TS-264 is designed for lubricating any type of rail that, in particular, may result in the lubricant's becoming immersed in water. Examples of applications include skidding vessels into the water from a shipyard or skidder ways of offshore drilling rigs where grease may be washed overboard during cleanup.

TS-264 is environmentally safe according to the test criteria developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.* TS-264 contains low friction, non-petroleum oils, molybdenum disulfide, and other solids to combine biodegradability with superior lubricating qualities. Once skidding activity is complete, the biodegradable TS-264 Skid Grease can be washed off for safer personnel activities in the skidder area.

How many pails do you need?
1. Calculate in feet. V=a x h
Where: v= volume; h= height in feet of film of grease applied; a= area coverage in square feet; p= 0.65 cubic feet of TS-264 per pail.
2. Divide: v/p to obtain number of 5 gallon pails required.
* Passed: Acute Toxicity to Mysidopsis bahia, by the Water-Soluble Fraction of lubricating Solid, conducted according to methods specified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which were modified for petroleum-based solids (EPA: Neff, J.M. and J.W. Anderson, 1981) 96-hour static nonrenewable definitive test.
* Passed: Determination of "Free Oil" of a lubricating solid by use of a Static Sheen Test, conducted according to methods originally specified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA, 1993), but which had been modified.
