What is lithium grease?

Lithium Grease has become a staple of an engineer’s arsenal, being used for a number of different things. There are 3 main constituent parts to a grease: –

  • Oil
  • Thickener
  • Additives

What is High Performance White Lithium Grease and what is it used for?


Put simply, the oil is the main dynamic lubricator; the thickener determines the physical characteristics of the product; and additives enhance the operating properties of the grease.

Lithium is a type of thickener; so not only provides structure to hold the oil in place, but it also acts as a sponge by releasing small amounts of oil during operation.

There are several different types of thickener depending on application requirements and factors; such as moisture levels, extremes of temperature and speed.

However, for many applications that are deemed non-extreme or general purpose in nature, Lithium is a popular choice

The benefits of White Lithium Grease:

  • Thick lithium grease solution provides – great long-term lubrication
  • High viscosity formula – won’t drip or run
  • Works well under pressure – ideal for load bearing connections
  • Reduces friction and wear
  • Perfect for metal-to-metal applications
  • Water and heat resistant – great for outdoor use

WD-40 thick High-Performance White Lithium Grease lubricant provides great protection for heavy duty, metal-to-metal applications. It can be used outdoors regardless of weather and temperature conditions.

The high viscosity water-resistant formula won’t drip or run, remaining where it’s applied through all weathers, and through temperatures from -18°C to +145°C

This makes it ideal for use on automotive connections, tow bars, gear and brake mechanisms and CV joints.

WD-40 High-Performance White Lithium Grease lubricant is also great for use on gardening tools; keeping them in good working order through the seasons with minimal maintenance. Use WD-40 White Lithium Grease to keep components moving smoothly and free of friction and seizing, as well as preventatively to protect against rust and corrosion.

Use White Lithium Grease for:

  • Motor pivot points
  • Bearings
  • Winches
  • Pistons
  • Conveyors
  • Tracks and runners
  • Cables and chains
  • Water pumps
  • Gear and brake mechanisms
  • Latches and hinges
  • Gardening tools
  • Tow bars for trailers/caravans


What’s more, with the Smart Straw applicator, you’ve got two ways to spray!

  1. Use the flip up straw for hard to reach areas, such as inside chains, locks or rollers.
  2. Flip it down to use the wide-angle spray eye for area coverage on surfaces.What is High Performance White Lithium Grease and what is it used for?

Whichever way you need to spray, you can rely on the clever 360° valve to work efficiently at every angle, even upside down.
