How It Works

To prevent corrosion, our lubricants form a chemical bound with metal surfaces, which not only eliminates the risk of rusting - even during compressor standstill but also enables the compressor to resist water contamination.

The anti-foam characteristics eliminate the risk of cavitation. The ScrewGuard ROTAIR lubricant is fully compatible with our complete range of compressors.
