HOW CAN I TELL IF SUPER LUBE® MULTI-PURPOSE SYNTHETIC GREASE WITH SYNCOLON® (PTFE) WILL REPLACE THE CONVENTIONAL PETROLEUM-BASED GREASE I CURRENTLY USE?
As synthetic lubricants continue to become the norm for many lubrication applications, there is often the question: Will Super Lube® be able to replace the petroleum-based grease that I currently use? There are three key items to consider: Viscosity... next...
SUPER LUBE® & COMMERCIAL FAUCETS
Just like doors, faucets that squeak or give resistance are in need of lubrication. Luckily, when a sink faucet is hard to move or makes noise, it can easily be fixed with a touch of Super Lube®. Our lubricant is food-grade safe, meaning that... next...
CAN SUPER LUBE® BE USED AS A PROTECTIVE COATING?
When friction acts between two surfaces, those surfaces suffer from wear. If this occurs on your tools or machinery, you will eventually find that your equipment is not reaching their peak performance. Lubricants can help prevent this. In addition,... next...
CAN SUPER LUBE® BE USED AS A HEAT TRANSFER LUBRICANT?
Super Lube® is thermally conductive. Super Lube® Multi-Purpose Synthetic Oil with Syncolon® (PTFE), Super Lube® Synthetic Lightweight Oil and Super Lube® Extra Lightweight Oil are good for use in heat transfer circulating systems and do not... next...
CAN SUPER LUBE® BE USED AS A VALVE LUBRICANT AND SEALANT?
Protecting and sealing your valves from the elements is critical for maintaining performance. Super Lube® Silicone Dielectric Grease and Super Lube® Silicone Lubricating Grease with Syncolon® (PTFE) provide a non-curing moisture barrier for... next...
SUPER LUBE® AUTOMOTIVE APPLICATIONS
When you're ready to hit the road, you want to make sure that your vehicle is working at its absolute best. We are dedicated to providing our customers with products that ensure they can handle whatever the road throws at them. We make sure... next...
HOW DO OPERATING SPEEDS AFFECT THE VISCOSITY OF SUPER LUBE®?
In general, thick oils are best for slow operating speeds and thin oils for high-speed applications. Super Lube® is a thixotropic material. This means it will thin at the point of shear as operating speeds increase in order to maintain the most... next...
HOW DOES TEMPERATURE AFFECT THE VISCOSITY OF SUPER LUBE®?
We previously spoke about the importance of viscosity in a previous blog post. What you may not know, however, is that oil viscosity can vary wildly in some oils depending on the temperature where it is applied. Super Lube®, because it is synthetic,... next...
WHY IS VISCOSITY SO IMPORTANT TO LUBRICATING OILS?
Viscosity, or the thickness of the oil, is important because it determines the lubricant's film strength and efficiency in preventing friction between moving parts. Thick oil has a high viscosity, and thin oil has a low viscosity. If oil is... next...
CAN SUPER LUBE® BE USED AS A VALVE LUBRICANT AND SEALANT?
A properly functioning valve is responsible for more than just controlling flow; it also needs to prevent leakage and prevent degrading over time. At Super Lube®, we have developed products that work well for valve lubrication and valve sealing.... next...
