CRC Food Grade 5.56 is an effective and efficient multi-use product that penetrates, lubricates and loosens rusted parts, prevents corrosion and displaces moisture. The highly refined white mineral oil forms a thin film that lubricates moving parts for smooth action and silences annoying squeaks and squeals. Superior penetrating power breaks through rust and corrosion, loosens rusted parts, displaces water from wet equipment and cleans away scale and dirt. It protects metals from corrosion caused by humidity and other corrosive atmospheres.

Temperature range from -20°C to +150°C (continuous), +170°C (intermittent). MPI Approved C15. NZ AsureQuality assessment for food/beverage including dairy factories with incidental contact.
