High-performance paste with white solid lubricants for universal application

Performance Features

  • temperature range: -20 / +140 °C
  • when used as a screw or assembly paste: -40 / +1,200°C
  • withstands extreme pressures
  • produces low coefficients of friction
  • excellent protection against wear
  • very good adhesion
  • very good protection against corrosion, and it is waterresistant
  • protects against fretting corrosion (tribocorrosion)
  • prevents stick-slip and seizure
  • Authorised for use underground by the Arnsberg District Authority, Dortmund; authorisation reference number:


GLEITMO WSP 5040 is a high-performance paste based on a high-grade, special calcium-complex thickener structure with a synergetic combination of highly effective white solid lubricants.

Range of application

GLEITMO WSP 5040 is used for all kinds of machine parts subjected to extreme pressures, impulse loads and/or vibrating or oscillating movements. It is particularly appropriate if the surrounding area is subject to high humidity or the effects of splash water. For sliding pairings, which have a tendency to stick slip and fretting (seizure). At low sliding speeds and high pressures as well as where fretting corrosion (tribocorrosion) occurs. GLEITMO WSP 5040 is particularly suitable for lubricating chucks and tensioning elements. In addition to that GLEITMO WSP 5040 has proved itself as assembly paste and can be used as screw paste in this case also in the high-temperature range up to 1,200 °C. Other typical applications: Spindles, large armatures, sliding guides, sliding bearings, oscillating bolts on construction machinery, tilting bearings, stainless steel connections, etc. Because of the high proportion of solid particles, GLEITMO WSP 5040 should not be used for lubricating roller bearings.


Apply GLEITMO WSP 5040 with spatulas, brushes or lint-free cloths onto the previously cleaned (if possible) surfaces. Otherwise as is normal with greases. GLEITMO WSP 5040 is also available as a spray.

FUCHS Recommendations


The information shown on this side is based on the experience and expertise of the FUCHS Group in the development and manufacture of lubricants and represents the current state of the art. The performance of our products can be influenced by a series of factors, especially the specific use, the method of application, the operational environment, component pretreatment, possible external contamination, etc. For this reason, universally valid statements about the function of our products are not possible. Our products must not be used in aircraft/spacecraft or parts thereof. This does not apply if the products can be removed again before the components are fitted in an aircraft/spacecraft. The information given here represents general, non-binding guidelines. No warranty expressed or implied is given concerning the properties of the product or its suitability for any given application. We therefore recommend that you consult a FUCHS Group application engineer to discuss application conditions and the performance criteria of the products before the products are used. It is the responsibility of the user to test the functional suitability of the products and to use them with the corresponding care. Our products are subject to continuous further development. We therefore retain the right to change our product range, the products, and their manufacturing processes as well as all details on this side at any time and without warning, provided that no customer-specific agreements exist that require otherwise.
