Forespar MareLube TEF45 Lubricant 770067 4 Ounce
This formulation makes TEF 45 perfect for high-load/extreme pressure lubrication in a fresh or salt water environment. This highly adhesive waterproof synthetic grease lubricates and is designed to mechanically plate metal surfaces with a PTFE film to provide maximum protection against friction, wear and corrosion. This combination enhances load capacity and also gives TEF 45 an extremely wide operating temperature range.
This totally waterproof and chemical-resistant, synthetic grease prevents corrosion by adhering to and protecting metal surfaces. It is designed to seal out water and lubricate under the most demanding conditions. This maximum PTFE formulation also makes TEF 45 ideal for bi-metal anti-corrosion applications. TEF 45 seals out water and electrolytes from entering the small gaps around fasteners and between metals. With 45% PTFE micropowder and no volatile solvents or silicones or petroleum to evaporate, it prevents voids for electrolytes to be drawn into these gaps and creating a galvanic microcell that causes corrosion over extended periods of time.
When applied to both surfaces before assembly, it leaves a layer of 45% solid PTFE between threads and all other contacts. This long-lasting friction barrier, with no volatile solvents, silicones or petroleum to evaporate, will not cold flow or dry out. This protection lasts for years until the hardware is dissembled, preventing seizing and galling. TEF 45 also acts as a "parting lubricant" on all surfaces it is applied to.
TEF 45 protects and can be used on all electrical connections. It is an excellent "dielectric" grease and does insulate or increase the resistance of power connections. The pure synthetic grease and 45% PTFE micropowder flows out of the electrical contact points and into the surrounding gaps. With no volatiles to evaporate, it prevents voids for electrolytes to be drawn into the connection and prevents corrosion.
