BIKE BUTTER is a high performance lubricating and protective paste which contains castor oil and high levels of micronised PTFE. It is highly acclaimed for use on threads to reduce corrosion and is perfect to use on gear and brake cables and on shifter and brake lever pivot points. Due to its high 'paste' viscosity it can be used where reliable operation is required for extended periods. It repels moisture and stays in place working where it needs to work and keeping dirt out.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
- Apply a small small amount of BIKE BUTTER to the surface which requires long-term protection and lubrication
- Assemble parts
- Wipe away excess BIKE BUTTER

CORROSION PREVENTION
There are many contact points on a bicycle where galvanic corrosion can occur e.g. threads between alloy and steel components. This 'dissimilar metal corrosion' is caused when one of the metals in the couple becomes the anode and corrodes faster than it would all by itself, while the other becomes the cathode and corrodes slower than it would alone. For galvanic corrosion to occur, three conditions must be present:
- electrochemically dissimilar metals must be present
- these metals must be in electrical contact
- The metals must be exposed to an electrolyte
