0 out of 5




HT 5 Gel – Food Grade 2.5KG Pail NSF H1 – NIGL 0 – Synthetic – This product was specifically formulated for incidental food contact and to be used to lubricate upper punch heads on tablet making machines. It is also a high viscosity, sticky semi-fluid with the ability to stay where applied and provide protection.


This product coats the metal surfaces with a tenacious film of lubricant which reduces metal to metal contact and effectively reducing friction and extending the working life of components. This product contains sub-micronic particles of PTFE, the most slippery of dry lubricants, these PTFE particles repel each other, but bond themselves into tiny imperfections in the working surface. With this in mind the coating is too thin to affect working clearances, but it protects the surfaces from impact and metal to metal contact. This reduces wear and tear and prolongs component life.


HT5 Gel is formulated for a vast variety of tablet press and pill press machines. If you have any questions about if this product is suitable for yours please contact us

This product is formulated from synthetic hydrocarbons; it contains no petroleum mineral hydrocarbons, and is free from substances listed as ‘hazardous to health’ in the latest C.O.S.H.H. regulations.
