Control Cables

Control cables carry load and control position over long distances, must operate smoothly and easily for many cycles over long periods of time. The flexible nature of control cable is an advantage but creates a great deal of friction between the inner cable and the outer sheath. The right lubricant is critical to keep friction at a minimum and should get in between those parts quickly. The near universal solution for cable lubrication is silicone. Silicone oils and greases offer wide temperature and good surface wetting characteristics. While cable lubricants are not exclusively silicone-based, it is common to find some type of synthetic lubricant on these popular parts.
