New Prolong grease boasts anti-friction metal treatment

Tuesday, November 1, 2011 - 00:00

LAS VEGAS — Prolong® Super Lubricants introduced its improved high performance multi-purpose grease, Prolong EP-2.5 Grease with Anti-Friction Metal Treatment (AFMT) at the Automotive Aftermarket Product Expo (AAPEX) in Las Vegas, Nov. 1-3.

The new grease offers advanced technology, long-lasting lubrication and surface protection.

The EP-2.5 Grease with AFMT is formulated for high-speed temperature racing and component lubrication and protection in normal and high stress automotive situations. It can also withstand the severe load environment offered by motor sports, off-road vehicles and manufacturing equipment.

“We have developed our EP-2.5 Grease with AFMT using a premium formula that clings well, eases friction and reduces frequency of having to re-pack wheel bearings,” says Jeff Victer, director of sales – global, Prolong Super Lubricants. “The grease is also compatible for use where traditional silicone-based grease is used.”

Prolong’s new formulation will be replacing EP-2 Multi-Purpose Grease, but will be a better formulation at the same price point, Victer says. “Longterm, this is better for our customers. There is a concern, because some people don’t like change. But we haven’t seen one customer that doesn’t like the new grease formulation,” he says.

The EP-2.5 Grease is available in 14 oz. tubes, which can be used in any standard cartridge loading grease gun. Commercial- and industrial-sized applications are also available.

Prolong Super Lubricants, a brand of GoldenWest Lubricants, Inc., produces a wide range of chemicals and car care products, including engine, fuel and transmission additives; chassis and wheel lubricants; rust, vinyl and leather protectants; and waxes.

Its Anti-Friction Metal Treatment™ (AFMT) advanced technology treats and modifies the surface of metal to reduce metal wear, heat and friction.
