Slipstream TW 2 Gel is a tacky white gel that is formulated for incidental food contact only and contact with food should be avoided wherever possible. Used in this way, it meets the requirements of The Food Safety Act 1990.

In use, it clings tenaciously to metal surfaces, withstanding extreme pressure and metal-to-metal contact.

TW 2 Gel is compatible with most commonly used mechanical seal materials. Its hydrophobic nature and very wide temperature stability range (from -10°C to +200°C) enable it to withstand pressure washing with cold or boiling water, brine or steam. This gel is suitable for use on high-speed open gears, linear bearings and sliding rails that are sterilised or washed regularly. It is also useful in drying kilns and areas where high temperatures would break down conventional lubricants.

TW 2 Gel is free from the polycyclic aromatic components present in many petroleum-based lubricants; it is not liable to cause skin problems such as dermatitis, folliculitis or skin cancer.

Heavy industrial lubricant users have found that this gel's ability to cling to metal surfaces, even in such difficult applications as high speed open gears, coupled with its good extreme wear properties, can greatly extend the life of heavily loaded machinery. But TW 2 Gel does more than just take care of machinery; as mentioned above, its freedom from polycyclic aromatic components safeguards the well being of maintenance engineers and machine operators.
