Gardena, CA — the clear lube is made from live plant derivatives and not from petroleum. It is stable at over 400 F, being higher a temperature than standard petroleum oils. It remains viscous at less than 0 F, which is 32 degree F less than the freezing point of water. Since it has medium-heavy viscosity, it is ideal for barrier formation between moving parts. The component liquids are made in the USA.
It is supplied in a 2.25-ounce HDPE bottle as SKU 7237 and in a 6 ml sample bottle as SKU 7295. The larger bottle has a flip-up pour spout, and the sample bottle has a screw-on cap. Both are made in the USA.
The larger container is for retail shelves. While the smaller container may be retailed, it is provided for free with end-customer orders or sold to them online direct. See photos of the retail packaging at http://www.rigelproducts.com/products.html.
