|Having a page labeled "lubricating oil" seemed a little redundant. Aren't all oils, lubricants and vice-versa? I know; you're a pilot, mechanic, aviator. You don't care. Let SkyGeek deal with these philosophical debates…|
But consider this: Parts are machined. They aren't flesh and blood. They can't lube themselves. Using these facts (based on hours of research and countless days of pondering) we discovered that plane parts (and really most mechanized parts in general) inevitably need some kind of lubrication in order to normally operate.
Metal-on-metal; just the thought makes us cringe. That awful grinding, followed by the recognition that piles of money will now be necessary to replace damaged parts, are the things nightmares are made of. Like you, we know how important it is to have mineral oils and general purpose lubricants on-hand.
That's why we've put together a selection of nonreactive, nonflammable and safe lubricants that can prevent issues before they start. Benefits abound depending on your choice. Some withstand extreme temperatures (DuPont® Krytox 143) while others are designed for small arms applications with long times of indoor storage (Brayco® 300). Either way, all these oils act as a means of prolonging the life span of parts by preventing corrosion. Owning these products is a sound decision. No more friction-induced nightmares.
