We can help you switch over using a Nye Lubricants damping grease to a TSE damping grease now that we are no longer able to offer the Nye damping grease range. TriboScience & Engineering (TSE) are our new synthetic lubricant manufacturing partner. TSE have an excellent range of damping grease, which will match and probably exceed performance of our previous range. How/Why? The formulations of the TSE offer superior performance due to the inclusion of a proprietary copolymer in their Tribosyn 320 damping grease series, but this also makes direct comparisons with both Nyogel 774 and Fluorocarbon Gel 868 ranges from Nye, a little more tricky that just stating that they are direct equivalents or alternatives.
Below is a table showing which TSE damping grease you should consider when considering switching from the Nye Lubricants brand/s of damping grease, to a TSE alternative:
Damping grease switching table
|Nye damping grease||Suggested TSE damping grease||Product match remarks - remember that damping is mostly a subjective matter but the below information is based on customer feedback|
|Nyogel 774VL / Fluorocarbon Gel 868VL||Tribosyn 320 Clear||Very close product match.|
|Nyogel 774L / Fluorocarbon Gel 868L||Tribosyn 320 Red||Close product match. 320 Red was is also a very close match to Nyogel|
|Nyogel 774 / Fluorocarbon Gel 868||Tribosyn 320 Orange||Close-ish match. 320 Orange is also a close match to the older Nyogel 795A.|
|Nyogel 774H / Fluorocarbon Gel 868H||Tribosyn 320 Yellow||Close. 320 Yellow is also a close match to the old formulation/product called Nyogel 773A.|
|Nyogel 774VH / Fluorocarbon Gel 868VH||Tribosyn 320 Green||The 320 Green is the nearest match but is more viscous/stiff so users that don't mind a slightly stiffer grease should choose 320 Green but 320 Yellow should be considered if 774VH was considered a little too stiff.|
|Nyogel 767A||Tribosyn 320 Green||The 320 Green is probably the nearest match but we are increasingly finding that former 767A users prefer the 320 Blue, which stiffer/more viscous.|
|PG-44LS||Tribosyn 320 Blue||No real close match, the 320 Blue being less stiff/less viscous. If PG-44LS was used in sub zero applications, go with the 320 Blue but if the grease is used in room temp applications/devices, probably best to use Tribosyn PG-44A|
|PG-44A||Tribosyn PG44A||Specifically developed as an equivalent so a very close match. Tribosyn PG44A was developed more recently than the Tribosyn 320 series of products and so does not feature on the colour coded charts.|
We will shortly be writing an article about the TSE damping grease range.
