The 3-in-One Professional White Lithium Grease contains 10.25 oz. of grease that creates a thick, corrosion-resistant coating on surfaces and reduces friction during metal-to-metal contact. The grease sprays on as a liquid but cures into a hard coating that will not run, melt, or freeze off, making it suitable for use outdoors. The aerosol can includes a detached straw that inserts into the nozzle to create a precision stream of grease for controlled application.
Industrial lubricants can be found in most machinery performing one or more functions, including reducing friction and wear, preventing components from adhering to each other, distributing loads more evenly, dispersing heat away from moving parts, and preventing corrosion. Although many materials are used as lubricants, the most common are oil (also called fluid lubricants) and grease because of their versatility. Oil lubricants contain either a petroleum or synthetic base, the properties of which are modified by the addition of various additives. Grease lubricants, a mixture of oil lubricant and a thickening agent, have a thicker consistency than oil, enabling use wherever liquids cannot be retained and requiring less frequent changes.
WD-40 manufactures lubricants, as well as household and industrial cleaners, and is headquartered in San Diego, CA.
