Marine grease is a semi-solid lubricant used to protect marine components from tear, wear and corrosion. It has lubricating fluids, performance-enhancing additives, and thickeners. It is produce by using reduced fat of waste animal parts, inedible lard and synthetic oil, or can be petroleum-derived containing a thickening agent. Marine grease acts as a sealant to decrease water leakage and protects the marine from impurities. It helps to maintain stop-start performance flexibility, protect bearing surfaces, and reduce friction. It provides enhanced rust-proofing performance, high thermal stability and wear resistance, and high viscosity index and corrosion protection.
