HT Range

The Metachain™ HT range is designed to offer ultra-high performance, high temperature chain oils to industrial users with ovens chains in a multitude of different market sectors. This product range offers synthetic ester based technology and world-leading anti-oxidant technology which provides extended lubrication intervals with minimal levels of carbon deposits.
