What is the difference between lithium grease and white lithium grease?

White lithium grease vs Lithium grease. “White Lithium” Grease has fewer additives, that’s the only difference other than visibility. The “Lithium” is just the thickening agent. The base oil is typically Mineral Oil, which is relatively low concentration, but I prefer to avoid using mineral oil around O-Rings.

What is white lithium grease good for?

White lithium grease is used to keep components moving smoothly, free of friction and seizing. You can also apply it preventatively to protect against rust and corrosion. White lithium grease can be used to: Lubricate car door hinges.

Is white lithium grease the same as silicone grease?
