CASSIDA GREASE MD 2 is a high performance silicone lubricant specially developed for the grease lubrication and sealing of tapes, valves and fittings with EPDM seals (ethylene-propylene-diene rubber) in the food and beverage processing and packaging industry, with good resistance to hot water, steam and disinfectant solutions.
It is based on a very stable synthetic thickener and base fluids chosen for their ability to meet the stringent requirements of the food and beverage industry.
Registered by NSF (Class H1) for use where there is potential for incidental food contact. Produced according to FLT Quality Standards, in facilities where HACCP audit and Good Manufacturing Practice have been implemented and form part of the quality and hygiene management systems ISO 9001 and ISO 21469.
• Lubricant and sealing grease for taps, valves and fittings with EPDM (ethylene-propylene-diene rubber) seals
• Recommended for the lubrication of all sorts of taps, flow meters and fittings used for the handling of water, drinks and beer, including drum filling inflow valves
• Generally applicable for tap cock or spindle valves and for rubber seals such as sleeves, membranes, O-rings seals and lip seals

The information shown on this side is based on the experience and expertise of the FUCHS Group in the development and manufacture of lubricants and represents the current state of the art. The performance of our products can be influenced by a series of factors, especially the specific use, the method of application, the operational environment, component pretreatment, possible external contamination, etc. For this reason, universally valid statements about the function of our products are not possible. Our products must not be used in aircraft/spacecraft or parts thereof. This does not apply if the products can be removed again before the components are fitted in an aircraft/spacecraft. The information given here represents general, non-binding guidelines. No warranty expressed or implied is given concerning the properties of the product or its suitability for any given application. We therefore recommend that you consult a FUCHS Group application engineer to discuss application conditions and the performance criteria of the products before the products are used. It is the responsibility of the user to test the functional suitability of the products and to use them with the corresponding care. Our products are subject to continuous further development. We therefore retain the right to change our product range, the products, and their manufacturing processes as well as all details on this side at any time and without warning, provided that no customer-specific agreements exist that require otherwise.
