Silicone Grease 2012 NSF 61 is a 100% Silicone Grease Compound with an NLGI #2 (medium stiffness).  It is formulated with PDMS Silicone / Polydimethylsiloxane (CAS # 63148‐62‐9) and inert silica filler.    Silicone Grease 2012 is characterized by its wide service temperature range, high temperature stability, low temperature stability, high dielectric strength, excellent lubricity, inertness to virtually all rubber and plastic surfaces, and effectiveness in insulating against corrosion and moisture.


Silicone Grease 3005 is inert to virtually all substrates with the exception of silicone rubber. *   It is widely used for lubricating O‐rings, gaskets, valves and seals as well as surfaces that require excellent lubricating properties over long periods without drying out. It is not recommended for metal‐to‐metal lubrication or on surfaces that will be painted or finished.   However, it is an excellent assembly lubricant for metal‐to‐plastic and metal‐to‐rubber applications.

*Swelling may occur

Silicone Grease 2012 is registered with the NSF and meets the requirements of NSF 61 /ANSI Standard 61 for water portable applications such as manufacturing of water faucets, O‐rings & valves, water treatment products, water filtration products and plumbing productsthat require an NSF 61 lubricant.

Meets the requirements of the following FDA regulations:
FDA 21 CFR 175.300 Resinous and Polymeric Coatings
FDA 21 CFR 178.3570 Lubricant with Incidental Food Contact


  • Wide service temperature range & high resistance to oxidation
  • Excellent lubricant and sealant for harsh environments such as down‐hole and subsea environments
