This is PROFESSIONAL GRADE ...#500 cSt Viscosity (thickness) which is much thicker than the 'spray' and 'thin tube nozzle' applicators that are significantly thinner in order to get through their nozzles. The thinner the viscosity, the faster the evaporation. RULE OF THUMB: Double the cSt...Double the time between applications.
This works out to $3.47 per ounce (including shipping)!! Compare that to the small 1/2 ounce 'tubes' that cost over $12 per ounce.

Why 100% Pure Silicone?
Regardless who you buy your silicone from, be ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN that it is 100% silicone (see our spec sheet in the pictures). Other silicones are petroleum based and can actually damage your treadmill. I can't stress that enough.
Why Our Prices Are So Low?
We buy in bulk and keep our margins as low as possible.
How Long Should I Expect My Treadmill To Last?
Useful life of a treadmill is a function of usage, environment and maintenance. It has been our experience that by lubricating between the walking belt and the deck will significantly improve the useful life (see below). You should expect to lubricate that area with a minimum of 4 ounces per year.
How To Determine If My Treadmill Needs Lubrication?
VERY IMPORTANT !! Everyone's treadmill and environment is different. Humidity, condition of the belt and usage are the 3 main variables to consider. Anyone telling you that a 1/2 ounce or 1 ounce application will last you a year is total nonsense!! There is only one way to know if your treadmill is properly lubricated and you need to check this monthly. Do the following:
Take your fingertips and slide them between the running belt the deck- to the center. If your fingertips come back shinny, you're ok. If not, it needs a lubrication. If you aren't sure, lubricate it !! It's far better to have it over 'lubed' than 'dry'. If you feel cracks or roughness on the deck area, it is a clear indicator that the deck is overheating from too much friction and definitely needs more lubrication!
How Often Should I Expect To Lubricate?
I instruct my customers to lubricate every 3 months unless the above indicates not to (which means it's probably being used as a coat rack).
How Much Lubricant Should I Apply?
Here's where the customer needs to understand the reality. It takes a full ounce to adequately lubricate a deck! A typical treadmill with normal use needs at least one ounce every 3 months. That's a MINIMUM of 4 ounces per year.
Why Buy From Us?
The customer really has nowhere to go except to buy online. And there is a huge markup because of that. We buy all raw materials in bulk quantities and sell to our customers at a discount.
Why Lubricating a Treadmill Is So Important!
My company has been assembling and repairing treadmills over the past 9 years for a national retail company. One of the most consistent problems that my customers run into is they don't lube the treadmill deck nearly enough. If there is no lubrication between the walking belt and the deck, there is serious friction that develops between them. This results in the following:
-the laminated deck starts to de-laminate due to the added resistance heat
-as the de-lamination builds up, it starts eating away at the walking belt
-plus, the rollers and motor have to work much harder to maintain the speed because of the added resistance
-the electronics try to maintain all of the coordinated signals and get confused and starts sending false signals to the control board.
-basically, what happens is a domino effect whereby either the belt wears out or the control board dies.
