Lube For Life Cartridges

Lube For Life Cartridges

Thomson Lube for Life cartridges provide continuous, maintenance-free lubrication. Each cartridge contains a microporous polymer that diffuses oil when the bearing is in motion. The oil migrates through capillary action to the shaft in contact with the polymer. The polymer also acts as a sponge and reabsorbs the oil during motion. This prevents excessive buildup of the lubricant on the shaft and minimizes dripping, which is common when applying oil manually.
