I need to get some grease for my next tank build. I'm looking for a non-spray grease, that's plastic friendly.
Does anyone have any suggestions they can recommend?

Thanks Glen, I'll look in to it. Where do you get yours?

I think I got it from Canadian Tire, but it doesn't show on their web site inventory.

Canadian Tire used to sell it, but don't now.

It is sold in the U.S. http://www.agscompany.com/lubricants/industrial/201

I called them from the office today, they said it was good for plastic, but were sketchy on current retailers in Canada.

It contains mineral oil, here is a quote on mineral oil; " Mineral-oil-based lubricants don’t attack most plastic materials and offer excellent performance for the dollar in general plastics applications."

Source; http://motionsystemdesign.com/mechanical-pt/lubrication-tips-plastic-gears-0894/

I am not saying it is the best or only product for the job, though.

If someone has another suggestion, I'm interested.

....and, actually, there's another tube I found in my model bench drawer; Permatex Ultra Slick Synthetic Grease, says good for plastic right on the tube.

I use a synthetic grease that has no effect on plastics.

Thanks for the suggestion boys.

I think I'll pop over to Canadian Tire this weekend and see what they got.

I use regular 3in1 oil on bushings and bearings, and Lubriplate white grease on the gears. Super smooth.

Hi, you don't need special grease. "Vaseline" is the best choice!

Actually Vaseline is not so great. It breaks down to almost liquid in heat. I once made the mistake of using Vaseline when building a bicycle years ago. In the heat of the summer, it literallty ran out of all of the bearing cup surfaces.

I would not be a fan of using vaseline...so many synthetics that will far exceed any of our needs out there.

I just happened to be reading the applications section of our literally dozens of types of aviation grease / lube here at work... and was reminded of this post!

Lubriplate 130A-AA is specifically designed for open gear, medium temperature applications. Its sticky, and manages to STAY on my motor pinion gears. I've lubed up my various 4:1 gearboxes with this stuff and theyre still thick with nice, gooey grease Razz

http://www.lubriplate.com/Products/Multi-Purpose-Greases/100-130-Series.aspx

It's petroleum based so I'm not sure if it's plastic safe.
