LANOX Lanolin Lubricant is a heavy duty, anti-moisture, anti-corrosion lubricant made with a high grade oil and lanolin base, with specialised chemical compounds. LANOX Is created with Lanolin, a natural wax found in animal wool, especially the wool from sheep, commonly referred as ‘WOOL FAT’ or ‘WOOL GREASE’. Lanolin has widespread uses, ranging from cosmetics, soaps and medical products to rust proofing and lubrication. Lanolin has been used in skin care and cosmetics as far back as 700BC, but in the late nineteenth century it was refined at a new level, giving us lanolin with of an extremely high quality. Although we make INOX, a quality anti-corrosion lubricant, there are areas where a lanolin based anti-corrosion lubricant like LANOX is sometimes better suited for the application at hand.

    Do you have any distributors in the Buffalo New York area where I can purchase this. I am in the Orlando Fla area and I have never used such a remarkable product. I work on Kawasaki mules and the rear axles become corroded in the rear brg so bad that I have hit them with a 16# sledge hammer and not break them loose. I put Lanox on them and after a few minutes I drive them out with a 2# hammer. That is no lie!! My son lives in the Buffalo area so I am trying to find him some up there rather tan shipping it to him. Thank you Jim Bishop Sr

  2. Hey guys,
    Need to protect aluminium hinges and stainless steel door holders.
    Am I better off using MX3 or MX4. The location is subject to heavy salt spray ( on the beach )

    Regards
    Roger

    • customer service Ashley says:

      Hi Roger,

      Thanks for the enquiry!

      I recommend Lanox MX4 around salt water, its our heavy duty lubricant and will protect against corrosion that little bit more.

    I purchased 2 x 750ml spray pump packs for protective use under our old Landcruiser. When I got home I found they had leaked and the packs were in poor condition. I called the office and everyone was more than very helpful. The problem was fixed completely to my satisfaction. If they are looking after the small users then it does show the company has the right CUSTOMER SERVICE ethics.
    I have used the LANOX MX4 and the INOX MX3 products from frozen bolts to rejuvenating rusty tools when my family leave them outside in the rain etc. I believe they are the best money for value products on the market. For me there may be bigger brand names but they do not often work as well as the INOX products.

    • customer service Ashley says:

      Hi Wayne,

      Thanks for the positive feedback, we did have a minor issue with the pump packs when they were first released but we have since fixed the problem.

      Cheers for the support.

  4. Hi there,
    The underside of my Land Rover discovery 4 (2010) is slowly seeing some rust on bolts. Which product would you recommend to spray underneath on steel, aluminium and plastic parts to protect from mud and elements?
    Thanks.

    • customer service Ashley says:

      Hi Jon,

      Thanks for the enquiry.

      LANOX MX4 has been used for this application for years and has given great results! Try to avoid your brakes and high temp areas like the the exhaust.

      I hope this helps.

      Regards – INOX team

  5. Blake Harvey says:

    Hi there,

    I do a lot of saltwater boating and have just purchased a new car. Is lanox suitable for under my car for rust proofing? Also would it cause sand to stick to the underbelly of the vehicle as well?

    Cheers
    Blake

    • customer service Ashley says:

      Hi Blake,

      Thanks for the enquiry!

      We usually recommend that you apply it 1-2 weeks before you plan on heading up the beach, this give’s the LANOX time to penetrate and form a coating on metal surfaces. Re-apply after you wash down the vehicle!

      I hope this helps.

      Regards – INOX Team

  6. Would you recommend MX3 or Lanox for coating steel training swords (federschwert and similar) between sessions?

    • customer service Ashley says:

      Hi Luke,

      Thanks for the enquiry.

      You could use either the INOX MX3 or the LANOX MX4. I would suggest the LANOX MX4 however, you will have no issues with either product.

      Regards – INOX Team

  7. Hello

    I have a powerboat that has exposed steel and aluminium fittings in the water. I use the boat in both salt and fresh water and want to protect the steel from salt and protect nuts and bolts corroding and being impossible to loosen.
    Would you recommend lanox mx4 or inox mx3 or either is fine?

    Thanks

    • customer service Ashley says:

      Hi Jake,

      Thanks for the enquiry!

      We recommend LANOX MX4 for this application, MX4 will protect all metal surfaces better than INOX MX3 and will prevent electrolysis between dis-similar metals.

      I hope this helps and stay safe on the water!

      Regards – INOX Team

  8. Which product would you recommend for protecting hawks and trowels in the rendering business? I need something that can resist the acrylic polymers in the render as well as something that won’t wash off so easy when cleaned regularly in a bucket of water.

    • customer service Ashley says:

      Hi Matthew,

      Thanks for the enquiry.

      LANOX MX4 is perfect for this application, apply when the tools are dry, this gives the LANOX a chance to penetrate the steel.

      I hope this helps.

      Regards – INOX Team

  9. Hi

    I was wondering if Lanox would be suitable as a protective leather dressing for motocross boots? Will Lanox harm leather?

    Regards
    John

    • customer service Ashley says:

      Hi John,

      Thanks for the enquiry.

      Yes, Lanox is fine on leather! I personally use Lanox for this specific application, on both dirt and road motorcycles.

