Does LIQUID WRENCH stop squeaks?
Yes. LIQUID WRENCH will also reduce friction, reduce wear, and protect from corrosion.
Can I use LIQUID WRENCH on my garage door?
Yes. Our LIQUID WRENCH Garage Door Lube (part no. LGL10) is specifically designed for garage doors, sliding doors and roller doors.
Will LIQUID WRENCH harm my car’s paint?
LIQUID WRENCH will not harm a standard OEM automotive paint finish, but it could damage after market paint finishes or aged OEM paints with deteriorated clear coatings. Pre test surface to be safe.
Will LIQUID WRENCH lubricants prevent rust?
Yes. All LIQUID WRENCH lubricants will help prevent metals from rusting. Maximum protection is provided by our Rust and Corrosion Inhibiting Lubricant (part no. LC9)
Can I use LIQUID WRENCH on a bicycle chain?
Yes. We do have a chain lube that is a fast drying compound that leaves little residue for long lasting wet lubrication. Also, our dry lubricant is very useful on a bicycle chain for extra-dusty environments, helping minimize dust and dirt pickup.
What does PTFE mean?
Polytetrafluoroethylene. It is added to lubricate and makes the lubricant super slippery and long lasting.
Will LIQUID WRENCH help me loosen a bolt previously treated with a thread locking compound?
Yes. We do recommend you apply heat prior to the use of LIQUID WRENCH to soften the thread locking compound.
Can I use LIQUID WRENCH on PVC?
For plastic on plastic applications, like PVC, we recommend the use of a dry lube that will reduce wear. Our LIQUID WRENCH Silicone Spray can also be used for plastic-on-plastic lubrications where a wet lubricating film is desired.
Do LIQUID WRENCH products work well in all weather conditions?
Yes. LIQUID WRENCH products are designed for all common use temperatures from well below zero to over 200º F, depending upon the formula. Please consult SDS for details or call our customer service dept 1-866-WRENCH7.
What’s the difference between a grease and a lubricant?
Greases are usually in a tube or tub, so that they can be applied through the use of a grease gun or other tool. Greases are higher viscosity, semi-solid materials, with thickeners to hold the grease in place which allows for long term, harsh-condition lubrication. Liquid lubricants do not typically contain thickening materials like greases, allowing them to be a less viscous, flow-able liquid. Liquid lubricants can be sprayed from a can or squirted out through a dropper bottle. Either way, they are easily applied in tight spaces and are less visible than a grease would be. This makes lubricants useful for many indoor and outdoor applications.
I remember my grandpa used LIQUID WRENCH. How long has LIQUID WRENCH been around?
LIQUID WRENCH dates back to 1941. It’s always been made in the USA and is now manufactured right outside of Charlotte in Indian Trail, North Carolina.
What’s the difference between LIQUID WRENCH and other lubricants?
Our technology is designed, manufactured, and sold by RSC Chemical Solutions. We have an in-house team of chemists that formulate our products based on consumer research and proven with extensive testing.
As an example, our LIQUID WRENCH line contains Cerflon® which is a ceramically reinforced PTFE for superior lubrication properties.
CERFLON® is a registered trademark and brand owned by CERAMIC REINFORCED TECHNOLOGIES.
Are LIQUID WRENCH lubricants safe on all surfaces?
Our products are safe on most metal and plastic surfaces, but should avoid being sprayed on woods, cloth or other materials prone to staining. Please refer to our SDS (Safety Data Sheet) and label instructions for more specific information or call our customer service dept 1-866-WRENCH7. As a precaution, we recommend pre-testing a small area of the surface that is out of sight.
LIQUID WRENCH is safe on all paints, epoxies, or carbon fibers, but performance may vary depending upon the quality of the surface being treated. We recommend pre-testing prior to application.

Why did my aerosol can stop spraying?
An aerosol can may stop spraying when there is no more propellant (gas) left in the can, most likely due to expired product more than 2 years past the date of manufacture. This is among the most frequent failures of any aerosol product. Regardless, if you are experiencing this problem please call our customer service team for assistance at 1-866-WRENCH7.
What’s the difference between a penetrating and a lubricating oil?
Penetrating oils are used to free stuck nuts, bolts, locks, etc. that usually contain rust and corrosion. Lubricating oils are used to prevent and protect those parts from becoming stuck in the first place, while also quieting squeaks or noise that comes from metal parts rubbing together.
