Rail, track and switch lubricant solutions

Lubricate Rails, Improve Traction, and See Performance Improve





When moving parts do not perform optimally because rail lubrication, switch lubrication, and train traction are less than optimal, business can grind to a halt. Here’s a simple fact you should know if you have been relying on graphite and petroleum products for rail and track lubrication: Midwest’s Glidex® synthetic organic rail lubrication has been proven more effective. It will also help cost-cutting efforts as well-lubricated rails can reduce fuel costs as well as those associated with wear and tear.

A claim we can back up. That’s why the most direct route to keeping railroad switches, slide plates, throw rods, movable bridges, overhead crane rails and couplers well lubricated and friction free is to turn to Midwest. Glidex helps prevent mechanical breakdown and accidents, and keep trains doing what they are supposed to – moving well.

Ideal for heavy-frost and wet weather climates, Midwest’s rail lubrication and train traction agents:

  • Eliminate friction using the same formulation year-round
  • Reduce maintenance time
  • Increase train-handling performance
  • Are proven to last longer than graphite or petroleum products
  • Do not freeze and can be poured in temperatures as low as -40°F
  • Provide a non-freezable barrier to snow and ice

Biodegradable, non-corrosive and non-conductive, Midwest’s rail, track and switch lubricants will not collect dust and dirt or harden.
