Gold Lube-Gel is composed of natural occurring graphite that has been graded for particle size distribution. A typical analysis provides 90% minus mesh. Graphite has been used for years in the drilling fluid industry and has proven to be very effective.
However, powdered graphite and derivatives are difficult to work with in the field due to water insolubility and fine particle size. Blowing dust is a hazard and uncomfortable to handle. Gold Lube-Gel epitomizes the advantages of graphite and removes the disadvantages with a unique patented suspension agent that allows a higher concentration of solids than most liquid suspensions and little or no sagging.
Gold Lube-Gel is completely environmentally safe.
