Pinewood Derby Graphite Lube

Speed is, of course, the most important thing when racing your Pinewood Derby Car. But how do you go about amping up your wooden creation? Weight and design can only do so much, you need that little extra to give your game a more competitive edge. Every angle needs to be covered for the devoted Pinewood Derby Racer and you can’t forgo what lube you use to grease your wheels with Pinewood Derby Graphite Lube.

So many graphite lubricants are blended with additives to decrease friction under extreme environments, but we want the best for our customers.  We are committed to quality over cost. Our Pinewood Derby Graphite Lube is 100% graphite, go ahead and test it for yourself! Our dry graphite derby lube uses graphite’s natural layering lamellae (plate-like structures) to ensure a friction less roll. These layers can be built on top of each other like a stack of paper.  Addition of additives such as moly, tungsten do not allow building of layers since these additives are only single layer structures.  It’s like trying to but a baseball between two sheets of paper.  Then putting more paper on top of that.  We want as many stacks of paper as possible!  Even on the microscopic level, we’re gearing to race through the finish line first with our Pinewood Derby Graphite Lube.

When you dust the wheels and axles of your pinewood derby you’re also protecting your creation from friction, filling every nook and cranny with graphite to guarantee repeat wins. If dusting the gear isn’t the way you want to meet the finish line you can also turn our Pinewood Derby Graphite Lube into a paste, mixing our graphite dry lube with 99% rubbing alcohol.   Another point of versatility with our proprietary blend is that it can work on a rougher surface at a low speed or on a smoother surface at high speeds. This is because of the different sizes of the graphite particles, the large particles aiding on a rough run while the micro-particles giving your derby an edge on a smoother track.
