Baader Arctic-cool Machine Grease from -55C up to +30C is an important maintenance aid for astronomical mounts and telescope mirror fittings.

Every temperature range and mechanical purpose requires matched greases , having the necessary viscosity, thixotropic consistency, longevity and resistance against ageing, outgassing and decomposition. Baader offer greases, that have proven their outstanding quality over decades be it Antarctic or Desert application.

One tub, containing 10 cm3, is sufficient for one complete refurbishing operation on the RA and Dec worms and wheels of a mount having 15kg up to 25kg payload capacity. If you have to work on bigger mounts or if you re-built a mount after de-mounting, two tubs may be required.

Baader offer four machine greases:

Baader #1 Teflon-brown: from -15C up to +55C:
Very good dampening characteristics, very suited for enabling "less than perfect" mount drives to run smoothly. Not suitable for permanent use below -10 C.

Baader #2 Teflon-white: from -25C up to +40:
This is the grease Baader use the most when refurbishing quality mounts with brilliant slipping-properties, ultra low slip-stick tendency and longlife-stability suitable for all European temperature-ranges.

Baader #3 Arctic-cool: from -55up to +30C:
Excellent grease quality for low temperature application as prevalent at polar-circle regions not suitable for permanent use at temperatures above 25C

Baader #4 Ultra-Range: from -50C up to +60C
Wide stretched synthetic grease with constant viscosity across an extremely large temperature-range. Especially suitable for use in the mirror sliding fittings of SC-telescopes (i.e. Celestron), as the grease does not produce any outgassing, does not react to vapour pressure, does not harden over time and does not decompose into a solid and a liquid part over time.
