They have been associated with Vickers Oils for over 20 years and while working closely, together they have managed to establish a market for Vickers Oils lubricants in the Italian textile industry.

VICKERLUBE SOCK 46 is a high-quality needle oil designed to meet the demanding requirements of modern sock knitting machine technology. The oil offers optimum lubrication and oil film thickness and its inherent stability offers outstanding performance in both boundary and mixed friction areas of the knitting elements.  

Mr Riccardo Rizzotto of Lubrogamma confirms that “The use of VICKERLUBE SOCK 46 has contributed to a reduction in wear and deposit formation in the needle grooves and stitch-forming elements. In addition, the oils’ ability to keep the cylinder and needles running extremely clean has helped customers to ensure trouble free running and extended needle life.”

The well-balanced additive system in VICKERLUBE SOCK 46 means that it is fully compatible with all machine components. It can also be used with any yarn type including elastane, to produce the highest quality goods. The oil is also suitable for all processing and finishing routes ensuring the customer has the flexibility necessary in today’s market.

As well as being committed to operate to the highest standards of product quality and customer service, Vickers Oils are committed to sustainable development and as such VICKERLUBE SOCK 46 meets the clearly defined criteria set out by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS).”
