LANOX. Lanolin is a natural wax found in animal wool especially the wool from sheep, commonly referred as ‘WOOL FAT’ or ‘WOOL GREASE’, it has wide spread uses, cosmetics, medical, soaps, etc. Down through the centuries the Egyptians, Romans, Vikings, sailors and soldiers alike all used lanolin as a very effective anti- corrosion and waterproofing agent for a variety of metals, materials, timbers, to protect sails, leather, cannons, etc. Although we make INOX, a quality anti-corrosion lubricant, there are areas where a lanolin based anti-corrosion lubricant like LANOX is sometimes better suited for the application at hand.

LANOX is a heavy duty anti-moisture, anti-corrosion lubricant made with a high grade lubricating oil and lanolin base with specialized chemical compounds.

LANOX contains no silicon, kerosene, acids or dieselene.

LANOX is harmless to metal points & surfaces, plastics, painted & enamel finishes, fibreglass, formica, rubber or neoprene seals.

LANOX doesn’t become sticky, gooey or gum up.

LANOX is non-conductive, non-static & non-corrosive.


More Info on Lanox and some Applications:

Many people have asked, “Why bring out another anti-corrosion lubricant when I had the best product of this type, INOX already on the market”. The answer is quite simple, sure INOX will cover most of the applications most of the times where an anti-corrosion lubricant is required, but there are times when a heavier, longer lasting anti-corrosion lubricant is needed to do the job. 4 years of research and testing went into LANOX before I brought it out on the market.

About 70% of the time LANOX and INOX can be used for the same application, INOX being more suitable for the lighter applications such as electrical, hobbies and the food and beverage processing industry ( FOOD GRADE APPROVED ) and LANOX suitable for the more extreme climatic and high humidity conditions. We have found that INOX may effect some of the more modern natural rubber products with continual long term use, LANOX doesn’t have this effect.
ANCHORS, CHAINS & SHACKLE BOLTS: For good protection against corrosion and helps reduce fouling.

CONCRETE: Keeps shovels, trowels, floats & formwork clean and corrosion free between use – Stops mortar and concrete adhering to aluminium frames, window & door glass on construction and building work sites.

CONSTRUCTION & FABRICATION: Protects bare metal surfaces, frame work and welded joints in the open air from corrosion during construction before painting – Also good for the protection of all unpainted metal held in storage.

EARTH MOVING MACHINERY: Use as an anti-seize on track and blade bolts & nuts before screwing together – Protects all blades and bare metal surfaces between use.

FARM MACHINERY: Protects all painted and bare mental surfaces, sprockets, chains and cables from corrosion on all tractors, harvesters (grain, sugar, grape, etc), sowers, vegetable diggers and washers in use and in the off season.

IRRIGATION PLANT & PIPES: Keeps pump motors, cables, linkages, couplings and electricals clean and free from corrosion and lubricated while in use and when in storage.

JET SKIS & OUTBOARDS: Protects outboards, clamps, props and jet skis from salt water corrosion, will not harm or harden rubber fittings – Keeps control and steering cables and linkages in good working order, lubricated and corrosion free.

LIVESTOCK TRANSPORT: Spray on all livestock crates and gates (rail , road, etc) to protect from rust and chemical corrosion before transit or in storage. Lubricates and protects locks and hinges.

MINING: Protects all bare metal surfaces, pump motors (above and below ground), drag lines, winches and associated electricals from moisture and corrosion in humid and adverse weather conditions.

MOORINGS & SLIPS: Stops electrolysis – Keeps winches, cables, slip cradles and wheel bushes lubricated & corrosion free – protection for all electricals from moisture & corrosion.

PROTECTION: Protects all painted and bare metal surfaces in the open from moisture and corrosion – Protects all timber surfaces for water and dry rot ( may slightly darken bare timber but it will not harm it) – Waterproofs and protects leather harness’s, boots, etc. Protects Firearms, barrels, etc in long term storage, will not harm stocks or metal finishes.

TRAILERS: Boat, box & car trailers and horse floats, spray on chassis, springs, axles, hinges, couplings, winches, cables. light fittings and electricals for protection from sea air and salt water corrosion.

THREAD ANTI-SEIZE: Spray on all metal threads before joining, stops threads from corroding together, makes it easier to undo all joints, nuts, bolts and screws at a later date.
Lubricant for Boating and Fishing



LANOX is a Lanolin based anti-corrosion, anti-moisture lubricant.

What difference is there between LANOX and INOX.

LANOX has been designed for a more heavy duty application than the original INOX, it is not food grade approved like INOX because it contains Lanolin, solvents and oil, it has no adverse effect on rubber.

Can I use LANOX for any applications that I would normally use INOX.

In about 70% of instances LANOX & INOX will have the same results as both contain no silicon, acids, kerosene or dieselene. They are both top quality lubricants, cutting agents and anti-moisture, anti-corrosion sprays.

What are the areas that LANOX would be preferred over INOX.

For example LANOX is more suitable in certain marine applications such as Anchors, Chains & Shackle Bolts and in the protection of Outboard & Inboard Motors. INOX would be best used in areas such as Marine Radios, Sail Tracks (non-staining) and the protection of stainless & aluminium fittings ( good for polishing stainless steel, aluminium & fibreglass). For use in Firearms, LANOX is best used for long term storages purposes whereas INOX has better applications for the day to day cleaning and lubrication (anti-static) so it doesn’t attract dirt and helps clean barrel residues easier.

Does LANOX have applications in the Farming Industry.

Because of it’s Lanolin base it has good long term applications in areas such as cutter bars on headers, lawnmowers, linkages, etc to protect against rust and corrosion (spray onto moving parts to give protection during stand down periods). LANOX is a good anti-corrosion agent for bare metals in storage, stock crates or as a protectant after welding. LANOX is also a good long term lubricant for areas that traditionally receive little maintenance attention (ie. gate hinges, stationary motors, etc).

Does LANOX have applications for Earthmoving Equipment.
LANOX can be used as long term lubrication for linkages, cables couplings, etc and for corrosion protection in electrical systems as well as an anti-seize on track bolts and wheel studs.

Can LANOX be used as a cutting lubricant.
Yes, tests conducted prior to it’s release found that LANOX is an effective cutting, milling, tapping and thread cutting lubricant for a variety of metals. It is especially effective on aluminium.
