CICO® TL 1500 B, wheel flange lubricant, is a combination of chemically treated solid lubricants and a solvent-free, biodegradable, organic carrier. It was developed in order to reduce the rolling and sliding friction between the wheel flange and rail flanks that occur under extreme environmental conditions. CICO® TL 1500 B eliminates small cracks. As a result, no further cracks or metal breakouts can be seen on the wheel flange and rail flanks. The strongly adhering film is characterized by good stability with a high solids content. It ensures a dry, homogeneous surface coating with only low consumption. A spinning off or damage to surrounding components is almost impossible, due to its thixotropic nature.

CICO® TL 1500 B reduces rolling resistance and wear. The braking effect is not impaired by CICO® TL 1500 B and the noise level is reduced. A high level of operational safety is guaranteed.

CICO® TL 1500 B contributes to vehicle safety and stability as well as long-term cost minimization and efficiency.

Application information

In combination with the appropriate application method, CICO® TL 1500 B forms a lubricating film that cannot be dissolved by conventional cleaning agents and adheres extremely strongly to metal surfaces, even at low dosages. A connection with rail abrasion and road dirt is avoided. The long-term separating and lubricating film prevents function-disruptive icing during winter. Wear and noise are significantly reduced.

CICO® TL 1500 B is supplied in containers of 5 kg, 10 kg, 25 kg and 200 kg. Other container sizes on request.
