About PTFE (Teflon) based lubricants for your machines
Several years ago a customer recommended we try a new Teflon-based
grease on our machines. He had found that it really improved the
performance and ease of use on his Sherline mill. We tried some and
found he was right. We purchased a large bucket of a synthetic grease
called Super Lube with Syncolon® and have been lubricating
all our new machines with it. Since then we have had many requests for
the name and source of the lubricant we use. We are now able to offer
both the synthetic grease and a dry spray version as part of our
accessory line to allow you to order it along with other Sherline
products. Aside from lubricating the moving parts of your Sherline
machines, you will also find many uses for these lubricants around the
house or shop.
The grease contains PTFE (Teflon) and is used as a multi-purpose
lubricant. It is clear and non-toxic. Super Lube is a NLGI grade 2
heavy-duty multi-purpose lubricant compatible with most lubricants. It
outlast conventional greases by 40-100% and has excellent adhesion. It
is dielectric and impervious to water and is listed as a USDA food grade
lubricant (rated H-1) having 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. The grease
is recommended for leadscrews and behind handwheels 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.
Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) and more data about the lubricants can be found on the Super Lube web site at www.super-lube.com.
