Andersen Winch Grease is a high quality silicone/Teflon® grease product. Most other types of grease, including “marine grease” are not suitable for lubrication of winches. Non-suitable grease products can cause malfunction, which could result in fatal injuries for the user and others.
Due to the best choice of materials and high precision in manufacturing, Andersen recommend for normal use, only to dismantle, clean and lubricate the winch once every second year. Under extensive use, such as racing, charter or blue water sailing, it is recommended to lubricate the winch at least once every year.
