Pure FM is a premium quality, food-grade, synthetic grease specially developed for use as a lubricant in applications where there is the possibility of incidental food contact. It is recommended for use in food processing, bottling and sanitary equipment operating at low or high temperatures.

Pure FM is manufactured with synthetic polyalphaolefin (PAO) base oil thickened with silica gel. It is compounded with special food-grade additives to provide oxidation resistance, rust and corrosion protection, and wear protection. It has excellent resistance to water washout and provides excellent rust and corrosion protection in applications where the equipment is exposed to fruit acids, chemicals or saline solutions.

Pure FM meets the requirements of U.S. FDA Regulation 21 CFR 178.3570 and former 1998 USDA H1 guidelines for incidental food contact. It is registered by NSF International as an H1 lubricant.

  • Machinery used in canneries, meat and poultry plants
  • Food processing equipment
  • Bottling plants
  • Seamers
  • Industrial applications requiring a transparent, nonstaining grease
  • Applications where water pollution laws prohibit lubricants from leaving an oil sheen on the surface of the water, such as dredging and immersed cables.
    Note: Surfaces coated with Pure FM will not leave an oil sheen when immersed in water, unlike conventional mineral-oil based greases.
