Unlike wd40 it's a lubricant.

So its not better, its different.

WD40 will always be king in my eyes.

It's not better than wd40. It's just different. They have different applications. This is also a lubricant

Of course WD40 is a lubricant, why do you say it's not?

Because it's not, perhaps? Wd40 is a water displacement fluid, and is useful to release things. However it does not keep them lubricated once released. You'd ideally need to apply grease, 3-in1 or something similar to keep them running smoothly. Make sense?

Thank you for contacting the WD-40 Company concerning the use of our product
WD-40 contains cleaning solutions, and for this reason we do not recommend
using WD-40 first and then applying another lubricant.

WD-40 can swell rubber or buna rubber gaskets when the gasket is immersed in
the fluid. If the fluid is sprayed on and wiped off, the gasket will not
swell. This swelling will not ruin the gasket, however it will swell the
rubber. We use buna gaskets in every single can of WD-40 aerosol. We build
the valves in our cans with this swelling in mind. After swelling the gasket
retains its integrity.

Thank you again for contacting the WD-40 Company. Please let us know if we
may be of further assistance.

Best regards,
Eva Zabowski

Of course WD40 is a lubricant (it is sold as a multi purpose product), it is just not the right lubricant for the sort of stuff that needs heavier oils like 3 in 1 or thick grease. It is about 25% light mineral oil plus a large quantity of solvent. The manufacturer of my door locks recommends using wd40 to lubricate them (must not use graphite because they contain stainless steel components).

It wouldn't be my first choice of penetrating oil, as there are more effective products, or for cleaning my bicycle chain as the oil in it would thin any chain lubricant I applied after it, so it wouldn't be as effective.

Incidentally, GT85 is owned by WD40.

GT85 smells better than WD40. 'nuff said.

WD40 isn't and never has been a lube. GT85 is.


WD = water displacing. 40 = 40, I dunno. Oh look, wikipedia to the rescue! "Water Displacement, 40th formula".

It's not a lubricant - to be fair it's oil so obviously it can make things slide around a bit better but not for very long. GT-85 is a bona-fide lubricant "with PTFE" (it says on the can).

Here this is pretty good!

Also, good deal. Everyone should have a can of both in the cupboard.

Why not go straight to the horse's mouth, wd40. wd40.com/coo…cts

"WD-40® Multi-Use Product protects metal from rust and corrosion, penetrates stuck parts, displaces moisture and lubricates almost anything"

GT85 also claims to be a water displacant and to do most things that wd40 does, doesn't mean it's not also a lubricant. It also contains a large amount of solvent and mineral oil (less solvent than wd40 and a different mineral oil - I think I read wd40 contains a blend of lubricating oils and gt85 has spindle oil). It also contains a small amount of PTFE, but if you want a dry film PTFE lubricant, that's what you should buy, not gt85.

Well ok, I'll eat a bit of my hat but not the whole thing

It won't stain things yellow.
