F1 Cork & Slide Grease
Isolates the collecting condensate from the tuning slides and thereby prevents corrosion and jamming of the inner slides. It is a relatively firm grease with the exact consistence needed for the slides to operate properly. Often used also as a vacuum grease for not so precise slides.
At the same time. it is also an ideal grease for the care of tenon joints on woodwind instruments. It protects the corks from moisture, remains smooth and all this by ideal lubricating properties.

How to use Cork and Tuning Slide Grease
Before applying the grease, always make sure that the tenons and tuning slides are clean, free from any small dirt particles and old grease. Do not apply to Flute joints, we have a special grease stick for this purpose. And do not use on trombone slides.
Whether applying to tuning slides or the tenons of wood wind instruments, the method is the same. Scrape a little grease out of the tub with your index finger and rub it between your finger and thumb. Then rub it gently around the cleaned tenons or tuning slides. Always use sparingly, just enough to have the desired effect. After replacing the joints or slides, wipe away any excess grease.
