The plant-based oil used in UltraLube® has four times the lubricating qualities of conventional petroleum, which means less heat and less wear. In fact, tests prove that it performs significantly better than the competitors, and creates long-lasting bonds with metal and even plastic surfaces.

4x more lubrication than petroleum-based oils
UltraLube® is proven to offer 4x more lubrication than petroleum based oils and greases.

The above chart shows the results of this test (ASTM D3233) conducted by the National Ag-Based Lubricants Center (NABL) using UltraLube® high oleic base oil and three different viscosities of petroleum base oils. Compare the UltraLube® base oil result of 1,756 lbF (pounds of force) to the average of the petroleum base oils of 434 lbF - UltraLube® has four times the lubricity, or friction reducing capability of petroleum-based oil. 

UltraLube® outperforms the competition
We sprayed an electric motor with a number of our competitors’ lubricants. Each time the motor was turned on and pressure was applied the motor stalled after only a few pounds of pressure. But when we tested UltraLube®, it took four times the amount of pressure to stall the motor. See for yourself how UltraLube® outperforms the competition. Watch the video now.

More performance advantages of UltraLube:

  • Helps parts function better - frees rusted parts, prevents corrosion
  • Instantly penetrates and lasts longer, so it can be applied less often
  • Reduces heat and friction better than petroleum-based products
  • 35% better wear protection in Four-Ball Weld* Test 
  • Replaces and mixes readily with petroleum-based products
  • Higher flashpoint than petroleum, so it's safer to use 
  • Higher viscosity so it's less likely to thin out at higher temperatures
  • Higher film strength so it can withstand pressure better

Results based on ASTM Falex Pin and Vee Block Test D3233. ASTM D3233 test runs a steel journal pin at 290 RPMs against two stationary v-blocks. The pin is lubricated and placed in the v-block assembly at 165°F. An increasing load is then applied to the v-blocks. The result is a point of how much load/pressure/force it takes to stop the pin from rotating. The failure, or threshold point, is a good comparison of a lubricant's ability to reduce friction, heat and wear.
