Product Description & Reviews
Sterling Oil Petrolatums are petroSterling Oil & Chemical's petrolatums are semi-solid homogeneous mixtures of oily and waxy long chain non-polar hyrdrocarbons. Similar to petroleum jelly and can be classified as a pure grease that doesn't contain any metals or any other impurities. These petrolatums are used in the auto and related industries, rubber processing, printing inks, shoe polishes, and candles. Petrolatums are odorless and tasteless and range in color from white to amber. They are also used in the formulation of food products, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics. The most important properties of Sterling's petrolatum are their purity and complete solubility in auto factory-fill fluids such as engine oils, transmission fluids, power steering fluids, and more, without any detrimental after-effects in the running and performance of the vehicles. For this reason, General Motors specifies Sterling petrolatums as the primary lubricants to be used in assembling engine and transmissions where parts are needed to be held together temporarily - such a slippery agent to help parts fit into each other in transmission housings; to hold gaskets and other parts in place; and also in a semi-molten state for coating gaskets on engines and transmissions as they are being assembled. As such, GM corporate part #9985007 for both Amber and G1670 grades is the "go to" for GM Powertrain engine and transmission plants in the US, Canada, Mexico, Europe, and eastern countries.
