Super Grease Powerful Ejector Pin Lubricant

Slide Super Grease Ejector Pin Lubrication

Slide’s clear, non-yellowing, Super Grease is an indispensable product in helping to preserve the life of your injection molding tools through proper ejector pin lubrication. Our paintable formulation has excellent load-bearing attributes and mechanical stability. It holds up well against intense high heat and easily adapts to sudden fluctuations of hot or cold. This standout grease is the best selection for medical and food grade plastic part molding.

Recently the NLGI (National Lubricating Grease Institute) established a classification standard for lubricating products. The consistency number, or NLGI grade, is a measure of the relative hardness of a specific agent. Higher NLGI numbers mean firmer and thicker grease.

Slide’s Super Grease has a classification of Grade 2 on the NLGI scale. This lubricant has been proven to ensure the proper functioning of ejector pins, leader pins, tie bars and other moving mold components. The NSF-approved formula performs better under an extreme temperature range than other available options. It is a smart choice when looking to combat contamination, eliminate discoloration, prevent corrosion and repel water throughout production processes. There are very few lubricating products on the market today that possess the essential thixotropic properties that will save you production time and money like Super Grease!

See below the NLGI guide for choosing lubricants and greases:
