DuPont™ Teflon® Multi-Use Lubricant


PLEASE NOTE THAT AS OF OCTOBER 2011, THE DUPONT™ TEFLON® MULTI-USE DRY, WAX FORMULA WAS MODIFIED. Many of our loyal customers have been purchasing DuPont™ Teflon® Multi-Use for nearly a decade. We recently upgraded the formula to be a semi-dry lubricant no longer featuring the “dirt-resistant, dry-wax” feature. You will notice the most recent cans that appear on shelf do not contain the dry-wax claim on the label. Many users have reached out wondering where their dry-wax formulation went.

If you want to obtain that same dry-wax formulation, you should switch to DuPont™ Teflon® Chain-Saver. This product contains the same Teflon® fluoropolymer, molybdenum and wax mixture that users have come to appreciate for its wear protection, water repellency and dirt resistance.

DuPont™ Teflon® Chain-Saver Lubricant may be found at Wal-Mart (1,400 stores nationwide — check availability online). Lowe's (4 oz. squeeze bottles only), Northern Tool, Mills Fleet Farm, online at and at many specialty motorcycle shops (through Tucker Rocky distribution).

This light semi-dry lubricant features a calcium sulfonate thickener and DuPont™ Teflon® fluoropolymer for enhanced wear and corrosion protection. Use to eliminate squeaks, prevent rust and protect moving parts.

  • Clean, low-odor film is much more user friendly than conventional heavy oils, and this film will not attract and absorb abrasive contaminants at the same rate as a heavier oil
  • Temperature range: provides lubricating qualities at -20°F up to 250°F (-29°C up to 121°C), with intermittent spikes as high as 300°F (149°C)
  • Provides superior anti-stick and EP properties
  • Outstanding adhesion and long lubricant life
  • Water repelling, protects against rust and corrosion
  • O-ring safe and contains no silicones
  • Non-staining to most materials, low to no odor. Contains no Prop 65 ingredients
  • Very low surface tension; goes on wet to penetrate and evenly coat all frictional surfaces
  • Sets up with a clean, low-odor film which can be used indoors or outdoors
  • Features proprietary DuPont™ Teflon® fluoropolymer to provide enhanced moisture repellency and better protection against abrasive wear
  • Silicone-free film
  • Formulated with calcium sulfonate to deliver longer lubricant life, higher temperature stability and enhanced rust and corrosion protection



  • Precision parts where a very low coefficient of friction is required.
  • Parts that need to be re-lubricated and/or are used in extremely cold conditions.
  • High moisture applications where other lubricants either quickly wash off or do not provide adequate rust protection
  • Parts that need to be coated to prevent rust and corrosion
  • High RPM chains like motorcycle, ATV, Go-Kart where conventional heavier oils attract excessive amounts of abrasive contaminants. Multi-Use is O-Ring safe (Note: For chains used in extremely high contaminant environments, please use DuPont™ Chain Saver)