      Be sure to wipe off any over spray and try to avoid the sole of the boots.

      Regards – INOX Team

  10. Hi guys,

    Just wanted a recommendation for an oil lubricant for my diamond sharpening stones. There is a biodegradable one on the market called Ballistol, but I am after an Australian made version. I want to use as a cleaning oil to float the metal particles off the diamond stone.

    Regards,
    Alex

    • customer service Ashley says:

      Hi Alex,

      Thanks for the enquiry.

      From my understanding the mentioned product is oil based which is similar to the INOX MX3 Original Formula, therefor this would be suitable. You could also use the INOX MX3 Food Grade, this has no odour.

      I hope this helps.

      Regards – INOX Team

  11. Hi There

    I just wanted to please ask can the MX4 LANOX be thinned?

    What would you recommend?

    Thanks Heaps

    Luke

    • customer service Ashley says:

      Hi Luke,

      Thanks for the enquiry.

      We do not recommend any of our products be “thinned” out. This will compromise the performance if the product and could result in it not doing what it is designed to do.

      I hope this helps.

      Regards – INOX Team

  12. Greg Rashford says:

    What product would you recommend for lubricating mountain bike chains?

    • customer service Ashley says:

      Hi Greg,

      Thanks for the enquiry. You Can use either the INOX MX5 Plus or the INOX MX9 No Chucka Chain Lube.

      Regards – INOX Team

  13. No questions here. Just a kudos. Absolutely amazing product. I use it on tools in my boat which are typically useless in 6 months. I found MX4 about 3 years ago and my pliers work better than new til this day

  14. Hi,
    Which product is best for fishing sounder cables i.e power and transducer? I frequently remove the head unit of my sounder which is used on a kayak as it needs to Be off for transportation. The cables are therefore exposed to salty moisture.
    Is there a good way to use one of These products to protect the cable ends?
    Thanks

    • customer service Ashley says:

      Hi Dominic,

      Our LANOX MX4 heavy duty lubricant is perfect for this application, its non-toxic, will not effect rubber or plastics, its non-conductive and heaps more. Check it out in the “OUR PRODUCTS” tab at the top of the page.

      Regards – INOX Team

  15. Hi Team,
    Can i use this product on external wood on my boat as a protective and penetrator Thanks Paul

    • customer service Ashley says:

      Hi Paul,

      LANOX is heavily used in the timber industry and even more commonly used on boats! You can also use the LANOX MX4 Grease, this has a higher content of lanolin therefore will protect your timber from that nasty salty environment.

      Regards – INOX Team.

  16. William Collins says:

    Hi, On a New Harley the zinc coated bolts tend to corrode ( tarnish with a powdery coating ). Which Innox product do you recommend to spray on bike? I will let everyone on HD Forum know as we all have this problem. Thank – you Bill.

    • customer service Ashley says:

      Hi Bill,

      Thanks for the enquiry. You can use either INOX MX3 or LANOX MX4, I would suggest wiping any excess off with a rag as this is an oil based lubricant and could make some areas a little slippery.

      Regards – INOX Team

  17. whats best to dilute lanox for a finer spray mist?
    also to wash it off?

    • customer service Ashley says:

      Hi Steve,

      Thanks for the enquiry.

      We do not recommend diluting any of our INOX products. Lanox can be cleaned with a hot soapy water, then a rinse off with water. If it is on concrete then you may need to degrease it, followed with a pressure wash.

      Regards – INOX Team.

  18. Hi Inox team!
    I have been using Inox MX3 and MX3FG to protect carbon steel knives for some time. I have just heard about Lanox. Which would be better for protecting simple tools like these against rust? Also which would be better for keeping a simple pivot/pin lubricated and clean?
    Thanks!

    • customer service Ashley says:

      Hi Christian,

      Thanks for the enquiry.

      The INOX MX3FG would be best used on knives if they are in contact with food, keep in mind LANOX is NOT food grade. LANOX is a heavier lubricant and has excellent resistance to salt water and other harsh environments, making it great to prevent rust etc. I would suggest INOX MX3 or INOX MX5 Plus for the pivot/pin application, these are both thin type lubricants allowing them to penetrate around the pin or pivot.

      I hope this helps.

      Regards – INOX team.

  19. I used this product to remove tar which had sprayed up the side of mt Peugot. Worked a treat! Ended up doing the whole car. Immaculate.

  20. Tony Sillars says:

    I used a lanolin product to spray my truck for rust proofing. Not sure if this product is the same if not. But is this suitable or do you suggest another lanolin product.
    Thanks

    • customer service Ashley says:

      Hi Tony,

      The LANOX MX4 is commonly used in this application, we use a high quality double screened Lanolin, making MX4 the perfect spray to combat rust!

      Regards – INOX Team.

  21. Tom Pearce says:

    Hi

    Will Lanox effect the paint on my outboard motor with continual use. Will it fade the paint. Although it says Lanox is safe to use on rubber hoses ect, will it effect rubber with continual use?

    Thanks

    Tom

    • charmaine says:

      Hi Tom,

      Lanox will not affect the paint on your outboard motor, or fade the paint. Lanox does not swell rubber or rubber parts, and will be safe to use.

      Regards, INOX Team.
