A light, oil-based lubricant ideally suited for slabbing hard material such as agate or jade, Rio Saw Lube keeps your blade cool during cutting.

Handling and Storage

Use in a well-ventilated area. Do not mix with oxidizers. Store in a closed container in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area. Water contamination should be avoided. Avoid exposure to high temperatures. Product contains Napthenic petroleum distillates. Hazardous decompositions or by-products of carbon, nitrogen, or sulfur oxides should not be inhaled.

Apply Rio Saw Lube directly onto the blade. The amount of lubricant depends on your individual saw. Refer to your owner’s manual for instructions on application of lubricant.
