High Performance Machine Tool Slideways Oils

PETRONAS Slideway Series are high performance lubricants specially developed for machine-tool ways and slides where precision or slow speeds make it necessary that “stick-slip” of tables and slides are eliminated.

Formulated with high quality selected mineral base oils enhanced with advanced anti-oxidant, anti-rust, extreme pressure, anti-wear and anti-foam additives, PETRONAS Slideway oils provide excellent separation from water-miscible cutting fluids, high anti-wear protection and a combination of adhesiveness and stick-slip characteristics ensuring smooth operation of the machine tools.


PETRONAS Slideway Series are recommended for use in:

  • machine tool slideway tables, feed mechanisms, linear guides, headstocks and transverse screws
  • ISO VG68 is generally recommended for slideway on small to medium size machine tools, as well as flooded applications in large machines, also suitable for circulating application in large machines and as a moderate duty hydraulic fluid
  • ISO VG220 is the normal recommendation on large machines where way pressures are high or extreme precision is required and for vertical and inclined slideways where drain down can be a problem


Excellent separation with miscible cutting fluids

Due to excellent water-miscible metalworking fluids separation, it allows easy removal by cleaning systems

High extreme pressure protection

High extreme pressure performance giving long gear life in severely loaded gear drives

High anti-wear protection

Protects equipment components from excessive wear and provides long equipment life

High friction properties

Frictional properties (stick-slip) to meet slideway requirements
