OMC Triple Guard Grease

I've searched the internet and have been unable to find out if the Triple Guard Grease contains teflon.  My

30HP ETEC is running solely in saltwater which I know the Triple Guard is rated for saltwater but I've heard the

Mercury 2-4-C and the Mercury Special 101 are good as well since they contain teflon.  Can someone please advise?

Re: OMC Triple Guard Grease

My understanding is that the Mercury 2,4,C now contains Teflon, but have not heard anything about Teflon in Triple Guard or Merc 101. All are good products and have different applications but can be used interchangeably in some applications such as protecting propshaft splines or steering rams.


The Triple Guard is saltwater rated, sticks to an object without washing off, and  lubricates well without separating or hardening over time like some other greases do. I've seen water pump bolts and gearcase bolts with Triple Guard on them that still can be removed easily even after 5 years in saltwater.
