McLube Sailkote Dry Lubricant

Sailkote is the high-tech, dry lubricant that makes sails, hulls, rigging, deck hardware, and anything that moves on your boat run smoother, work more efficiently, and last longer. Sailkote is the only dry lubricant (currently available) that has been specifically designed for marine use. This translucent liquid sprays or wipes on and completely dries in seconds. Sailkote is typically five times as effective and last much longer than wax, oil, silicone, or Teflon based lubricants and unlike those products it won't attract dirt, water or other contaminants that eventually degrade lubrication performance.

McLube Sailkote can be used anywhere there is friction, while it is particularly suited for the marine environment, it words equally well in non-marine settings, from the workshop to the ski slopes.
