​Most lubricants offered in the dental industry, including most major brands, are derived from a mineral oil base, which is inferior to Syntek in every measurable way. If your present lubricant is synthetic, it will be noted on the container.

​Syntek is superior to mineral oil in the following ways: Syntek provides higher film strength than mineral oil. This means less wear for your instruments. Syntek is unaffected by autoclaving. It will not break down, cause varnish buildup, or gel the way mineral oil will. It will not absorb water - mineral oil will. Syntek has passed all protocols including wear, free running rpm and sterilization by a leading bearing manufacturer. It is certified “Food Grade” and is safe for use in all dental applications. Syntek is a one step product. It is applied before sterilization to both clean and lubricate. There is no need to lubricate after sterilization! Instruments are contaminated when they are lubricated after sterilization. Syntek is formulated for use in all dental instruments including highspeeds, slowspeeds, electrics, hygiene handpieces, all attachments and nosecones.
