The raw materials of Doctor’s Products special lubricants are some of the 2,000 NASA Military Spec. lubricants. They are costly but represent the pinnacle in space age technology lubricants developed for the NASA Space Program and have been thoroughly tested and certified for direct application to musical instrument use.
These lubricants bond to the molecular structure of the metal, leave no residue or varnish because they do not evaporate, have anti-rust and anti-corrosion additives, will not harm wood, and do not migrate or change viscosity with great changes in temperature. Shear rates of the oils are four times greater than even the best automotive synthetic oils giving the protection of very viscous oils with ¼ the viscosity, coefficients of friction are ½ those of the best petroleum lubricants.
For cleaning a new generation of citrus-based solvents precludes the need for volatile and dangerous organic solvents and dissolves grease better while protecting the environment and the technician.
Even the best “old line” specialty woodwind key oils and greases used in the trade do not compare with the outstanding characteristics and performance of the NASA aerospace lubricants.
