  • Aerosol version sprays on wet, and then sets up as a water and corrosion resistant grease
  • Resists melting, freezing, washing off, or breaking down under high speeds, high heats or heavy loads
  • Excellent film strength and durability
  • High dropping point helps ensure retention where high temperatures are encountered
  • Good extreme pressure and anti-wear properties
  • High quality base fluids provide reliable protection against rust and corrosion
  • NLGI #2
