Computer-friendly Grease

T-grease 880 is a new high-performance, silicone-based thermal grease from Laird Technologies (formerly Thermagon), designed to solve overheating issues in advanced computer chips, graphic processing units and ASICs. The company says the product is RoHS compliant, has high thermal conductivity and very low thermal resistance, and will not dry out, pump out or separate over the long term. Computers, servers, automotive and telecom applications are the target market for the grease which, at under $200 per kg, Laird says costs 30 to 50 percent less than comparable options.

Nusol Coolant Keeps Fresh

Chemtool has launched an innovative line of metalworking fluids under the Nusol brand – a patent-pending technology it says is completely new to the metalworking arena. The fluid has been field tested with excellent results, Chemtool says. It cuts down on mist and virtually eliminates VOCs; rejects tramp oil; acts like a synthetic without stickiness or lubricity limitations; and is hard-water stable in excess of 100 grains with no loss of corrosion protection or emulsion stability. Nusol uses no sulfonate or amide, yet is biologically stable and will not go rancid, the company added. Phone: Skip Legenza, (262)723-6590. E-mail:

Durable Gas Engine Oil

Just in time for winter, Imperial Oil has rolled out a new version of Essolube GMA Plus 40 – Canadas bestselling natural gas engine oil. This new product will allow for longer oil drain intervals than any other lubricant weve seen in 30 years of field tests, said the companys technical manager, oil and gas, Karl Mrazek. Earlier versions worked on reducing piston and valve deposits and on varnish and corrosion control. This newest formula targets longer oil drain intervals, to help cut costs and improve efficiency.
