Application method Clean bearing surfaces.
Apply grease in the normal way using a brush, grease gun or automatic lubricating system.
Can be used in centralised lubrication systems.

Due to the many different plastics available, compatibilty and performance tests should always be carried out with the material specified and the lubricant selected prior to their final use.
