Hear from our customers

  • “The slideway oil I was using had poor demulsibility, which was resulting in high lubricant consumption. Switching to Mobil Vactra Oil Number 2 solved the issue and also delivered an overall saving in lubricant costs.”

  • "I use a range of tools and machines from different builders in my plant. Fortunately, one lubricant is approved by the main equipment manufacturers, Mobil Vactra Oil Number 2. This helps ensure warehouse optimization and avoids potential top-up errors.“

    Customer in France

  • “I was experiencing compatibility problems with my sideway oils and metal working fluids, which required a weekly clean of oil reservoirs and circulating systems – there were also issues with bad smells. A changeover to Mobil Vactra Oil Number 2 solved these issues – it also cut maintenance downtime and enhanced productivity.”

You can keep your equipment performing at its peak with Mobil Vactra Oil.
Designed for smooth slideway operation, Mobil Vactra Oil allows for dynamic friction and smooth movement under heavy loads while also reducing stick slip.
