Lubricants from Silmid

Silmid lubricants

Silmid has been trading in the UK since the beginning of the 1980s and in that time has become one of the country's foremost distributors and dealers of lubricants, adhesives, silicones, sealants, cleaning agents and surface treatments. When we were first established, our core business was focused in aerospace but since then we have extended our remit to include a wide range of other sectors, including everything from oil and gas exploration to renewable energy, engineering and defence to electronics, as well as the rail, marine and automotive industries. Within more than three decades of steady expansion, we have gained a sterling reputation as a world leader in the area of industrial lubricants.

AeroShell is part of Shell Aviation and is a globally-recognised brand for aviation and lubricants. Silmid has been a partner of Shell Aviation for more than three decades and is AeroShell’s leading distributor across Europe. The robust, long-standing relationship between Silmid and Shell Aviation has enabled us to supply the full range of AeroShell branded products to our customers, and we are also an authorised repacker of AeroShell products. This allows us to repackage AeroShell products into smaller containers whilst passing on the AeroShell guarantee, something which non-authorised repackers are not permitted to do.

What kind of lubricants are available and what do they do?

Typically, when lubricants are used in an industrial setting, they are used to protect machinery parts against friction and erosion. They also help to protect against corrosion by eliminating moisture and ensuring that the part in question has a continuous coating. Some of the most common types of lubricant are gear lubricant, motor lubricant and fuel lubricant. Silmid is one of the most highly regarded lubricant distributors in the UK.

When it comes to choosing the lubricant that's best for you, it is essential to take into account not only the intended application of the lubricant, but also the specific environmental conditions in which the assembly will find itself. Environmental factors are absolutely critical when it comes to making a successful selection of the lubricant product that's right for you. Factors to take into consideration include severe high or low temperatures and the presence of powerful chemicals or contaminants that may have an unfavourable effect on the performance of the eventual lubricant.

Silmid Lubricants offer a superior level of protection for industrial equipment and manufacturing plants. Our range includes products with mineral, synthetic and organic bases, all of which meet the stringent requirements of the relevant industrial applications.
