    Generally speaking, white lithium is used for lubricating metal-to-metal contact points that are not subject to heat, friction, high speeds, etc. Examples of where white lithium is used would be things such as doors, springs, latches, hinges, etc. For greasing such things as spindles, wheel bearing assemblies, casters, etc., you would be better off using a EP lithium grease.
