Texture of Grease Review

Texture is observed when a small sample of grease is pressed between thumb and index finger and slowly drawn apart. Texture can be described as:

  • Brittle: the grease ruptures or crumbles when compressed.

  • Buttery: the grease separates in short peaks with no visible fibers.

  • Long fiber: the grease stretches or strings out into a single bundle of fibers.

  • Resilient: the grease can withstand moderate compression without permanent deformation or rupture.

  • Short fiber: the grease shows short break-off with evidence of fibers.

  • Stringy: the grease stretches or strings out into long, fine threads, but with no visible evidence of fiber structure.
