Grease for Lubrication
Grease is a dispersion of thickening agents in a base oil. The oil component typically influences the temperature stability of the compound, whereas thickeners are added to give the grease special properties like electrical conductivity and thermal conductivity. A lubricating grease such as white lithium grease works by lowering the coefficient of friction at the interface between 2 or more parts. It is often used as a gear grease and to protect bearings.
White Lithium Grease Uses
Lithium grease is used primarily as a lubricant to reduce wear and extend the parts’ life by reducing friction, which reduces mechanical wear and heat buildup. It can be used as a pulley bearing grease, or you can use white lithium grease for door hinges. This low friction grease has a soft, smooth texture characterized by a low NLGI consistency number determined by measuring the worked penetration range.
