Dry graphite lube bonds instantly to metal, rubber, plastic and most substrates to form a dirt repelling barrier that lubricates and protects the surface from pressure and friction. Withstands temperatures up to 850 degrees F and extreme pressures, as well as water and chemical attack. Contains no known ozone depleting chemicals. Offers effective performance while complying with the EPA regulations on the use of ozone depleting chemicals. Recommended as a general maintenance lubricant on gaskets, transfer belts and conveyor belts; as an assembly lube on motors, plant machinery and handling equipment; and as a general lubricant for high temperature, low load, or high rpm slides, rollers, wheels, gears, chains and hoists.
