NEOX D dramatically reduces wear to sterntube bearings in the event of seawater ingress.

NEOX D is a high viscosity emulsifiable sterntube lubricant. It is a grease-like lubricant at ambient temperatures and is applied using a grease applicator. It is sometimes used with compression seals and is recommended for the lubrication of trunnion bearings on some older Rolls Royce (Brown Brothers) retractable fin stabilisers. It is not recommended for use with elastomer lip stern seals.

NEOX D is primarily recommended for compression or older face seals with non-circulatory oil feed systems.
