Nitro-9 on the Moon


The Story of Nitrochem Products and... their trip to the moon !

In 1969, the lubrication specifications for the Lunar Landing Module and Lunar Excursion Module required vacclaisocryptene (Vac5) - “the worlds only undersurface lubricant” - to be used. This mission had to succeed the first time. And it did!

The Vac5 used in the Lunar Modules is one of the key components of the ZX formula found in Nitrochem products. At Nitrochem Lubricants, we feel that if a product is good enough for NASA, then it should be available for our customers as well!

Has YOUR engine lubricant been to the moon?
