Grease needs to remain where it’s put, even under load. It needs to be resistant to breakdown, and also be clean and easy to apply. Finish Line's Ceramic Grease ticks all the boxes.
The name comes from the addition to the mix of micron-sized ceramic particles that “reinforce” the grease's Teflon structure, Finish Line says. As well as increasing durability, this also makes it suitable for use as anti-seize on seat posts, stems and crank bolts.
You don't get much for your money though, and the 60g tube gets used up quickly if you’re building bikes from scratch. For heavy users it's also available in 1 pound tubs, 35 pound pails, and 400 pound drums!
