ChevronTexaco Vistac® ISO 68 Way Oil
Categories: Fluid; Lubricant

Material Notes: Features

Chevron Way Oils Vistac provide extreme pressure and antiwear protection and have stringiness and oiliness characteristics. As indicated by part of the name, Vistac, these lubricants have an unusual adhesive or tacky quality.

Chevron Way Oils Vistac reduce leakage and adhere to metal surfaces providing a tenacious lubricant film. Chevron Way Oils Vistac are formulated to meet the critical lubrication demands for the slides and ways of machine tools.

Their inherent low coefficient of static friction eliminates stick-slip or jerky motion of sliding parts on machine tools which increase operating efficiency of the tools and smoother overall operation.

Due to their adhesiveness, these oils form a tenacious film which resists being wiped away by the slowly moving parallel surfaces of the way or being washed away by cutting fluids.

Their antiwear and extreme pressure properties protect the sliding surfaces.

These oils also protect cast iron and bronze surfaces from rust and corrosion, and are resistant to oxidation to provide long lubricant life.


Chevron Way Oils Vistac have proven excellence in the lubrication of ways in many types of machine tools, e.g., lathes, planers, shapers, drilling and tapping machines, etc., including those operating at high loads. These oils provide many performance characteristics that lend themselves well to lubrication of enclosed gears and all types of industrial plain and antifriction bearings.

Their tacky quality makes these oils suitable for oncethrough applications, e.g., lubrication of chain drives. If contamination with soluble oils is a problem, Chevron Way Oils Vistac® D is recommended. Chevron Way Oils Vistac meet the requirements of:

  • Cincinnati Machine P-47 (ISO 68), P-50 (ISO 220) specifications for way lubricants
  • Hardinge Groove Print Stain Test (ISO 68)
Chevron Way Oils Vistac are registered with NSF and are acceptable as a lubricant where there is no possibility of food contact (H2) in and around food processing areas. The NSF Nonfood Compounds Registration Program is a continuation of the USDA product approval and listing program, which is based on meeting regulatory requirements of appropriate use, ingredient review and labeling verification.
