HOW CAN I TELL IF SUPER LUBE® MULTI-PURPOSE SYNTHETIC GREASE WITH SYNCOLON® (PTFE) WILL REPLACE THE CONVENTIONAL PETROLEUM-BASED GREASE I CURRENTLY USE?-Monday, 29 June 2020
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:
Super Lube® Multi-Purpose Synthetic Grease with Syncolon® (PTFE) will replace other greases with the same National Lubricating Grease Institute (NLGI) thickness. NLGI #2 is the thickness of most multi-purpose and bearing greases. As a comparison, NLGI #4 greases are very thick and tacky while NLGI #000 greases are almost as thin as an oil.
Super Lube® Multi-Purpose Synthetic Grease with Syncolon® (PTFE) will replace other greases operating at temperatures within a range of -45°F to 450°F continuously and 500°F intermittently.
Super Lube® Multi-Purpose Synthetic Grease with Syncolon® (PTFE) will replace greases used for most applications other than extreme shock and pressure environments where Moly type grease or anti-seize lubricants are typically used. For extreme shock applications use Super Lube® High Temperature Extreme Pressure Grease.
