Super Lube is a NLGI grade 2 heavy-duty multi-purpose lubricant compatible with most lubricants. It contains PTFE (Teflon), is clear and non-toxic, has excellent adhesion, and will outlast conventional greases by 40-100%. It is dielectric and impervious to water and is listed as a USDA food grade lubricant (rated H-1) with an effective temperature range of –45° F. to 450° F. It will not run, drip, dry out, melt or separate and does not evaporate or form gummy deposits. It is also non-staining.
Sherline uses and recommends this grease on lead-screws and behind hand-wheels where they rub against the thrust. It can also be used on the bed, carriage and saddle dovetails of the lathe and mill, on gears, hinges and bearings. We prefer to use a light duty way lube for most of these areas however. We carry Super Lube as it is a great general purpose grease however.
