Features and Benefits

MOBIL SAWGUIDE OIL offers the following features and benefits:

Forms a highly effective friction-reducing film between the blade and the guide. This reduces operating temperature, which, in turn, reduces cooling-water requirements.Drier sawdust
The buildup of pitch, or wood resin, on the blade and sawguide increases friction and accelerates wear. MOBIL SAWGUIDE OIL is uniquely formulated to reduce and control pitch buildup by optimizing lubricant solvency.Provides outstanding control of friction and wear
Clings tenaciously to blade and guide surfaces, reliably protecting against the damaging metal-to-metal contact that causes wear.Superb wear protection
Contains a potent anti-rust additive to protect blade surfaces from rust that would otherwise stain lumber surfaces.Protects against rust
Formulated with tackiness additives that reduce the amount of oil thrown off the blades or blown off by air/water sprays.Controls stray mist


MOBIL SAWGUIDE OIL is specially formulated to meet the lubrication requirements of modern gang saws and edgers.
