    It is a common question for someone to ask what the correct grease is for a particular application.
    Of course there's no such thing as "one size fits all" when it comes to grease.
    Hands up, how many people can say that they can look at a manufacturer's data sheet and compare one product to another on the basis of the specification as it's writ on the paper..?

    Here's a crib sheet "seven tests for selecting the right grease" that tries to take a lot of the mystery out of the process.

    The biggest problem with grease is people not using it!
