Neolube by Huron Industries has been used in the nuclear power industry as a premium thread lubricant and anti-seize. It embodies many of the best characteristics of a dry lubricant:

  • Long lasting
  • Minimum dirt and dust collection
  • Doesn’t dry to a goo like oil-based lubricants
  • Much higher heat and pressure ranges
  • Optimum for “maintenance free” applications

With these important characteristics, we have collected 101 Uses for Dry Lubricants. There are thousands of unique uses for these capable lubricants.

Even with all the great Neolube uses possible, some caution is always advised:

  • Be careful with use on plastics and the delivery mechanism of any dry lubricant you use. The problem is usually not with the graphite or Moly, but with the propellent for sprays or binder for paint on applications
  • These same propellants can be harmful to electronic components such as in automobile doors
  • Always use care around fabric or painted surfaces
