4x More Lubrication
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
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.

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.
